Martin Kielty explained that, “The LP sold 59,000 units last week, securing the band’s biggest impact since 1980’s The Game – which included the hits “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” – spent five weeks at No. 1. In addition, their Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection jumped from No. 194 to No. 9, marking the first time Queen have ever had two albums in the top 10.
