      Not true.

      From Chartmasters = 279,4 million records sold (through studio albums sales + compilations + live albums + physical singles + digital singles).

        That's why question mark was there, since first post they I found was from press release 2015 where 200m records were claimed.

        So, glad we got all facts up here, and that's still over 60,000,000 difference in records and this trolling from Queen fans can stop now.

        Btw, you probably counted 3CD/The Platinum Collection Box (2000) as 6,9m for each CD (20,7m in total) because he posted it like that, but it's actually 6,9m for boxset, not 6,9m for each cd. Just saying.

            Not even close. So you can stop talking about Madonna here now.
            Well firstly anyone who says we shouldn’t talk about Madonna, you’re wrong, we should. The reason why is because we are making comparisons between her and Queen. Madonna has sold more physical albums than Queen but when you add in DVD sales and streaming/downloads on Chartmasters.org website, you’ll see it is extremely close. The Bohemian Rhapsody movie put Queen onto another level.

            Queen’s music is extremely popular with the downloading/streaming generation and they’re far more popular than Madonna right now. Perhaps if she released a movie that would change.

              If you want to compare overall sales, and analyze them, as you're doing now, feel free. It's ok.

              But please refrain from comments such as "Huge drop for Madame X this week! Yay!!!".

              • Yeah I don't see anything wrong with mentioning Madonna as long as it's a healthy comparison. Mentioning Madonna = / = trolling. It makes sense to compare artists stats from time to time.

                Traditional-wise Madonna sold more records than Queen (about 60million more) but Queen is pretty much outstreaming her big time on every streaming platform and that's the new form of music consumption these days. So IMO both artists are amazing and have brilliant numbers. Madonna wins records-wise, Queen wins streaming-wise, fair enough.

                      Sales are even higher guys! . . . I realized that I didn't include the video sales (which in Queen's case were huge).

                      The correct and final report is this one:

                      Studio Albums - 80,9 million
                      Compilations - 79,2 million

                                                But to the best of my knowledge gold singles in the US were for 1 million sales and platinum for 2 million
                                                I believe this was reduced to 500k and 1m in the 80ties (1989?)

                                                Anyone has any supporting data on this?.
