LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--WaterTower Music is pleased to announce the December 7th release of two vinyl versions of the soundtrack to director Jon M. Chu’s global hit romantic comedy “Crazy Rich Asians,” based on the international bestselling book by Kevin Kwan. The film opened at number one and held the top spot at the U.S. box office for three consecutive weeks.
The soundtrack has seen its share of this success, fueled by the film’s poignant use of Kina Grannis’s haunting version of the classic “Can’t Help Falling In Love,” The Voice 2016 alumna Katherine Ho’s stunning rendition of “Yellow,” a cover of “Money (That’s What I Want)” by Cheryl K Feat. Awkwafina, and Miguel’s song “Vote,” which was recorded for the end title sequence of the film. Notable on the soundtrack is the inclusion of several songs performed in Mandarin Chinese.
This success has spurred the upcoming release of two vinyl versions of the album. A gold vinyl version will be available at all retailers, and an emerald green vinyl configuration will be available exclusively at Urban Outfitters.
