Michael Jackson’s Thriller is #1 on the Top Pop Catalog Albums chart.

The new 25th Anniversary issue would have opened at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart as well,
but as a catalog release, it was ineligible.

The project includes remixed "Thriller" tracks by will.i.am, Kanye West, Fergie and Akon.
