"Bohemian Rhapsody" Movie Makes Music Sales Magic for Queen


Queen sold more albums in North America than any other artist in the first half of 2019, says a midyear report by Nielsen Music released on Thursday. The British rockers sold 731,000 albums and had more than 1.3 million digital downloads of their songs, more than any other artists during that time. The soundtrack to the musical Bohemian Rhapsody, which won four Oscars in February, was the best-selling rock title of the first six months of 2019, with Queen’s Greatest Hits 1 compilation coming in second.
