In 1985, Wham! began its three weeks at the number one spot on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart. It was led with “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go,” the first single off the album to reach #1 on the Hot 100 Singles Chart.

“Careless Whisper” and “Everything She Wants” also became chart toppers from Make It Big.

The RIAA has certified the album 6x Platinum, with 6 million copies sold in the U.S.
