Billie Eilish is Happier Than Ever on her latest No. 1 album — but is the Billboard 200 top three younger than ever?
Nineteen-year-old Eilish leads the way, debuting at the top of the Billboard 200 albums chart this week with Happier Than Ever, and she’s followed by two fellow teenagers: 17-year-old The Kid LAROI at No. 2 with F*ck Love and 18-year-old Olivia Rodrigo at No. 3 with Sour.
So has that ever happened before? On the new Billboard Pop Shop Podcast, Keith takes a trip down memory lane to see if there’s ever been another trio of teenagers in the top three before. Listen to the new episode to hear his findings:
