This article lists the singles discography of Michael Jackson, with a partial list of singles released physically and other singles (non-charting reissues are not included). 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, IFPI Denmark, SNEP, BVMI, IFPI Norway, Recorded Music NZ, PROMUSICAE, IFPI Switzerland, and BPI.

In some countries, such as the United Kingdom and Canada, the value of the awards has changed over time; since 1989, the certification is based on the single's year of release. Since 1997, in the United States and Australia, the certification is based on the year an award is given.

NOTES:

  • 1 Not released for sale in the United States; released only to radio in the United States.
  • 2 Not released physically in most overseas territories.
  • 3 Not released in the United States.
  • 4 Prior to September 1993, the charts in Sweden were released bi-weekly; Austria released charts bi-weekly in the 1980s, and monthly in the 70s.
  • 5 Prior to November 1984, there are no reliable weekly charts from France. In 2000, Fabrice Ferment, in collaboration with SNEP, compiled monthly charts for the period's pre-SNEP charts based on retail sales of the time.
