Call Me If You Get Lost has leapfrogged Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon III to become the biggest-selling rap album on vinyl since figures began.
Having sold an approximate 49,500 vinyl copies of his critically acclaimed sixth studio album, as per Stereogum, Call Me If You Get Lost also returned to the top of the Billboard 200 – an impressive feat considering it was released in June last year.
It’s not the only recent, and resurfaced, success the LP has had; it also bagged the Best Rap Album at the Grammys earlier this month.
The album now has the ninth-largest sales week for a vinyl album since 1991, when Luminate, the data company for Billboard, first started tracking such figures.
Taylor Swift’s own re-recorded version of Red, released last November, has the largest sales week in the format overall. Swift’s Evermore album and her re-recorded version of Fearless, along with Call Me If You Get Lost and Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour, are the only four albums to reclaim a Number 1 spot on Billboard following a vinyl release.
There’s more reasons for Tyler to celebrate. His recent 32-city tour for his most recent Grammy-winning album became the highest-earning hip hop tour of the post-pandemic era, raking in £25.6 million ($32.6 million).
And you can catch him whilst he’s in a no doubt buoyant mood this summer, with festival appearances set for Parklife, Wireless and Longitude.
