Home Theater Phenom: “Hamilton” Soundtrack Is Now Number 1 AND 2 on iTunes, With...

I told you already this week, the “Hamilton” soundtrack is number 1 on iTunes, where it’s selling downloads by the thousands.

“Hamilton” is actually number 1 AND number 2, as there two different versions, explicit and clean. The former is number 1.

But now six different tracks from the album are on the singles chart. This means sales are really rocking.

The top one right now is “You’ll Be Back,” featuring Jonathan Groff as the pouty King George, at number 11. It’s followed by “Helpless,” at number 36, sung by Tony winner Phillipa Soo as Eliza Schuyler. That version actually comes from the soundtrack album. But if they would release the version Soo did on Jimmy Fallon with the Roots and the cast, they’d have an even bigger hit.

Then comes the title song, at 41, “My Shot” at 44, “Satisfied” at 48, and “Wait for It” at 83.

I’m actually surprised “The Room Where it Happens” isn’t on the chart and higher than all of these. But with the DisneyPlus release of the show a massive hit, almost any of the tracks can jump in now.
