Vyhlásenie MJ Estate (k článku) - 100 000 000 pre Thriller

4.1. 2013 zverejnil bloger magazínu the New Yorker článok, v ktorom spochybnil predajnosť albumu Thriller a snažil sa vyvrátiť, že z albumu sa nepredalo 100 miliónov kusov (a viac), k čomu špekuloval s inými príkladmi a jeho dôkazmi.

MJ Estate aj na žiadosť fanúšikov vydali prehlásenie, v ktorom potvrdili, že z albumu sa predalo viac ako 100 miliónov kusov:

We understand that loyal MJ fans are reacting to the article that appeared in the New Yorker questioning the sales of Michael’s “Thriller” album. Let’s state this for the record: “Thriller” has sold MORE THAN 100,000,000 ALBUMS WORLDWIDE. In addition, the number of singles sold cannot even be tallied. It is far and away the largest selling album in record industry history which, ironically, the same reporter noted in the December issue of the same magazine. Quite frankly, we are unaware of the credentials of the blogger in the New Yorker, and point out that it is his opinion only, and not based on the facts of the extraordinary 30-year sales history of Michael’s masterpiece.
