Michael Jackson’s legacy is hitting some high points as of late.
Not only did the new documentary “Thriller 40,” which celebrates the King of Pop’s life and accomplishments, premiere on Showtime Friday (Dec. 2), but his music streaming numbers are also spiking.
Last week, a trio of Jackson albums claimed several spots on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart, which consists of 25 spaces overall. Unsurprisingly, “Thriller” took a spot, peaking at No. 6 during the week ending on Dec. 2, according to Luminate.

“The Essential Michael Jackson” hit the chart at No. 21 and “The Jackson 5 Christmas Album” hit No. 23.
Jackson’s trio of album placements beat out contemporary stars in the genre, including SZA, The Weeknd, Brent Faiyaz and Frank Ocean – all of whom fill two spots on the R&B Albums chart.
