Billie Eilish Returns to No. 1 In Australia After Grammys, Hottest 100 Win

Billie Eilish’s blockbuster debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go (Interscope/Universal) returns to the top of Australia’s national albums chart after her recent awards glory, while The Weeknd enters a second week at No. 1 on the national singles chart with “Blinding Lights” (Republic/Universal). 

Eilish’s chart spike is no fluke. It’s fueled by the teen singer’s big night at the Jan. 26 Grammy Awards, where she cleaned up with five trophies, including album of the year, and her former No. 1 hit “Bad Guy” taking out the triple j Hottest 100, a national poll on which a record 3.2-million votes were cast.    

When We All Fall Asleep logged seven non-consecutive weeks at the summit in 2019 and was No. 1 on the 2019 ARIA End Of Year Albums Chart. 

This week, Eilish’s “Bad Guy” – which won record of the year and song of the year at the Grammys — flies 18 places up the ARIA Singles Chart to No. 3. Her latest single “everything i wanted” improves 20-11 on the singles tally, and her Dont Smile At Me EP rises 25-18 on the albums survey. 


Eminem’s Music To Be Murdered By (Intesrcope/Universal) dips 1-2, while Harry Styles’ sophomore album Fine Line (Columbia/Sony) is up 4-3, Elton John’s career retrospective Diamonds (Universal) climbs 6-4 and Halsey’s Manic (Capitol/EMI) slips 2-5. 

British electro-pop veterans Pet Shop Boys land the week’s highest new entry with Hotspot (Inertia), their 14th studio set. It’s new at No. 8 on the national albums chart and No. 1 on this week’s ARIA Vinyl Albums Chart.

Triple J’s Hottest 100 countdown on Jan. 25 gives an immediate lift to a handful of featured artists. Melbourne artist G Flip scored four entries in the poll and she sees her debut album About Us (Future Classic) rise 16 places to No. 23 on the weekly chart, while ARIA Award-nominated indigenous artist Thelma Plum sees her debut Better In Blak (Warner) reenter the top 50 at No. 31, after snagging three spots on triple j’s annual countdown. 


Tyler, The Creator’s ?Igor (Columbia/Sony), the Grammy-winner for best rap album, returns to the chart at No. 40. The U.S. rapper also appeared twice on the Hottest 100.

With The Weeknd holding top spot on the ARIA Singles Chart for a second week, Tones And I’s “Dance Monkey” hits its 30th week in the top 10, according to ARIA. “Dance Monkey” (Bad Batch/Sony) spent 24 non-consecutive weeks at No. 1, appeared at No. 4 on the triple j Hottest 100 and it recently passed the one-billion plays milestone on Spotify. “Dance Monkey” is eight-times platinum in Australia, and it holds at No. 2 on the ARIA chart.
