This article page lists the Michael Jackson singles discography, with a partial list of singles released physically and other singles (not including re-issues, unless they charted). Included are peak chart positions for the United States, Australia, Austria4, Canada, France5, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, New Zealand, Spain, Sweden4, Switzerland and United Kingdom; also, certifications by RIAA, ARIA, Music Canada, SNEP, IFPI Germany, RIANZ and BPI.

Note that in some countries such as the United Kingdom and Canada, the value of the awards has changed over time with the certifications criteria depending on year of release of the single. In the United States, the criteria don't depend by year of release of the single and the current criteria is active from 1989.

NOTES:

  • 1 Promo-only release.
  • 2 Digital release, or song not released as single that charted due to digital download.
  • 3 Jackson was not credited on the charts for his vocal contributions (except to "Eaten Alive" by Diana Ross that in some countries was accredited also to Jackson).
  • 4 Prior September 1993, the charts in Sweden were bi-weekly, as well as the charts in Austria during the '80s (monthly in the '70s).
  • 5 Prior November 1984, there wasn't a reliable weekly chart for the singles in France. So, in 2000, Fabrice Ferment in collaboration with SNEP compiled monthly charts for the period pre-SNEP chart based on retail sales of the time.
