A Billie Eilish Roundtable, on the Bill(ie)board Chart Beat Podcast

Billie Eilish

Discussing the alt/pop artist ahead of her likely No. 1 debut on the Bill(ie)board 200.

Welcome to the Billboard Chart Beat Podcast, where each week co-hosts Gary Trust and Trevor Anderson, from the Billboard charts department, discuss why what's on the charts … is on the charts, while also looking at current chart action in a historical context for even greater insights.

This week, we recap Ariana Grande's new career-best eight-week reign on the Billboard Hot 100 with "7 Rings," plus chart moves for Post Malone (whose "Wow." rises to No. 2 on the Hot 100), Lady Gaga, Mabel and even legendary classical composer Johann Sebastian Bach.

Plus, Billboard (Billieboard?) editors Lyndsey Havens and Andrew Unterberger join Gary and Trevor to chat about Billie Eilish, whose debut LP, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, is primed to launch at No. 1 on the Bill(ie)board 200 chart with perhaps over 275,000 equivalent album units, marking the second-biggest week of 2019, after Grande's start with Thank U, Next (360,000, according to Nielsen Music).
