HAMILTON Cast Recording Now #1 on iTunes; New Leslie Odom Jr. Album at #10

On Sunday night, the Broadway hip-hop sensation Hamilton received 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical of the year. Now, according to Showbiz411, the show's original cast recording is number 1 on both iTunes and Amazon.com and is setting the record for best selling ever Broadway show CD and download.

In addition, the title track has already been streamed over 10 million times on Spotify. The site reports that unofficially, the number of times the top 10 HAMILTON tracks have been streamed is approaching 75 million times.

In other HAMILTON related music news, Tony Award winner Leslie Odom Jr.'s self titled album on S-Curve Records has risen to number 10 on iTunes where it's exclusive until June 24th. On Amazon, where the physical CD can be purchased on the 24th, the album is currently number 30 from pre-orders alone.

As BWW reported yesterday, industry forecasters predict that the show's official cast recording will reach the top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums, and may earn as much as 35,000 equivalent album units in the week ending June 16.

Currently, the original Hamilton Broadway cast recording has sold a total of 445,000 copies in the U.S., through the week ending June 9, according to Nielsen Music. The two-disc set was released on September 25, 2015 and has already set multiple records, placing among the top 20 best-selling cast albums of the last 25 years and the biggest selling cast album in over 10 years. In addition, the album, which debuted at No. 12 on the Billboard 200, was the highest debut for a cast album since 1961 and has enjoyed a spot in the top 20 for the last 13 weeks. In May, the recording was officially platinum certified, meaning it had sold in excess of one million units.
