Recently, the vinyl version of Kid Cudi’s Man On The Moon III: The Chosen broke two US chart records. The rapper’s seventh studio LP was originally released on December 11, 2020 as a digital album and via streaming services. Its CD edition arrived on June 18, 2021.

The album – which features the likes of Skepta, Pop Smoke, Phoebe Bridgers and Trippie Redd – was released on vinyl for the first time on December 17, 2021. This helped the album score a new high on the US album chart.

Man On The Moon III: The Chosen  re-entered the Billboard chart at Np.4, surpassing its previous peak of Number 10. In the week beginning December 17, the album sold 42,000 copies, 41,500 of which were on vinyl. According to Chart Data, this means the album has broken the record for biggest vinyl sales week for both a male artist and a rap album in Nielsen history.

Cudi responded to the news on Twitter, first writing, “Holy s_t whats happening”, in response to the album landing at Number Four on the charts. When he found out he had broken a chart record, he tweeted: “Holy F_K!!!”

Man On The Moon III: The Chosen has now sold 81,000 copies since its original release, across all available retail formats (physical and digital combined), in the US.

In a four-star review of the album, NME called Man On The Moon III: The Chosen a “cinematic masterstroke that electrifies the senses at every turn”.
