    Thanks for this.

    According to Paul on Haven:

    69 - 73 - 89,500 - 6,258,000 - Queen - Greatest Hits - 07/11/81 - 33

    89,500 copies sold, counting streaming equivalent sales. It has done (always with streaming) some 445,000 copies since reissued in 2011.

    Without counting streaming, it can't be very far from 400,000 or so.

    Total shipments for this should be around 5,400,000 copies on its own.

    Plus almost 200,000 as part of Greatest Hits I & II and 1,960,000 as part of Platinum Collection, all for a combined 7,560,000 if we counted everything together.
    Amazing figures for Greatest Hits here in the UK. Hernan out of interest do you have the Year End positions for GH since its release in 1981? I know the sales suffered immensely after the release of the Platinum Collection so I presume when it missed the year end charts at that time perhaps The Platinum Collection replaced it in the Year End chart. Zeus555 has done exactly this for the Abba Gold collection in the Abba sales forum, easily the 2 biggest artist hits albums here in the UK with Queen slightly extending their lead over the last 2 years.

    Queen Sales and Charts - 2016

    2016 started with good figures from Under Pressure, because of David Bowie's death. It had high figures on I-Tunes, charting both in Great Britain and in the USA, and also helped the Greatest Hits albums to increase, mainly in the first period of the year.
    Checking several countries, in Great Britain it was another excellent year for Greatest Hits. My estimation is that it exceeded the 80,000 units as it did in 2015. If I have to estimate Greatest Hits II, I think it's on 25,000/30,000 units, while Platinum Collection is on about 20,000. All these figures include also the streaming market, even if it's extremely difficult to count Platinum Colletcion and Greatest Hits II, as we don't have info about their performances into the Top-200 Albums in Great Britain.
    I expect a total of 180,000/200,000 albums in Great Britain in 2016.

    In the USA Greatest Hits spent 3 weeks into the charts, while in all the remaining weeks Platinum Collection was present, and now it's the 107th most selling album in 2016. Obviously these results do include the streaming market.

    In Canada we have a week into the Top-100 for Platinum Collection, two weeks for Greatest Hits, while in the first part of the year Icon was always present. In the second half, Absolute Greatest was always present. And I think the latter has been the best selling album in Canada in 2016.

    In Italy, as always, Platinum Colletcion did extremely well, but also the two Greatest Hits had a good success. Greatest Hits II spent three weeks into the Top-100, two weeks Greatest Hits. And both were also present into the vinyl chart in the last few weeks (that is to say from their release in vinyl).

    In France Platinum Collection had the best performances. It never charted into the Top-100, but it was often into the Top-100 Back Catalogue, reaching the highest places in the Christmas week. Globally, in 2016, Platinum Collection did better than in 2015. Into the Top-100 Back Catalogue, Greatest Hits II spent one week and Greatest Hits spent three weeks.

    In Australia, once again, great performance from Greatest Hits, always present into the Top-50 Catalogue Album, spending also a lot of weeks into the Top-100 and, to a lesser extent, into the Top-50.

    Both in Poland (one week) and in Portugal (two weeks), Platinum Collection charted into the Top-10.

    Looking at the other compilations, Queen Forever spent some weeks into the Portuguese Top-50, some weeks into the Spanish Top-100 and a couple of week into the Austrian chart, while in the last few weeks, it registered good numbers in Belgium.

    By comparison,
    On December 1st it was announced Canadian rapper Drake is officially crowned king of Spotify. The One Dance hitmaker has been named the most-streamed artist of 2016 on the music service with an eye-watering 4.7 billion plays of his entire catalogue, up from 1.8 billion in 2015.
    On all services for his entire career? 10 billion streams?

    So hopefully close to 4 billion by this time next year.

    I didn't realise Spotify was only 40% worldwide. I thought it was 80%. Maybe that's in UK alone.
    Yes. The streaming sector is growing fastly, so The Beatles may well exceed the 4 billion total by the end of next year. We are in the beginning of a movie and we don't know what is to come yet.

    By December 2015, Queen were just above 1 billion streams (and probably around 2.6 billion counting all streaming services worldwide, assuming my quick calculation works). This means they have added around 1.5 billion or so in the past 12 months.

    So The Beatles did 2 billion during the last year, Queen probably 1.5 billion.

    An interesting factor is that a lot Beatles videos (most of them) seem to have been deleted from YouTube. And while it is generally claimed that YouTube and Spotify attract different types of public, I think it is clear the more widely available your music is via YouTube, the less chances you have to achieve a big streaming total on Spotify/similar plaforms.

    All in all, the gap isn't quite as strong and works as a truer reflection of overall popularity.

    The Beatles have sold twice as many albums/records as Queen. But they are hardly twice as popular as them, as proven by the streaming servives. The Beatles are bigger than Queen but not by such a big gap as the physical sales make it look like, if you ask me.

    For your information,
    "Ringo Starr tweeted Dec. 20 that The Beatles have now passed the 2 billion mark in online streamed music. “The Beatles music has streamed 2 billion times. Wow. Peace and love,” his @ringostarrmusic Twitter account announced at roughly 3 p.m. ET. The figure was confirmed by a spokesman for Universal Music Group which owns Capitol Records, the Beatles record label since the 1960s.

    I assume that is for ALL streaming services. What are the Queen figures overall?
    In terms of subscribers, Spotify represents less than 40% worldwide.

    So assuming Queen did equally well across all online platforms, and using 1.6 billion Spotify's streams as our basis, we would have an estimated 4.1 billion overall or so.

    Plus, Queen have had 3 million views on YouTube since September 2014.

    Quen are one of the groups that truly rule in this category.

    I'm here, buddy. Still read the forum, but not much to post unfortunately.

    The next 100 million song should be I Want To Break Free, but it is going to take some time:

    I Want To Break Free - 74,093,368 (62,788,524 + 11,304,844)

    Plus:

    We Are The Champions - 58,735,761

    By my reckoning, Queen's total streams must be on 1.6 billion on Spotify overall, which is pretty strong.

    Nice to see Thank God It's Christmas getting a little recognition as it charts in the following countries Spotify charts

    Thank God It's Christmas - Non-Album Single
    Spotify:
    #44 Austria
    #55 Germany
    #62 Denmark

    One of Queen's biggest mistakes was not to make a video for this Christmas single, would surely have faired a lot better with an official video, surely a retrospective animated video would have an impact on this songs popularity!!!

    Weird that I II & III fell off and that this re-entered
    Bigman, I thought exactly the same, it's either The Platinum Collection or Greatest Hits, never both!!! I know most of the sales for these compilations are digital and not physical so I wonder if some sort of promotion is the reason why. I know Greatest Hits was released on vinyl last week and charted at No 22 in the Vinyl Chart so that may have had an impact but does anybody actually know why these 2 releases seem to alternate on the chart?
