The soundtrack to the Queen film, Bohemian Rhapsody, has benefited from the movie being a top draw at the box office. It jumped from number-25 to three on the Billboard 200 in the week since the movie's release with 59,000 units sold. This is Queen’s highest-charting album since 1980, when The Game spent five weeks at number-one.
Also benefiting from the film is Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection, which goes from 194 up to nine with 39,000 units sold. And Greatest Hits goes from 71 up to 48.
This is the first time Queen have two albums in the Top 10 and it’s their first visit there since Classic Queen in 1992, and that was due to the success of the movie Wayne’s World, which featured “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
