South Korea Monthly Albums (December)

1 Bohemian Rhapsody (20,803 copies sold)
2 Platinum Collection (6,730)
5 Greatest Hits (1,622)
17 Greatest Hits II (317)
32 Live At The Rainbow (147)
34 A Night At The Odeon (142)
37 Messenger Of The Gods: The Singles Collection (135)
88 On Air (48)
There are quite a few songs on that list that aren't in the film, amazing!

South Korea Annual Albums

1 Bohemian Rhapsody (40,849)
2 Platinum Collection (11,805)
14 Greatest Hits (2,747)
69 Greatest Hits II (791)

But it is the streaming segment where the best news are coming from, once again:

South Korea Monthly Digital Songs (December)

3 Bohemian Rhapsody
5 Bohemian Rhapsody
10 I Was Born To Love You
11 Somebody To Love
13 Radio GaGa
18 Love Of My Life
19 Bohemian Rhapsody
20 We Will Rock You
21 Bohemian Rhapsody
26 We Are The Champions
27 Radio GaGa
28 Killer Queen
35 Another One Bites The Dust
36 We Will Rock You
37 We Are The Champions
38 Love Of My Life
45 Don't Stop Me Now
56 I Want To Break Free
62 Somebody To Love
64 Under Pressure
67 Too Much Love Will Kill You
68 Ay-Oh
69 Bohemian Rhapsody
72 I Want To Break Free
75 Hammer To Fall
78 Crazy Little Thing Called Love
82 Another One Bites The Dust
84 Keep Yourself Alive
92 Under Pressure
95 Killer Queen
99 The Show Must Go On
100 Doing All Right (…Revisited)

Against what I thought, digital and streaming sales continued to be strong in December. Not only that: they actually surpassed the amount achieved in November, with 32 songs in the Top 100 which accumulated more than 500 million downloads and streams, so I estimate they must have achieved 550 to 600 million counting their whole catalogue, hard to estimate.

This would be the equivalent of some 375,000 albums in December. Previous amount was estimated at 325,000 for November.

Impressive success in this Asian country.

Amazing, especially since 2 of these songs aren't even in the film!

How are the Greatest Hits album counted in the long run btw.? Does each Platinum Collection count as one GH album each, or does it count as only one collection? If each GH album one is counted, the total numbers must have risen enormously lately...

Most selling albums in Mexico for the year 2018:

#10 Bohemian Rhapsody Soundtrack
#14 Greatest Hits
#81 Greatest Hits II

We have three album into the Top-100: I think it's a great result. No certification for Bohemian Rhapsody Soundtrack is available, though.


This week, The Platinum Colletcion has been #1 both in Portugal and in France.

In Australia, where we have three Queen's album into the Top-5, Bohemian Rhapsody is #1, Greatest Hits is #3 and The Platinum Collection is #5. The Platinum Collection has also received the second Platinum Award for having sold 140,000 copies.

In New Zealand, The Bohemian Rhapsody Soundtrack has been certified Platinum (15,000 copies).

In Italy, where we have 2 albums into the Top-5, Bohemian Rhapsody is #3 and The Platinum Collection is #4.
Another new certification for the singles: Who Wants To Live Forever has been certified Gold for 25,000 copies + streamings. Since 2009 to date, the total of the certifications in Italy is of 280,000 copies for the albums and of 600,000 for the singles.
