"While classic rock acts often struggle to adapt to modern music consumption, Queen has evolved into a streaming powerhouse. “Whether it’s [through] sporting events or a song placement in television or film, Queen songs are such a part of everyday culture,” says Allison Hagendorf, Spotify’s global head of rock. “Even before the trailer came out, Queen held our spot for top catalog artist. They’re currently in our top 10 list of artists globally, a total anomaly for a catalog artist.” Spotify’s global top 200 songs chart (for the week ending April 25) features four Queen songs -- more than streaming titans Halsey and Juice WRLD, and easily more than any other legacy act. Leading the pack, of course, is “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which has topped 7 million cross-platform U.S. streams every week since the film’s Nov. 3 release. It re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 for three weeks last fall, peaking at No. 33 on the chart dated Nov. 17."

"While Wayne’s World gave the song a majestic renaissance, she says, streaming is endearing it to yet another untapped audience: “What’s getting me so excited [about Queen’s latest surge] is that it’s not only baby boomers and Gen X, but millennials.”"

^they have almost 900mill streams on Spotify for Bohemian Rhapsody alone, when other acts struggle to have this much streams for their whole catalogue

Well, nobody buys physical records anymore (except maybe vinyls), streaming now is the main music consumption method.
