Who cares? Thriller wasn't the biggest selling album in UK anyways.

Good for her. Hopefully her third album will be good.

Though personally, and just subjective, the sales of her album have been oddly huge. It's a good album, but 20 million in such a short period is just huge. Obviously opinions differ, but I thought "Set Fire to the rain" pretty much contributed to that. Didn't feel like the rest of the song were of the same caliber.
