Queen’s greatest hits album just keeps racking up the sales and the history: it has broken records by becoming the first individual album to sell over seven million copies in just the UK.
Let’s put that into context for you: released in 1981, the album’s seven million sales means one in every four households in the UK will have one. It’s spent over a thousand weeks on the album chart.
They are nearly a million ahead of Abba’s Gold.
Drummer Roger Taylor said “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!”
