Billie Eilish has achieved something no other female soloist has managed to do since April 2016.
The 17-year-old is Number 1 on this week’s Official Irish Albums Chart for a sixth non-consecutive week with her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, making her the first woman to complete a sextet of weeks at the top since Adele’s 25.
Behind Adele’s 21 (35 weeks) and 25 (15 weeks), Billie’s album is now the third longest-reigning female album of the decade, tied with Ellie Goulding’s second LP Halcyon.
Fresh from the release of his chart-topping single I Don’t Care, Ed Sheeran’s third album ÷ spikes up the chart eight places to Number 4, while Dermot Kennedy’s self-titled collection leaps 11 spots to Number 11 following his three-night residency at Dublin’s Olympia Theatre.
Logic scores this week’s highest new entry and his third Top 20 album with Confessions of a Dangerous Mind at 14, while Mac DeMarco takes out a second visit to the Top 50 with his fifth record Here Comes The Cowboy at 37.
Two Kodaline albums – Politics of Living (33) and In A Perfect World (47) return to the chart following their RTÉ Late Late Show appearance and finally, Jax Jones’ Snacks EP hits a new peak (44).
