Michael Jackson’s 1st solo release in 1979 with mega hit songs Rock With You, Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough & more. Just weeks shy of his 21st birthday, Jackson released Off the Wall, the album that established him as a grown-up solo superstar and set the stage for his coronation as King of Pop. Thriller was the sixth studio album by the American singer and songwriter Michael Jackson, released on November 29, 1982 by Epic Records. It was produced by Quincy Jones, who had previously worked with Jackson on his 1979 album Off the Wall. Jackson wanted to create an album where “every song was a killer”. With the ongoing backlash against disco music at the time, he moved in a new musical direction, resulting in a mix of pop, post-disco, rock, funk, synth-pop, and R&B sounds. Thriller foreshadows the contradictory themes of Jackson’s personal life, as he began using a motif of paranoia and darker themes. Paul McCartney appears on “The Girl Is Mine”, the first credited appearance of a featured artist on a Michael Jackson album.
