Sorry Rent, but I should tell you, your spot on the cast album bestseller list just got taken.

The original Broadway cast recording of Hamilton: An American Musical just overtook the 1996 release to claim sixth place on the list, selling another 7,000 copies this week to bring its total to 1.285 million according to Billboard

And Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda found the best way to celebrate. 

Miranda did a cute Q&A on Twitter where he only answered in Rent quotes, like the devilish musical aficionado he is.

He obviously knows his stuff…

This week was the 100th week in the top 200 for Hamilton, which now sits just behind the big five: The Phantom of the Opera (4.97 million), Wicked (2.7 million), Mamma Mia (1.72), Les Miserables (1.66) and Jersey Boys (1.44). Rent has sold 1.284 million.

Hamilton also claims another accolade; with 297,000 units shifted in 2017 it joins Dear Evan Hansen as one of only two cast albums to break 100,000 copies in a year. The last time two albums managed that was 2011, when The Book of Mormon and Wicked achieved the feat.

If you’ve already bought multiple copies of the album and can’t get enough Hamilton, Miranda announced the release of a special app earlier this month, full of news, info, stickers, and an AR HamCam. 

Glory, one blaze of glory, one blaze of glory, glory!
