A musician on TikTok recently went viral after re-releasing their debut album on Game Boy Advance cartridges, and yes, you can buy a copy.

Musical artists often re-release their older projects on different mediums for fans to grow their collections. We’ve seen artists release albums on 12-inch vinyl records or outdated cassette tapes just for the novelty of having a unique piece of memorabilia.

This can sometimes be taken to the extreme when artists lock their music behind a specific platform. For example, country music artist Garth Brooks signed a multi-year exclusive deal with Wal-Mart making it the only way for fans to enjoy his music. Also, Kanye West recently released Donda 2 on his Stem Player and stated it won’t be made available anywhere else.

The album also features visuals for each song including the official music videos for their respective tracks. And the limited run is available to purchase right now.
