The debut album for Billie Eilish lands at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart, while she also debuts at No.1 on the singles chart with “Bad Guy”, landing six Top 10 berths this week and she has sixteen songs within the Top 100, how’s that for a 17-year-old!!

“Bad Guy” for Billie Eilish becomes the 1085th No.1 song in Australia (1940 to 2019), the 520th for ARIA (1983 to 2019), the 121st to debut at No.1 (the last was ‘7 Rings’ for Ariana Grande on the 28th of January), and the 35th No.1 for the record label Interscope (the last was a returning “Shallow” in early March for Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper).

This new No.1 song becomes only the second with the word ‘Bad’ in its title to appear at the top here, the other being Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” featuring Kendrick Lamar (3 weeks from 1st of June, 2015), while for the word ‘Guy’ this is the fifth, the last one being last century when Offspring scored their only chart topper here with “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)” (6 weeks from 7th of Dec, 1998). There’s also been “Jealous Guy” by Roxy Music (4 weeks from 11th of May, 1981), “My Guy” for Mary Wells (2 weeks from 13th of June, 1964) and the Herb Alpert song “This Guy’s in Love with You” (2 weeks from 6th of July, 1968).

Billie Eilish now becomes the 99th American Solo Female artist to hit No.1 in Australia, while Billie also becomes the 414th chart-topping American artist, and the song “Bad Guy” is the 698th No.1 song sung by an American performer (solo, duo or group). Plus Billie also continues the trend of ONLY American artists hitting No.1 here this year, with all five of this years top sellers being by American acts, and as Billie is at the top of both the singles and albums chart she also becomes 131st act to achieve this feat and the second for 2019 as Ariana Grande did it for two weeks from mid-February, PLUS Billie is now the youngest person to achieve this feat of topping both charts, as at the age of 17 she surpasses the 21.5 years old Adele was when she did it back in June of 2011.

Billie Eilish’s “Bad Guy” also debuted at the top in New Zealand and landed at No.2 in both England and Ireland, while she also places five further songs within the Top 10 this week, her albums first four releases all rise back up, with three of them landing within the Top 10, the first is “Bury a Friend” which jumps up ten places to its former peak of No.3 for a sixth week within the ten, then the former No.12 song “Wish You Were Gay” jumps up sixteen spots to score a new peak of No.5, plus her former No.10 song “When the Party’s Over” rebounds a massive thirty-three places to land at a new peak of No.7. Ms. Eilish also debuts within the Top 10 with two new songs too, coming in at No.8 is “All the Good Girls Go to Hell”, followed two places lower at No.10 with her sixth and final Top 10 entry for this week “Xanny”, which beats the February set record of three within the ten by Ariana Grande and also beats the previous record for a female artists of four, set by Karise Eden set in late June of 2012.

Four songs remain from last weeks Top 10 with the most recent No.1 for The Jonas Brothers down one place to No.2 after three weeks at the top, the song finally climbing to No.1 on the digital charts this week, while last weeks re-climber to No.2 and “Wow” by Post Malone is down two to No.4 followed by his other current Top 10 entry “Sunflower” with Swae Lee, which falls three spots to No.6 and logs a 23rd week within the Top 10 (equal third longest Top 10 run in Australian Chart History) alongside “Closer” for The Chainsmokers and Halsey (2016-17) and most recently “Shotgun” for George Ezra (2018-19). After climbing to his new peak of No.5 last week the Billie Eilish influx pushes down Dominic Fike four places to land at No.9 with his first entry “3 Nights”.

* The former No.47 song for Billie Eilish and “You Should See Me in a Crown” returns to the chart at a far higher peak of No.16 this week, while her older entries to rise include “Ocean Eyes” (88 to 78) and “Bellyache” (84 to 83).
