The soundtrack to the latest James Bond film, No Time to Die, makes a splash on Billboard’s charts, as the set debuts at No. 1 on both the overall Classical Albums chart and the Classical Crossover Albums tally, as well as starting at No. 7 on the Soundtracks chart (all dated Oct. 16). Plus, Billie Eilish’s title track debuts on the Billboard Global Excluding U.S. chart.
The No Time to Die album earned 5,000 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending Oct. 7, according to MRC Data. Of that sum, traditional album sales comprise nearly 4,000.
The companion album to the film of the same name was released on Oct. 1, one week before the movie arrived in U.S. and Canadian movie theaters. (The film bowed in many territories on Sept. 30, including the United Kingdom.) No Time to Die was originally slated to premiere in the spring of 2020, but its release was delayed following the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.
