CHART STORY: BILLIE RETURNS TO #1

Teen phenom Billie Eilish has returned to #1 on the HITS Top 50, with WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? (Darkroom/Interscope), topping the chart in its fourth week with 86k. After debuting at #1 at the start of the month, WWAFAWDWG spent the last two weeks in the #2 position; all signs indicate she's just getting started. 

Parkwood/Columbia's Beyoncé lands two albums in the top 10. HOMECOMING: THE LIVE ALBUM jumps to #4 with 54k in its first full week of chart action, while 2016's Lemonade re-enters at #9 with a midweek surprise, making the album—previously only offered on Tidal or for purchase—available on all platforms. 

Khalid's Free Spirit (Right Hand/RCA) moves up to #2 in its third week as K-pop giants BTS take #3 with Map of the Soul: Persona (Bighit/Columbia), after a chart-topping bow last week. The BTS lads are tops in traditional sales by a mile.

Earning the biggest debut is Lizzo's Cuz I Love You (Nice Life/Atlantic) at #6, followed by indie parody-rockers Starbomb at #15 with The Tryforce. The Rolling Stones anthology Honk (UMe) and Cage The Elephant's Social Cues (RCA) are the other top 25 bows. 

Other notable leaps include Offset's Father of 4 (QC/Motown/Capitol) going from #39-34 and Lauren Daigle's Look Up, Child (Centricity/12Tone) moving #47-40. 

As for marketshare, UMG ranks first with 45%, followed by SME's 26%, WMG with 25% and the Indies with 4%.

Streeting this week are albums from RCA's P!nk, TDE/Interscope's ScHoolboy Q, Hillsong's Hillsong United, Island's James TW, Columbia's For The Throne compilation, S-Curve/BMG's AJR and Alamo/Interscope's blackbear.

Now if you'll excuse us, we need to grab our squares in the Game of Thrones pool. Does anyone else have Jorah Mormont dating a dragon?
