Michael Jackson's 'Thriller' overtaken as best-selling album of all-time in the US

Eagles Now Have The #1 Album Of All Time

The RIAA, the Recording Industry Association Of America, explained to the Associated Press that their record, Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975, has reached platinum status 38 times.

The Eagles have overtaken Michael Jackson to be named as the artists behind the best-selling album of all time.

Just a week after it was announced that Post Malone's Stoney unseated Thriller as the longest-charted R&B/Hip-Hop album of all time, yet another record that the late, great King of Pop had set has been smashed.

What's perhaps even more impressive is that Eagles' Hotel California is third on the list, having sold 26 million copies.

UK urged to stand with United States against Iran by Woody Johnson
We don't support the sanctions; they are a strategic error, but we will comply with them says Prime Minister Abadi. On Sunday, Johnson seemingly disregarded the move, urging British businesses directly to cut ties with Iran.


These historic sales pass those of Jackson's Thriller, last evaluated in 2017.

The Eagles' Greatest Hits 1971-1975, a perennial seller since its initial release in February 1976, has surpassed 38 million copies sold, according to the latest certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). One platinum marker used to be equivalent to selling one million albums, but starting in 2013 the RIAA has incorporated streaming numbers from YouTube, Spotify, and other digital music services into their sales figures. "It's been quite a ride", he said in a statement.

The Eagles formed their group in Los Angeles in 1971. They broke up in 1980, coming back together 14 years later with Henley and Glenn Frey being the only remaining original members. The sales and streaming numbers for Thriller were updated past year. The platinum certification was once equivalent to selling one million albums or tracks for a platinum album or record, respectively. Frey died in 2016, but the Grammy-winning band remains on tour.
