    as i understand it
    Individual downloaded tracks and streaming numbers can be credited to either GH album or original studio album etc. It makes little sense to have both versions separately certified this way.
    There are numerous GH packages which had tracks added years later to boost sales and interest. The only argument is, I guess, both have a separate catalog number but as Hollywood can credit sales to either package that feature the song....they can manipulate it as they see fit.

    For those that don't visit Chartmasters (Why not it's Amazing) here is MJD's response

    Yes, the situation about Queen’s US compilations has always been confusing. Let’s clear things up.

    About our figures:
    • GH (original, 1981) sold 4.27m with the 2004 WWRY edition included
    • GH 2 (original, unreleased in the US) sold 150k (imports)
    • GH 1&2 sold 1.175m
    • PC sold 1.55m
    • Classic Queen sold 3.7m
    • GH (US, 1992) sold 7.47m

    No double counting, and no merging apart from GH 1981 + GH 2004. This can be debatable, it would be better to split everything on next update I suppose.

    Now, the RIAA certs are kinda messy. About PC, it was the same album certified in 2005 and 2012, so ‘only’ 2xP total, it then went 5xP in 2021 for 1.67m boxes sold. It’s consistent with our 1.55m estimate from an earlier date.

    Certifications from GH are bogus though. Former awards of Classic Queen (3xP up to 2002, 3.7m sales now) and GH (8xP up to 2006, including the original plus 1992) were fine if we pass on the dubious merge of GHs.

    The new ones make little sense though since it appears they haven’t merge the albums the same way as before. The 1981 can’t be at 9xP if we don’t add the 1992 release that is now listed aside at 5xP, and that one sold much more than 5m.

    Yet, if we add together the certified units from these main 3 releases (9+5+3), the total is good (we were at 14m+ but then now you need to add SPS).

    My guess is that they have now sorted things up, splitting the 1981 and 1992 releases, but they’ve put the wrong release dates in front of certs. Meaning:
    • the 1981 release with SPS is past 5m
    • the 1992 release with remaining SPS (same tracks included inside the 1981 release can’t be certified twice) is past 9m
    • the 2004 version may be included in one of these totals, which one is almost impossible to know as it depends on how they dispatched the SPS of the common tracks
    • no PC sales were certified on these awards, they stick to certifying it on its own

    Thanks Braca3, so has the Original GH sold 9,000,000 + 2021 and the 1992 Red Version sold 5,000,000 as the respective 9 x Platinum and 5 x Platinum Awards were both issued on the same day December 11 2020. It's all very confusing. It all boils down to Hollywood Records calling the 1992 issue Greatest Hits (which apart from 2 songs it is) If the had called it 'The Best of Queen' or similar there would be no confusion. For me personally the sales of both Greatest Hits should be combined and sales should be approaching 15,000,000 copies.

    Both version were certified originally. (Red version gold 11/16/92 platinum 1/13/93)
    have a screenshot but the site for not allow me to post it for some reason.

    If I remember correctly when GH was certified 7P they were merged / combined before decoupled again in dec 2020.
    I have no idea why they reversed the decision to combine the 2.

    Should Queen's Greatest Hits be 15 x Platinum in the USA?

    There is always lots of debate regarding the bands Greatest Hits album, Is it the UK's Best Selling Album? Should all the sales from The Platinum Collection be added to its total? But I'd like to ask 'Should Greatest Hits be 15 x Platinum in the USA?

    Looking at it's releases in America there are 3 main versions which are as follows

    1981 - Queen's Greatest Hits
    1992 - Queen's Greatest Hits (Red Edition)
    2004 - Queen's Greatest Hits (WWRY Edition)
    All subsequent vinyl re-issues on Hollywood Records have used the UK track listing (At least 4 various Limited Editions)

    RIAA Awards

    1981 - Queen's Greatest Hits
    Gold | December 20, 1981
    Platinum | December 30, 1981
    7x Multi-Platinum | December 9, 2002
    8x Multi-Platinum | May 23, 2006
    9x Multi-Platinum | December 11, 2020
    2021 USA Sales = 973,000 So should be 10 x Platinum!

    1992 - Queen's Greatest Hits (Red Edition)
    Gold | December 11, 2020
    Platinum | December 11, 2020
    5x Multi-Platinum | December 11, 2020

    2004 - Queen's Greatest Hits (WWRY Edition)
    No Sales Awards so Presumably added to the 1981 version

    So why has the RIAA combined GH81 and GHWWRY but not added GHRed? Below is the track listing for each version and although in different order the original 81 version and 92 version only have 4 songs not on both. The major omission is the 92 version doesn't have Bohemian Rhapsody as this was included on the 1992 3 x Platinum Classic Queen release. The 2004 Hollywood version of GH is identical to the UK version with 3 bonus tracks included.

    1981 - Queen's Greatest Hits - Vinyl
    Another One Bites The Dust
    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Crazy Little Thing Called Love
    Killer Queen
    Fat Bottomed Girls
    Bicycle Race
    Under Pressure
    We Will Rock You
    We Are The Champions
    Flash
    Somebody To Love
    You're My Best Friend
    Keep Yourself Alive
    Play The Game

    1992 - Queen's Greatest Hits (Red Edition) - CD
    We Will Rock You
    We Are The Champions
    Another One Bites The Dust
    Killer Queen
    Somebody To Love
    Fat Bottomed Girls
    Bicycle Race
    You're My Best Friend
    Crazy Little Thing Called Love
    Now I'm Here
    Play The Game
    Seven Seas Of Rhye
    Body Language
    Save Me
    Under Pressure
    Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy
    I Want To Break Free

    2004 - Queen's Greatest Hits (WWRY Edition) - CD

    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Another One Bites The Dust
    Killer Queen
    Fat Bottomed Girls
    Bicycle Race
    You're My Best Friend
    Don't Stop Me Now
    Save Me
    Crazy Little Thing Called Love
    Somebody To Love
    Now I'm Here
    Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy
    Play The Game
    Flash
    Seven Seas Of Rhye
    We Will Rock You
    We Are The Champions
    Bonus Tracks
    I'm In Love With My Car
    Under Pressure (Live)
    Tie Your Mother Down (Live)

    So should the 1981 and 1992 versions be combined to give Queen there first Diamond RIAA Album Award for 15,000,000 sales of Greatest Hits? Could Hollywood Records Queen's current record label in North America ask for both Awards to be Combined?
