It’s a fourth week at the top for the Queen biopic soundtrack “Bohemian Rhapsody”, strengthened this week by the five Oscar nominations that the film received this past week.

The film has also so far picked up seven BAFTA film nominations (British Film Awards) and two for The Screen Actors Guild, plus the film has won two Golden Globe Awards earlier in January and also won lead actor Rami Malek an AACTA International Award too. The soundtracks fourth week at the top also gives the band Queen its overall sixth week at the top, moving the band from equal 117th to now equal 105th on the list for ‘Accumulated Weeks at No.1: Albums (1965 to 2019)’ alongside Phil Collins and Oasis (six accumulated weeks from two #1 albums). The band are also at No.3 with their “Greatest Hits” and again at No.5 with “The Platinum Collection” which is newly certified 2x▲Platinum in sales and the two collections log their 15th and 12th weeks within the Top 10 respectively (although their ‘Greatest Hits’ did also spend 14 weeks in the Top 10 back in 1981/82 also {I did include the albums three weeks in the Top 10 from 1991/92 in the current 15 weeks tally}).

The other musical that scored a massive amount of Oscar nominations this week was for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s “A Star is Born” whose soundtrack is on hold at No.2 again this week (16th week within the Top 2, No.1 in New Zealand for a 12th week too), while with the rest of the Top 7 on hold this week the next soundtrack to appear is for ‘The Greatest Showman’ at No.4 (54th week within the Top 10, 28th week at No.1 in England also), whose covers album “The Greatest Showman Reimagined” drops down two spots this week to No.10 (10th week within the Top 10).

“÷ (Divide)” by Ed Sheeran is on hold at No.6 again this week, logging its 93rd week within the Top 10, while another of 2018’s No.1 albums is the Post Malone set “Beerbongs & Bentleys”, which is stable at No.7 for its 28th week inside of the Top 10. The first Top 10 debut for 2019 occurs this week at No.8, and is the debut major-label album release for American singer Maggie Rogers (she had two independent releases in 2012 and 2014) titled “Heard it in a Past Life”, which features her current US Triple A (Adult Alternative Songs) chart topping track “Light On”, plus he previously released songs like “Alaska” and “On and Off”. The second entry to the Top 10 this week is due to the current national tour which kicked off last week in Perth for Phil Collins, as his collection “The Singles” (HP-6, peaked upon debut in late Nov. of 2016) bullets up thirty-nine places to land at No.9, becoming the albums second week within the Top 10 also.
