Billie Eilish takes Official Trending Chart top spot with Happier Than Ever

Plus brand new Dermot Kennedy, Silk Sonic and Skepta land a place in the Top 20.

Happier Than Ever, the title track from Billie Eilish’s second album, lands at Number 1 on this week's Official Trending Chart.

Dropped alongside a theatrical music video last Friday – the same day as the album's release – Happier Than Ever picked up 1.1 million streams over the weekend to claim the UK's top trending song.

The single, which begins as a laid-back acoustic ballad before growing into a triumphant rock anthem, is expected to reach the Top 20 on this Friday’s Official Singles Chart, landing at Number 12 on the midweek chart update.

Billie lands a second song on this week’s Official Trending Chart with Getting Older, also from her newly-released album and on track make a Top 40 debut this Friday. See how Happier Than Ever (the album) is getting on in the Official Albums Chart Update here.
