London, May 19: Swedish group ‘ABBA” have reportedly become the third band to sell 5 million copies of their album.
According to the Official Charts Company, which compiled the data, ABBA’s greatest hits album `Gold`that was released in October 1992, pushed through the barrier this week.
With that many copies sold, the group has now joined the ‘exclusive’ club with ‘The Beatles’ and ‘Queen’.
“This is another incredible record in a career of extraordinary achievements for Abba, who are unquestionably one of British music fans’ all-time favourite acts,” said Martin Talbot, Official Charts Company managing director.
“Over the past 20 years, one in every five households has bought a copy of Gold, which is a truly remarkable statistic,” he added. (ANI)
