Mac Miller Is Re-Releasing “Best Day Ever” as an Album
Mac Miller fans, rejoice: you're getting another Best Day Ever.
On June 3, Rostrum Records is re-releasing Mac Miller's 2011 mixtape Best Day Ever as a remastered album on vinyl, CD and all commercial download and streaming services. The announcement comes on the fifth anniversary of the project's original release. You can now pre-order the deluxe LP and CD at Amazon.
Best Day Ever, the follow-up to Mac's 2010 breakout mixtape, K.I.D.S., includes 16 tracks with features from Phonte and Wiz Khalifa and beats from Just Blaze, Chuck Inglish, ID Labs and more. Rostrum Records calls the project Mac's "seminal album," setting up the subsequent success of his debut commercial album Blue Slide Park, which charted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 in its first week of release.
Best Day Ever's most popular track, "Donald Trump," has sold over 1.25 million downloads and racked up more than 100 million YouTube views. Even Trump himself took notice of Mac's feat. The project's title track "Best Day Ever" is another standout, and the music video is even better – it features a young Mac spitting some hilarious bars for the clip's first minute or so.
Mac has only gotten better since Best Day Ever dropped five years ago. Projects including Watching Movies With The Sound Off, Faces and GO:OD AM are sonic proof of just how much the Pittsburgh native has grown both as an artist and as a person. If you're a Mac fan, now is the time to reflect a little by revisiting a past gem in Best Day Ever.
