U.K. CHARTS: BILLIE'S BIG BOW
8/6/21

Billie Eilish has earned her second #1 on the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart as Happier Than Ever (Polydor) registered 39k sales. Over on singles, Ed Sheeran remains on top for a sixth week.

Of Happier Than Ever’s total sales, 61% were physical and 33% came from streams. Eilish is the first international female artist to reach #1 with her first two albums in seven years; Lana Del Rey was the last to do so in 2014.

The most-streamed release this week is Dave’s We’re All Alone in This Together (NBR), which drops one place to #2, and Olivia Rodrigo’s SOUR (Polydor) continues to hold at #3.

The first posthumous studio album of unreleased material from Prince since his death in 2016, Welcome 2 America (Legacy), lands at #5.

Adolescence (Island) from London rapper Unknown T is new at #8, while Southampton rock band Creeper enter at #13 with its new EP, American Noir (Roadrunner).

On the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart, Sheeran’s “Bad Habits” (Atlantic) stays at #1 with 82k sales, including 9.4m streams.

“Stay” (RCA) by The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber returns to its previous peak at #2, while “Black Magic” (3 Beat) by Jonasu rises to a new high at #3.

Eilish scores the highest new entry of the week with “Happier Than Ever” at #6, which joins two other tracks from her new album in today’s Top 40: “Getting Older” is #28 and “Oxytocin” is #32.

Becky Hill & David Guetta’s “Remember” (Polydor) is up three to #7 and further down, Doja Cat’s “Need To Know” (Ministry of Sound) jumps seven to #22.
