The Beatles are once again back in the Top Ten. The band’s 1968 self-titled release, better known as the “White Album,” was reissued earlier this month, and has debuted at six on the “Billboard” 200 Album chart this week. The reissue moved 63,000 equivalent album units, 52,000 of which were in traditional album sales. When it was first released, the album spent nine weeks at number one. But The Beatles aren’t the only classic rock band in the Top Ten. The soundtrack to Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” is once again on the chart this week, landing at seven.
The Queen biopic, “Bohemian Rhapsody,” is definitely a hit and has brought in so much money it is now the second-highest grossing biopic in US history. In its third week in release, the film, starring Rami Malek, has brought in another $15-mil to bring it’s total domestic box office to $127-million, pushing the Johnny Cash biopic “Walk the Line” into third place. Topping the list is still 2015’s N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton,” with $161-mil. And the film is even doing better overseas, where it has brought in $265-million, making its total world box office $384-mil.
