Queen's Albums Dominate Billboard 200

Meanwhile, Metro Boomin earns his first No. 1 album as his latest effort, 'Not All Heroes Wear Capes', arrives atop the chart.

AceShowbiz - With the success of Queen's biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody", it's only natural for people to buy the band's albums. They have two albums vaulting to the top ten of this week's Billboard 200 chart, "Bohemian Rhapsody" soundtrack album as well as "Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection".

The soundtrack album to the hit biopic surges from No. 25 to No. 3 after selling 59,000 units in the week ending November 8, according to Nielsen Music. It marks the British band's highest-charting album in 38 years. They previously spent five weeks atop the chart in 1980 with "The Game", which includes two Hot 100 No. 1 singles "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love".

On the other hand, "Greatest Hits I II & III: The Platinum Collection" vaults more than 180 spots to No. 9 with 39,000 units. That means, the 51-track record reached a new peak as they previously topped out at No. 48 in 2002. With two albums charting in the top ten of this week's chart, it marks their first time having a pair of albums in the top ten at the same time.

Elsewhere in the chart, Metro Boomin earns his first No. 1 album as his surprise set "Not All Heroes Wear Capes" debuts atop Billboard 200 with 99,000 units, including 5,000 in traditional album sales. Trailing behind the guest-laden album is "A Star Is Born" soundtrack album which is a non-mover at No. 2 with 79,000 units.

Takeoff lands his first top 10 album with "The Last Rocket", that enters at No. 4 with 49,000 units. He additionally becomes the last Migos member to chart on the Billboard 200 apart from the group, following Quavo (with his "Quavo Huncho" peaking at No. 2 in October) and Offset (with his collaborative album "Without Warning" peaking at No. 4 last year.)

Drake's "Scorpion" dips to No. 5 with 45,000 units, taking over Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V" spot. The latter set descends one spot to No. 6 with 43,000 units. Lil Baby and Gunna's joint album "Drip Harder" also slips one spot to No. 7 with 42,000 units. Meanwhile, Travis Scott (II)'s "Astroworld" climbs to No. 8 with 40,000.
