Over on this week’s Official Irish Albums Chart, Billie Eilish has achieved something no other female soloist has managed to do since April 2016.
The 17-year-old is Number 1 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.
