Thanks to the new Queen movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” the legendary band has earned their highest charting album on the “Billboard” 200 in 38 years. And the group has not one, but two albums in the Top Ten.
First, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the companion album to the flick, lands at number three this week, moving 59,000 equivalent album units. The last time the band landed this high was back in 1980, when “The Game” spent five weeks at number one.
But that’s not all. The band also lands at number nine with their 51-track “Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection,” which moved 39,000 equivalent album units, 18,000 of that in traditional album sales.
This is actually the first time Queen has had two albums in the Top Ten at the same time.
