According to Universal Music Group, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, the iconic single by British rock legends Queen, has not only become the most-streamed song from the 20th Century but has also become the most-streamed Classic Rock song of all time.
The original song and official video for “Bohemian Rhapsody” taken from Queen’s seminal 1975 album A Night At The Opera has now surpassed 1.6 billion streams globally across all major streaming services.
The song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame back in 2004 with Freddie Mercury’s vocal performance named by Rolling Stone magazine as the best in rock history. The iconic song’s fame has received a boost by the success of the biographical film Bohemian Rhapsody as well, which has become the highest grossing music biopic of all time.
Brian May, Queen’s guitarist, and the founding member said, “So the River of Rock Music has metamorphosed into streams! Very happy that our music is still flowing to the max!”
Sir Lucian Grainge, Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Group, said, “’Bohemian Rhapsody’ is one of the greatest songs by one of the greatest bands in history. We are so proud to represent Queen and are thrilled to see the song still inspiring new fans around the world more than four decades after its release.
