    AMAZING! A feat nobody else will ever accomplish. This is 6 times more than Beyonce’s total US album sales!

      It’s nice to see the QUEEN is on your mind as usual (makes perfect since that would be the first thing on your mental when u see the KING)

      The Queen sold 1/3rd that amount since 2003 and about that amount since 98 in the US. The Queens career sales stand at THRILLER(70 Million+)

      THE QUEEN sales put your favS (ALIYAH & RIH) Sales to shame

      Thriller if released TODAY as MJs debut album would probably sale 15 Million at best.

        The lies 😂 are you REALLY trying to include Destinys Child Sales? In that case, Kelly and Michelle have sold 20 million as solo acts 😂😂😂😂

      • Diabetes UNBOTHERED August 24, 2021

        Actually the Queen solo sold 17 million US (half of thriller) and if u add beys DREAMGIRLS soundtrack her US sales are closer to 20 million. Since 98 the Queen has sold 40 million US, Don’t downplay the Queens success. The queens WRITING ON THE WALL album outsold your fav Aliyah’s ENTIRE DISCOGRAPHY

        The Queen currently working on the NEXT THRILLER as we speak

        You mean JENNIFER HUDSON’S dream girl album!?! 😂 You’re trying to steal accolades just like your “queen”

      • Farrahs Luggage August 24, 2021

        Your queen is working on her next “The Gift” 😂 Brag about those sales. Or “all is love”

    Hey y’all the most interesting thing about this album is the roll out strategy. Everyone should read about it, very unexpected but it worked clearly for the time.

    This is the only civilized post you’re getting from me
