Created in 1956, the Official Charts have recorded all the sales in the UK ever since and the results for this year are in!

And no surprise here with Michael Jackson making the cut, not once but twice with “THRILLER” at the 6th place and “BAD” at the 9th place.

While “THRILLER” is still the biggest selling album of all time worldwide, this is the results for the UK alone.

With QUEEN’s “Greatest Hits” album being at the top position (especially with the new biopic movie “Bohemian Rhapsody” released few months ago and which boosted the music sales for the group).
