Bohemian Rhapsody: Queen’s Iconic Song is the World Most Streamed

Universal Music Group announced that “Bohemian Rhapsody,” the iconic single by British rock legends, Queen, became the world’s most-streamed song from the 20th Century, as well as the most-streamed Classic Rock song of all time.

Today, December 10, the original song and official video for “Bohemian Rhapsody,” taken from the group’s 1975 album “A Night at the Opera,” surpassed 1.6 billion streams globally across all major streaming services.

The feature film Bohemian Rhapsody, a biopic of the group and lead singer Freddie Mercury, has played a crucial role in that achievement, due to its global commercial appeal (over 500 million).

Brian May, the guitarist and founding member of Queen said, “So the River of Rock Music has metamorphosed into streams! Very happy that our music is still flowing to the max!”
