Mac Miller‘s 2014 mixtape Faces has set a brand new record on Billboard’s Vinyl Albums chart.

According to reports, the project, which just hit streaming services on October 15, sold 34,000 copies in the U.S., with 2,000 of that number coming from digital album downloads and 32,000 from vinyl LP sales — the latter of which broke the record for the largest sales week on vinyl for an R&B/hip-hop record since sales were tracked in 1991.

Billboard adds that Prince’s Welcome 2 America previously held the record with 22,000 units, while Faces upstaged Miller’s own Circles for largest sales week for a rap album on vinyl.

Faces recently made its Billboard 200 debut at No. 3, earning 67,000 equivalent album units including 34,000 in album sales, 33,000 in streaming equivalent album units and the rest in track equivalent album units.

Elsewhere in music, take a preview of JAY-Z, Jadakiss and Conway The Machine’s “King Kong Riddim.”
