Billie Eilish Claims More Than Half Of The Entire Alternative Songs Chart For Herself

By News Creatives Authors , in Business , at August 16, 2021

Billboard’s Hot Alternative Songs chart is still relatively new (just over a year old by now), but already one musician stands out as perhaps the most successful in its short tenure. Billie Eilish rocketed to stardom at just the right time to conquer the tally over and over, and this week, she does so once again thanks to the immediate and incredible popularity of her new album Happier Than Ever.

This week, Eilish appears in 14 spaces on the Hot Alternative Songs chart. That would be an impressive showing on any Billboard list, but this genre-specific tally is shorter than most, which makes the 19-year-old’s performance that much more incredible and worthy of praise.

The Hot Alternative Songs chart only features 25 spaces, so by filling 14 of them with her recent releases, Eilish claims more than half of the entire list for herself. That’s a rare sight on any Billboard roster, and one that is reserved for only the biggest and most powerful acts on the planet.

The title track from Eilish’s new album, “Happier Than Ever,” blasts in at No. 1, bringing her back to the summit for just the second time in her career. She previously ruled with “My Future,” which is’t present this time around. 

Eilish actually fills half of all the spots inside the top 10 this time around, scoring four new placements inside the highest tier with debuting smashes. In addition to the immediately successful “Happier Than Ever,” Eilish starts her album cuts “Getting Older,” “Billie Bossa Nova” and “Oxytocin” at Nos. 8, 9 and 10, respectively. Current single “NDA” lifts to No. 6 after previously peaking at No. 3. She has now appeared somewhere between Nos. 1 and 10 with 11 different tracks.

Of her 14 currently-charting hits on this week’s Hot Alternative Songs chart, three are non-debuts. The previously-mentioned “NDA” advances a few spots, while “Lost Cause” and “Your Power” find space on the ranking once again. Those two latter cuts have previously risen as high as Nos. 3 and 2, respectively.
