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.

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.
