It's 40 years later and Michael Jackson's Thriller album is still the biggest selling album in music. This week, on C'Mon Son! The Podcast, Ed Lover pays homage to this certified international classic, as it so deserves.
After holding nothing back, Lover basically says to throw the whole AMA's away for not letting Chris Brown perform and pay tribute to Michael Jackson’s 40th anniversary of Thriller. Getting into the nitty gritty of the official public statements that were made, calling out the decision, and expressing “it’s not about f***ing Chris Brown, it’s about Michael Jackson, the greatest of all f***ing time.
Ed said, guess what? “I don’t need you to do it, I’ll do it my damn self,” before taking the tribute into his own hands.
After listing off just a few in a long list of impressive stats about MJ’s first number one album, which stayed at top of the charts for “37 consecutive weeks” and produced “7 singles” all of which “reached the Top 10 on the Hot 100 Chart… with ‘Beat It’ and ‘Billie Jean’ reaching No. 1,” Ed delved into Thriller, track by track.
Listen to it all in the episode above.
