Off the Wall is African American pop and R&B singer Michael Jackson's fifth solo album. The album is often hailed as his breakthrough effort and was a major success for the Jacksons frontman, despite critics who said Jackson's career was doomed after leaving Motown Records in 1975. In December 1995, the RIAA certified Off the Wall at 7x Platinum for sales of 7 million in the United States alone, and the album has thus far sold 20 million copies worldwide. For a while, it was the biggest recording by a black artist in history until his follow up Thriller album which is the best selling album of all time by anyone.[2] Off the Wall may refer to: Off the Wall, an album by Michael Jackson Off the Wall (song), a song by Michael Jackson Off the Wall (radio), a radio show from Long Island, New York, USA Off the Wall (Atari 2600), a 1989 video game Off The Wall (clothing retailer...

Off the Wall was a smash success. It reached #3 in the Billboard album charts, spending 48 consecutive weeks inside the top 20, and, according to Billboard, it was the third best-selling album of 1980 in the United States and the best-selling R&B album of the year. Most importantly, the album made Jackson the first solo artist in history to achieve four Billboard Hot 100 top 10 singles from one album. It was similarly successful in Europe, reaching #5 in the UK. Despite its commercial success, Jackson felt the album should have made a much bigger impact. In particular, Jackson was angry that he had won "only" one Grammy Award at the Grammy Awards of 1980[3] (Grammy Award for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance for "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough"), losing the Grammy Award for Best Disco Recording to Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive". He became determined to exceed everybody's expectations with his next album. Even Jackson couldn't have prepared himself for the phenomenon that followed. (Though his personal vow was fulfilled at the Grammy Awards of 1984 when he swept the ceremony, taking home a record-breaking 8 awards). It has been suggested that Billboard be merged into this article or section. ...

On October 16, 2001, a special edition of the album was released. It contained some bonus material, including the original demo of "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" and "Working Day and Night", both recorded at home in 1978, plus interviews with Quincy Jones and Rod Temperton. The set also contains a new booklet featuring previously unseen photos, lyrics and additional info. After the re-release, the catalogue sales picked up around the world. It re-entered modestly in the UK, U.S., and some other albums charts, and the Living with Michael Jackson interview in 2003 gave it another major boost, where it has been in and out of the UK Albums Chart ever since. A HMV sale in July 2004 gave the album another huge boost with an impressive chart re-entry at #13 in the UK, the highest for 21 years. UK sales since the re-release are around 200,000, and it was the 189th best-selling album of 2003.
