Queen’s Greatest Hits

Queen’s cornerstone “Greatest Hits” album is, once again, in the Top 10 of Billboard’s 200.

Released in 1981, the album has been on the charts for 412 weeks, finally landing at No. 8, up from its previous spot at No. 36. It previously peaked at No. 11 in 1992, the year following front man Freddie Mercury’s untimely death.

The now nine-time platinum album is also No. 1 on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums Chart with the second-largest sales week of 2020 for any vinyl release.

With monster hits from the iconic rock band like “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “We Will Rock You,” “We Are The Champions,” “Fat Bottomed Girls,” “Another One Bites the Dust” and so many more, it’s no wonder the album has stood the test of time.

Queen recently teamed up with both Target and Walmart to release brand new vinyl exclusives. Both are two-disc LPs, 180 gram.

Those opting for the Target exclusive will be treated to ruby blend marble vinyl while those who purchase from Walmart will receive red and white vinyl. The biggest fans of Queen might even be found purchasing both.

The band also recently released a live album with American Idol alum Adam Lambert at the helm. The album is titled “Queen + Adam Lambert Live Around The World,” and it landed at No. 1 on the UK’s official albums chart.

It was the first time a Queen album topped a chart since 1995’s “Made in Heaven.”

Queen is no stranger to the top ten, as this is their ninth album to land there. It will join the soundtrack for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Greatest Hits I, II & III: The Platinum Collection,” “Classic Queen,” “The Game,” “Jazz.” “News of the World,” “A Day at the Races” and “A Night at the Opera.”

Queen’s “Greatest Hits” is still the best-selling album of all-time in the UK.

Becky Hill – “Heaven On My Mind”

BECKY HILL RELEASES “HEAVEN ON MY MIND” WITH SIGALA WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR “HEAVEN ON MY MIND” HERE

Today, UK singer-songwriter Becky Hill releases her brand new single “Heaven On My Mind” in collaboration with Sigala. “Heaven On My Mind” is available HERE via Interscope Records.

“Heaven On My Mind,” which is written by Becky Hill and produced by Sigala, is the second single to be lifted from Becky’s upcoming debut album release. It sees Becky reunite with Sigala, who she collaborated with last year on the UK top 10 hit, “Wish You Well,” which she recently performed as part of a bedroom session medley for Radio 1’s Big Weekend 2020 and has now sold over 750,000 records in the UK alone.

“‘Heaven On My Mind’ has had a different journey and creative process from my other songs I’ve released,” says Becky. “When Sigala first sent me ideas for the song, it was during a dark time for me last year, and so it wasn’t a track that I would have ever started writing myself – it was so pure and carefree… But that actually made me want to work on it and make it as personal as possible and release it. And after having big success with Sigala on our track ‘Wish you Well,’ I had such a high respect and love for him and was over the moon he wanted to collaborate with me again!

The second single to be lifted from Becky’s forthcoming debut album, it follows the release of “Better off Without You” (ft Shift K3Y), which, after garnering Becky Hill’s highest-charting position for a solo single release, spending 5 weeks in the Top 20 of the UK Official Singles chart, scoring a top 5 on the UK Radio airplay chart and on iTunes, hitting no. 1 on the Official Trending Chart and accumulating over 65 million streams to date.

A summer anthem in the making, “Heaven On My Mind,” is set to cement Becky’s reputation as one of Britain’s most in-demand musical exports of the moment. With an irrefutable aptitude for writing chart smashing pop songs and an impressive string of hits to her name, Becky has now garnered over 1.5 billion combined streams and 18 million + monthly listeners on Spotify after being crowned the 2nd most-streamed British Female Artist on Spotify UK in 2019.
