“Queen – Greatest Hits” has become the first album to reach six million sales in the UK, according to the Official Chart Company.
The 1981 album features 17 of the band’s best loved hits, including “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “Another One Bites The Dust,” “Don’t Stop Me Now,” and “We Are The Champions”.
Brian May has posted a YouTube message to welcome the impressive milestone:
Martin Talbot, Chief Executive of the Official Charts Company, says:
“Becoming the first album to pass six million sales is a quite incredible achievement by Queen and their iconic Greatest Hits album. Ever since it was first released in 1981, this package of classic pop and rock tracks has been an indispensable item in every music fan’s record collection – perhaps THE definitive greatest hits album!”
The album was followed up in 1991 by “Queen Greatest Hits – Volume 2” which is at Number 10 in the UK’s all-time Official Albums Chart with sales of 3.9 million.
