For the sixth week this year the Billie Eilish debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” is the No.1 selling album in Australia, attaining an overall fifth run at the top of the ARIA Albums Chart.

“When We All Fall Asleep…” also returns to the top in New Zealand (8th week) and Canada (6th week) and here it becomes the longest running No.1 album for 2019 (so far), surpassing the five weeks that Ariana Grande’s “thank u, next” achieved in February and March, plus Billie’s set is also the longest running No.1 album since the soundtrack for “A Star is Born” logged its eleventh and final week at the top in February of this year (when it returned after it’s Oscar wins).

After a single week at No.1 the Bruce Springsteen set “Western Stars” is down a place to No.2, while Elton John’s collection “Diamonds” is back up to its former peak of No.3 for a second week there, plus the album is the only newly certified set within the Top 100, now certified Gold (●) in sales, while his biopic soundtrack departs the Top 10 this week.

Pink is back up one spot to No.4 with her “Hurts 2B Human” set, thanks to the recent vinyl release of the album, while Jimmy Barnes’ latest album “My Criminal Record” is stable at No.6, last weeks No.2 debut for Madonna and “Madame X” drops down six places to No.8, while it debuted at the top in the U.S.A. this week. Khalid’s “Free Spirit” set drops back down two places to No.9, and rising back up five places to No.10 is the soundtrack for Queen’s biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ for an overall 30th week within the Top 10, helped by the Queen and Adam Lambert special screened on Tuesday night here.

Two new entries debut within the Top 10 this week, the highest of which is new at No.5, the first EP for the current No.1 singles chart holder Lil’ Nas X called “7”, named because there are seven different songs on the set (8 in total, as two of them are versions of his current No.1 song “Old Town Road” {regular version and Billy Ray Cyrus remixed}).
