Queen and Adam Lambert have achieved their first number one album in 25 years.

 

Despite the loss of the group's iconic frontman Freddie Mercury in 1991, Queen have once again topped the official album sales charts after 25 years.

 

The iconic pop-rock group, Queen, have achieved their first chart-topping album in 25 years with their new frontman, Adam Lambert.

 

The group, which last reached the coveted number one spot on the Official Album charts in 1995, has experienced a revival as their charismatic lead singer carries on from the late Freddie Mercury.

 

They faced stiff competition from K-Pop girl group, Blackpink, as ‘The Album’ seriously challenged the rock and roll heavyweights in downloads and sales.

 

This is Queen’s 10th UK number one album and Lambert’s first.

 

Their last chart topping album, 'Made in Heaven', was the last piece to feature recordings of Mercury before his death in 1991 due to complications caused by AIDS.

 

Adam Lambert was the runner-up of the eighth season of American Idol as well as an accomplished pop star before joining the band in 2011.

 

Lambert said of the victory; "the fact that we can celebrate the iconic music of Queen all these years later is incredible."

 

While drummer, Roger Taylor, quipped "number one, my favourite number".

 

The band's re-entry into chart success follows renewed interest in the group demonstrated by the 2018 cinematic release of Bohemian Rhapsody.

 

As a new generation of fans discover Queen's music, it seems more than likely they will once again dominate the airwaves as we enter another decade.
