‘Hamilton’ Cast Album To Hit Top 10 On Album Chart After Tony Wins

(AllHipHop News) After winning 11 Tony Awards earlier this week, the smash Broadway musical Hamilton is on pace to make a mark on the Billboard 200 chart as well.

According to the publication, the Hip Hop production’s cast recording is expected to break into the Top 10 on the June 16 chart. The LP is closing in on 35,000 equivalent album units over that seven-day period.

Hamilton is likely to become the first cast recording to make the Billboard 200 Top 10 since The Book of Mormon in 2011. With 445,000 copies sold so far, the album is already the biggest selling cast album in over 10 years.

Fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda‘s retelling of the life of America’s first Treasury Secretary Alexander Hamilton can also be on the lookout for the forthcoming Hamilton mixtape.

Common, Chance The Rapper, Busta Rhymes, Queen Latifah, Usher, and others are set to be featured on the Questlove executive produced collection.

In addition, a PBS documentary about the musical titled Hamilton’s America will air this fall.
