Portrait of Michael Jackson in a yellow and white suit in front of a white background.
The image is from a promotion poster for the Michael Jackson's sixth album Thriller. This is one of Jackson's most successful albums that includes his biggest hits such as "Wanna be Startin' Somethin,'" the title track, "Beat It," "Billie Jean," "P.Y.T (Pretty Young Thing)." The album received numerous awards which included "Album of the Year" at the 1984 Grammy's.
Thriller was pioneering and revolutionary. The music videos for the singles "Beat It," "Thriller," and "Billie Jean" transformed the medium into a movie-like production with a storyline, special effects, and dance sequence. Thriller is ranked number 20 on Rolling Stone's "500 Greatest Album of All Times" and is also included in the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry for social and cultural significance.
