Australian Charts: Billie Eilish “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” is No 1

The debut album and second entry for US teenager Billie Eilish called “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” debuts at the top of ARIA Albums Chart this week, plus it also tops the U.K. and New Zealand charts too.

“When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” becomes the 845th No.1 Album in Australia (1965 to 2019), the 696th for ARIA (1983 to 2019), the 485th album to debut at No.1 and also the 31st for her record label Interscope who last topped the chart with the Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper soundtrack for “A Star is Born” for eleven broken weeks (late Oct to the end of Dec 2018 and one more again in Feb 2019), finally this is the seventh No.1 album for 2019 too.

This is her second Top 10 album as her EP “Don’t Smile at Me” hit No.6 in February, and as I mentioned in the singles section, the topping of both charts by Billie Eilish makes it the 131st time that the top of the albums and singles charts have had a matching No.1 artist, with Ariana Grande the last to do so back in mid February of this year for two weeks, while Billie is now the youngest act to do this, and as this is her debut album the last time that an artists’ first release topped both charts was back in early February of 2008 for Leona Lewis with “Spirit” and her song “Bleeding Love” (1 week on 4-Feb, 2008).

As for youngest acts at No.1 that could go to either Justin Bieber (just turned 16 years old), Lorde (16 year old almost 17), Silverchair (all three members were either 15 or 16 when ‘Frogstomp’ went to No.1 in April of 1995), Birdy (16 at the time) and the youngest was Miley Cyrus who was 15 when ‘Breakout’ went to No.1 in September of 2008.

Of the words in the new No.1 albums’ title we have had ‘When’ three previous times, ‘Sleep” twice before, ‘Where’ once before and no ‘Fall’ but a “Fallen” and “Falling”. The new No.1 album also becomes the 297th chart topper for an American performer (male, female, solo, duo or group) and the 128th by a Female artist (local or overseas), plus Billie Eilish is also the 154th American Performer to hit the top here (solo, duo or group) and also the 36th Solo American Female singer to make it to No.1 here since the first was Janis Joplin in May of 1971.

Last week The Hilltop Hoods released two limited edition colored vinyl editions of their current album “The Great Expanse”, which this week helps it to fly back up six places to No.2, and the album is newly certified as Gold (●) in sales, while last weeks No.1 album for Dean Lewis and “A Place We Knew” drops down two places this week to No.3 followed by another of this years No.1 albums in “thank u, next” for Arian Grande, also dropping two spots to No.4, which means this is the first time this year that a Queen album or soundtrack has NOT appeared in the Top 4!!

Queen’s highest placed album this week is their “Greatest Hits” set dropping two spots to No.5, while they are also within the Top 10 with their biopic soundtrack “Bohemian Rhapsody” falling three places to No.7 and the bands also move down three places to No.9 with their other Top 10 entry in “The Platinum Collection”, while in-between those two Queen sets is the aforementioned soundtrack to “A Star is Born”, dropping three spots to No.8.

There are two further Top 10 debuts this week, coming in at No.6 is the second album for US metalcore band I Prevail called “Trauma”, and it also becomes the bands highest charted album here in Australia, beating the No.8 peak of the first set “Lifelines” from late October of 2016. Devin Townsend and his 18th album “Empath” comes in at No.10, while his late September 2016 set “Transcendence” also came at No.10, giving him now his second Top 10 and fourth Top 100 entry in Australia.
