Best-selling albums in the United Kingdom

The list of best-selling albums in the UK is based on British Phonographic Industry (BPI) certifications, and sales figures published by Official Charts and Music Week. The BPI has been certifying music recordings since 1973. Initially certification levels were based on monetary revenue: Silver album- £ 75,000, Gold – £ 150,000, Platinum – £ 1,000,000. In 1979, BPI installed new ones, a silver album – 60,000 copies, gold – 100,000, platinum – 300,000. In 1979, BPI set new rules that still apply today: Silver album – 60,000 copies, Gold – 100,000, Platinum – 300,000. Multi-platinum awards (2x Platinum, 3x Platinum, etc.) were introduced only in February 1987. BPI awarded albums released before April 1973 retroactively in February 2016 for all previous sales.

The best-selling album in the UK is Queen’s Greatest Hits I which sold 6.300.000 copies ang became 21 times platinum. These figures also include the sales of Greatest Hits I as part of the double set Greatest Hits I and II and the triple set The Platinum Collection, also known as Greatest Hits I, II and III. The best-selling studio album in the UK is Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band by The Beatles with sales 5,340,000 copies. 21 by Adele is the best-selling album released in the 21st century, as well as the fourth album to cross the five million mark. Michael Jackson is the only foreign artist to make it to the top 10.
