Billie Eilish really should be happier than ever. The U.S. teen phenomenon has her second Australian albums chart crown, as Happier Than Ever debuts at No. 1 on the ARIA chart.
With her sophomore set, Eilish goes two-for-two. Her 2019 debut When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go (Interscope/Universal) logged eight weeks atop the ARIA Albums Chart and it finished the year as the country’s best-selling LP.
Eilish’s impact is felt on both main charts. Five tracks from Happier Than Ever debut on the ARIA Singles Chart this week, led by the title track, new at No. 6.
Further down the albums tally, the latest Over You edition of The Kid Laroi’s F*ck Love (Columbia/Sony) sees the mixtape hold at No. 3, while Prince makes his first Top 10 appearance with a studio album in almost a quarter century, with the posthumous release Welcome 2 America (Legacy/Sony). Recorded in 2010, the album bows at No. 5.
The last Prince studio effort to enter the Top 10 was 1996’s Emancipation, which peaked at No. 8. Since then, the Purple One landed two high-fliers with The Very Best Of (No. 2 in May 2016) and Ultimate (No. 6 in May 2016).
Tasmanian outfit The Wolfe Brothers are based on the end of the world, though they’re living it up on the ARIA Albums Chart with Kids On Cassette (BMG/ADA), their fifth release. It’s new at No. 6 for the country rockers’ highest charting album to-date.
Over on the ARIA Singles Chart, The Kid Laroi and Justin Bieber enter a fourth week at the summit with “Stay.”
It caps a huge week for Laroi, whose hit collaboration lifted to No. 1 on Billboard’s Global 200 survey and F*ck Love reigned over the Billboard 200 chart for the first time.
