            • Queen’s Greatest Hits becomes first album in Official Charts history to reach 7 million UK chart ‘sales’


              Brian May and Roger Taylor “humbled and honoured” as they make the milestone

              British rock legends Queen make UK chart history as they become the first act ever to reach 7 million UK chart ‘sales’ of an album, the Official Charts Company can confirm.

              Queen break Official Chart records as they surpass the 7 million milestone with their 1981 Greatest Hits album. The Official best-selling album of all time in the UK, the record includes such classic tracks as We Will Rock You, Don’t Stop Me Now and the group’s top-selling behemoth Bohemian Rhapsody.

              Greatest Hits reaches this record-breaking achievement through a combination of physical sales, downloads and streams.


              Back in 2014, Queen’s Greatest Hits became the first album to ever surpass 6 million sales in the UK and, as pure sales (physical and digital download copies) of the collection continue to increase, the group’s back catalogue proves enduringly popular in the modern streaming age. Greatest Hits has accumulated an incredible 1.26 billion total UK streams to date, with the album’s most-streamed track being Bohemian Rhapsody, which boasts 240 million UK streams and counting.

              The record also recently celebrated its 1000th week on the Official Albums Chart, with Queen becoming the first British act ever to achieve this landmark milestone.

              Speaking to OfficialCharts.com, Queen guitarist Brian May says: “We’re here to bring you the joyous news that Queen’s Greatest Hits album has sold 7 million copies, which nobody has ever done before. No album has done this before in history. Thank you, we appreciate it.”

              Queen’s Roger Taylor adds: “The British public and their infinitely-great taste have made this the biggest-selling album in history. Thank you very much; we’re humbled and honoured. We salute you!”

              Martin Talbot, Chief Executive, Official Charts Company, comments: “It really is a fantastic achievement by Queen to become the first act to notch up 7 million sales of one album, with their legendary Greatest Hits.

              "When it was released for the first time in 1981, career-spanning packages such as Greatest Hits were relatively rare, the preserve of only the very biggest acts. Queen’s Greatest Hits can claim to be in more than one-in-four UK households’ record collections today, and there is no doubt that its massive success has done as much as any other release to turn hits packages into the omnipresent album concept that they are today."

              • yeah and the album will reach 24x UK platinum next year as it's expected to sell around 200k again this year and around 175,000 in 2023 while the Best selling albums not counting compilations are the Beatles Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band Adele's 21 Oasis What's The Story Morning Glory Michael Jacksons Thriller etc. and the later turns 40 this year granted the US population is roughly 5x the size of the UKs so Queen's greatest hits selling 7 million copies in the UK is equivalent to Thriller selling nearly 35,000,000 in the US or around 10.4% of the population owning a copy. also sales in general are down a lot since their hey day in the early 2000s. take the sales of 4th season American Idol winner Carrie Underwood her Debut album 2005s Some Hearts and her most recent album to reach platinum 2018s Cry Pretty is only around 1,000,000 sold or down nearly 90% in sales from Some Hearts selling 9 million granted that's in the US

                                  • Catalog Albums/Billboard 200 Chart Update – August 2022 c/o Miguelito

                                    Queen’s Gambit: Queen’s “Greatest Hits” Enjoys #1 Catalog Run

                                    Queen’s Greatest Hits returned to the #1 spot of the Catalog chart in the last week of July, and has completed a run through the month of August as well, pulling even with Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city and Bad Bunny’s YHLQMDLG for most weeks at #1 Catalog this year. Queen’s now in the running for being the top catalog album for weeks at #1 for the fourth year in a row; it’s already the only album to get the most weeks at #1 for three straight years. Its total will be well down from a high of 35 weeks last year. The album also broke into the top 10 on Catalog Sales for the first time in 2022 for the last two weeks of August.

                                    TOP TEN SUMMARY – CATALOG CHART
                                    (Red = Catalog chart positions Aug 6-13-20-27; Blue = Billboard 200 chart positions)
                                    Queen, Greatest Hits (270/33): 1-1-1-1 (27-29-26-26)

                                    Catalog Notes:
                                    Queen’s Greatest Hits (1992) extends its run to five weeks at Catalog #1 (Aug 6 through 27), increasing its overall #1 run to 104 weeks.

                                    Queen’s Greatest Hits (1992) returns to the top 10 of catalog sales for the first time this year (#9 CS, #36 TAS, Aug 20). It has been as high as #34 TAS this year. Last year, it scored 40 weeks in the catalog sales top 10, including four weeks at #1.

                                          • Queen's current Gold & Platinum Album awards total according to the RIAA is 43 million units with no Studio album updated for 20 years. Would be great if Hollywood Records did an update for albums too.
