In June 2021, the Californian rapper released his highly lauded sixth studio album, which went on to win Best Rap Album at the Grammy Awards 2022 earlier this month.

According to Stereogum, ‘Call Me…’ returned to the top of the Billboard 200 chart when Tyler released a vinyl version of the album. According to reports, he later sold 49,500 physical copies via his own online store.

The album has now had the ninth-largest sales week for a vinyl album since records started in 1991. ‘Call Me…’ was the highest vinyl sales week of any rap album, reclaiming the crown from Kid Cudi’s ‘Man On The Moon III: The Chosen,’ which sold 41,500 copies last December.

Taylor Swift’s ‘Red (Taylor’s Version),’ released in November, had the highest vinyl sales week overall.

Tyler’s latest full-length effort, according to Stereogum, is the fourth to reclaim the Billboard No. 1 position after a vinyl release. Swift’s ‘Evermore’ and ‘Fearless (Taylor’s Version)’, as well as Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Sour,’ are the other songs to do so.

Tyler, The Creator is scheduled to return to the UK/Ireland this summer for performances at Wireless, Longitude, and Parklife festivals. He’ll also be performing at the Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona in June.
