Jagged Little Pill is the third studio album (and the first to be released internationally) by Canadian singer Alanis Morissette. The album made a sharp turn in genre and style for Alanis from her previous dance pop sound. The album garnered great success, spending twelve non-consecutive weeks at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart, and became one of three albums – along with Thriller by Michael Jackson and Falling into You by Céline Dion – to remain in the Top Ten for over a year. The album had a slow rise up the charts, but by 1996 had gained momentum with four million shipments in the US during 1995 and throughout 1996 would become the best-selling album of the year with ten million shipments. On July 29th 1998, the RIAA certified it 16.00× Multi-Platinum. It was the second-best-selling album of the 1990s, behind Shania Twain's Come on Over, with twenty-eight million copies sold by 2000. By January 2005, the album had sold 30 million units worldwide. In October 2002, Rolling Stone ranked it number 31 on its Women In Rock - The 50 Essential Albums list, and in 2003 the magazine ranked it number 327 on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
