''Thriller'' is the sixth studio album by Music/MichaelJackson, released in 1982. It went on to become the best-selling music album in history, selling over 65 domestically and 110 million copies world wide. Seven of the nine tracks on the album were released as singles, with each one reaching the Top 10 on the ''Billboard'' Hot 100. Three of the singles, "Billie Jean", "Beat It" and "Thriller" were accompanied by music videos that elevated the record to its iconic status. Although Jackson was already world famous since the 1970's and music videos already existed as a promotional tool both he and the medium became a dominating force in the music industry. "The King Of Pop" broke down racial barriers via his MTV appearances, won eight [[UsefulNotes/GrammyAward Grammys]] including the 1984 ''Album of the Year'' and even met US President UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan at the White House.
