    It's that time of year again. Thank God Its Christmas has started to chart on Apple Music. I really wish Queen would produce an official video for this track as the extra exposure would surely enhance sales/downloads/streams. Brian May was quoted as saying they would definitely produce a video for the song as recently as 2015, but sadly one has never materialised.

    Would've been great to get David Mallet (Queen's best music video director) to film a video using the cast of Bohemian Rhapsody with a Christmas Theme, another missed opportunity?

    Thank God Its Christmas

    I hate to split hairs, the number is actually 4.001.000. 900 out! ;) I'd made a prediction this would happen before the years end back in the summer, its been a close run. I was expecting it to cross the 4 million mark in November. It seems to be slowing thanks to Universal doing some weird accounting due to the streams but hey ho! The BR soundtrack has actually sold more copies than Queen 1, Queen 2 and Hot Space, although that might be open to debate if you look at chartmasters.org.

    Amazing achievement, love the film or hate the film, Bohemian Rhapsody has propelled interest in Queen to levels not seen since Freddie sadly passed away! Are Queen bigger now than they have ever been?

    Queen
    The second act to make it to 20 million UK album sales was Queen, who crossed the line in 2003, 29 years after their album chart debut.

    The methodology I use for tracking Queen album sales (and, indeed, anyone else's) is to keep box sets of previously issued albums separate. For that reason, I have a lower total for Greatest Hits than the OCC, because I haven't added 33% of the Platinum Collection or 50% of the double pack with Greatest Hits II, to the total. The OCC also recognised that this was a case of "alternative facts" a while ago, and stopped doing it. But, because it would mean owning up to having made a mistake &/or misled people in the past, they never deducted the spurious additional sales from their running total. Which means I have a lower number for Greatest Hits than the OCC, and in my book it is not the UK's best selling album of all-time. (It is in 2nd place).

    People often like to describe bands as either "an albums band" or "a singles band". Queen are a good example of why this can be a minefield. As a rock band with a loyal following, they easily fit the "albums band" categorisation. But they also scored a string of big hit singles which sound very different from one another, making them a very successful pop group and "singles band" too. Well, they say facts never lie. 52% of Queen's album sales come from singles compilations, and 48% from studio and live albums. If ever there were a band who are simultaneously "an albums band" and "a singles band" it is Queen.

    Thanks to Yulelogger for their amazing work compiling this list.
    He can argue it anyway he wants. But Pc is just 3 gh cds wrapped in a platinum sleeve box.
    1 PC sale means 3 X a sale of GH 1, 2 and 3. So not just 33% should be added but every pc sale should be added as an album sale to gh 1,2 and 3. (obviously Pc sales as a unit sale should here be as set at 0)

    To this Queen total at least 4, 2 m should be added (assuming he accounted for every Pc sale as 1 album sale)

    Interesting enough GH 1 and 2 have been updated for certification BUT GH 3 has not been ( should have added 3 additional platinum awards if they creditted 33% of Pc sales

    Thanks Robbie for your reply. The BR soundtrack has still taken a small sales rise this week globally and next week should pass 4 million global sales. I’m annoyed though that the fantastic run it had inside the UK top 10 has stopped.

    The album album is still charting but it fell from 19-199 in the UK Album charts last week as it lost all its streaming sales. The album has made a slight recovery on the new Albums chart, it's climbed to number 140. It would appear that streaming sales have been switched to both 'Greatest Hits' and 'The Platinum Collection' which if correct involves a bit of creative interpretation of the Albums chart rules by Universal. The chart rule states:

    Where a track appears on more than one album by an artist, streams of this track will be attributed equally to each studio album and a maximum of one greatest hits album (the hits title with the highest sales DUS for that given week, or other hits title nominated in advance by label).

    The biggest seller on paid sales is 'The Platinum Collection' closely followed by 'Greatest Hits'. 'Bohemian Rhapsody OST' is way behind and has been for months yet until two weeks ago it was the nominated "Greatest Hits" album for all tracks that appear on the album. Universal must have decided to switch streaming sales away from BR but under the above chart rule everything would normally go to 'The Platinum Collection' yet on the main album chart 'Greatest Hits' is higher. This would suggest that Universal have nominated streams of all tracks that appear on 'Greatest Hits' to be linked to that album and streams of everything on 'The Platinum Collection' other than GH1 have been linked to TPC. It's either a creative interpretation of the chart rules or an error has been made. I suspect it's deliberate (as both TPC and GH are close in sales and perhaps Universal want to boost both albums) and not an error.

    The rules on linking streaming sales to hits albums can be something of a mess when the same tracks appear on a number of greatest hits albums.

    Target & Walmart Help Propel Vinyl Album Sales to Blockbuster Week
    12/2/2019 by Keith Caulfield

    Vinyl album sales in the U.S. surged pass the half-million mark last week, scoring the second-largest week for vinyl in 2019.

    According to Nielsen Music, 544,000 vinyl albums were sold in the U.S. in the week ending Nov. 28 (up a big 60% compared to the previous week’s tally of 340,000). The 544,000 haul is the second-biggest week for the format this year, behind only the 827,000 sold during Record Store Day week (week ending April 18).

    To compare, in 2018, during the tracking week that ended with Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22, 2018), there were 355,000 vinyl albums sold. And, in the week ending with Thanksgiving Day in 2017 (Nov. 23, 2017), there were 331,000 vinyl LPs sold.

    The gain in vinyl sales in the tracking week ending Nov. 28, 2019 is largely owed to sale pricing and promotion by Target and Walmart. Starting on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 28, the final day of the tracking week), all vinyl albums in Walmart stores were discounted to $15, while Target offered a key selection of vinyl LPs for just $15. Both offers were advertised in each company’s widely-read weekly circular advertisements touting in-store promotions and deals for Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday (Nov. 29).

    Nielsen reports that 42% of all vinyl albums sold in the week ending Nov. 28 were purchased through mass merchant stores, of which Target and Walmart are both categorized. Comparably, in the eight weeks previous, mass merchants would normally account for anywhere between 6% to 15% of a week’s overall vinyl album sales. (Traditionally, the bulk of vinyl LP sales in a week will come from online retailers such as Amazon, and independent or non-traditional record stores.)

    Among the titles touted in Target’s ad: The Beatles’ Abbey Road, Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, Ariana Grande’s Thank U, Next and Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black. As for Walmart, their ad highlighted three titles: Abbey Road, Queen’s Greatest Hits and a deluxe edition of the Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 soundtrack.

    Sales of vinyl albums at both Target and Walmart were also enhanced by how they also carry exclusive variants of some titles. For example, Target has a glow-in-the-dark green vinyl edition of When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? which was included in the $15 promotion.

    The top five selling vinyl albums in the week ending Nov. 28 were:

    1. When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (20,000; up 345% compared to the previous week’s sales),
    2. Abbey Road (19,000; up 385%),
    3. Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (16,000; up 786%),
    4. Queen’s Greatest Hits (14,000; up 563%) and
    5. Prince and The Revolution’s Purple Rain soundtrack (8,000; up 584%).

    For sales and charting purposes, all versions and variants of an album are generally combined together for one overall sales sum and chart position.

    Both Target and Walmart’s $15 sale pricing lasted in-stores through Friday, Nov. 29, while supplies lasted. Some of the discounted LPs were still priced at $15 online at Target.com and Walmart.com by Monday (Dec. 2). In turn, we should see another big week for vinyl sales in the week ending Dec. 5, as that week will include Black Friday (Nov. 29) along with the very busy post-Thanksgiving shopping weekend, along with Cyber Monday (Dec. 2).
