Guess Who's Got The UK's Biggest-Selling Album Of ALL TIME
It's not Adele...
Queen’s Greatest Hits has kept its crown of Britain’s most popular album, according to The Official Charts Company, who is celebrating its 60th anniversary by unveiling the 60 biggest albums in Britain’s history. Other artists to feature on the list include Adele, Ed Sheeran and Oasis.
Queen will continue to sit atop the biggest-selling album throne, with their 1981 Greatest Hits collection having sold over six million copies in the UK.
Queen even managed to get another collection into the Top 10 (!!) with Greatest Hits II taking the Number 10 spot with almost 4 million albums sold to date.
Adele’s 2011 world-conquering 21, featuring breakthrough single ‘Someone Like You’, remains unmoved at Number 4. But even more remarkable is that Adele’s latest album, 25, has claimed the Number 27 spot in the all time list, despite being on sale for just seven months. GO ADELE!
