Tyler, the Creator‘s Call Me If You Get Lost vaulted 76-1 to reclaim the top spot on Billboard‘s Top Album Sales chart dated September 9 following a new vinyl release of the record.
With the latest surge, the album is at the top spot for the third time in as many years, after having hit No. 1 on the chart in 2022 and 2021.
The album’s return to the top spot is due largely to the release of the first vinyl pressing of the deluxe edition of the album dubbed Call Me If You Get Lost: The Estate Sale, on August 25.
The deluxe edition first arrived via streamers and digital retailers in March 2023. The triple-LP set was pressed on blue-colored vinyl.
In the tracking week ending August 31, all retail versions of the album combined – old and new – sold just over 29,000 copies (up 1,397%), according to Luminate. In total in the U.S. through the week ending Aug. 31, Call Me If You Get Lost sold 328,000 copies on vinyl across its multiple vinyl editions.
Call Me If You Get Lost previously hit No. 1 for one week in 2022 (April 30) after the original album’s release on vinyl and for one week in 2021 (July 10).
