The original soundtracks (OSTs) of run-and-gun video game Cuphead has made it to the top spot of Billboard, a media brand that lists down popular songs on a weekly basis.
For the second week of September 2019, the album entitled “Selected Tunes from Studio MDHR’s Cuphead” became number one on the Billboard Jazz Album charts. It dethroned Canadian singer Michael Bublé’s Love album down to the second spot, which had an impressive 42-week record on the charts.
This was quite a coup for Cuphead, as this is the first time a video game soundtrack has reached the number one spot on the Jazz Album charts.
The 2-vinyl format contains 13 tracks for the first disc and 11 tracks for the second. It was composed by Kristofer Maddigan with performance by The Cuphead Jazz Orchestra.
This isn’t the first time the music of Cuphead took the spotlight, as the soundtrack already won the BAFTA Games Award for Music back in 2018.
