That was a sloooooow sales week. It's never been the case before that the No. 100 album sold 11% of the No. 1 album. 21 alone sold only 12% less than the No.-1-album.AndiIversen wrote:Netherlands: keeps her top 5 again!

You shouldn't have put the "just kidding" comment, I'd have liked to see what the MJ stans would have rushed in to say...shadesofblack wrote:I was thinking about Thriller and 21 and their respective place in history. Forget the discrepancy of sales (time and climate and technology will never allow that to be a fair comparison. Plus MJ has sold between 65-130m depending on who you talk to.) I think if 21 tops Thriller with most weeks in the top ten on billboard (and especially if it passes Born in the USA), it will go a long way in validating the importance of this album. It is more than just this generations Thriller. And one day it will stand above comparison (not above Thriller, above comparison to Thriller). Or I hope so any way. Damn MJ fans. Just kidding! Love MJ! Lol.
