Billie Eilish returns to the U.K. album summit with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (Interscope/Universal), as Lil Nas X starts a second week atop the singles chart there with “Old Town Road” (Lil Nas X/Sony).
Eilish had two weeks at No. 1 before being deposed last week by BTS' Map Of The Soul (Bighit Entertainment/Universal). When We All… finishes this chart week 6,000 combined units ahead of the soundtrack of The Greatest Showman (Atlantic/Warner Music), which rises 3-2. South London-born hip-hop artist and actor Loyle Carner's Not Waving But Drowning (EMI/Universal) is the highest new entry at No. 3.
George Ezra's Staying At Tamara's (Columbia/Sony) rises yet again, 8-4, as does Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack (Virgin/Universal), 6-5. There's a No. 8 entry for the Rolling Stones' Honk compilation, which becomes their 39th U.K. top ten album, and rising singer-songwriter Jade Bird starts at No. 10 with her self-titled debut set for Glassnote.
Lil Nas X amassed 10.3 million audio and video plays over the sales week, according to the Official Charts Company. That's the third highest total of 2019, behind Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" and "Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I'm Bored." “Old Town Road” stays ahead of “Piece Of Your Heart” (Polydor/Universal) by Meduza featuring Goodboyz, which is up again 4-2.
Lewis Capaldi's former chart-topper of seven weeks, “Someone You Loved” (EMI/Universal), falls 2-3 and Eilish's “Bad Guy” drops 3-4. Tom Walker's “Just You and I” (Relentless/Sony) holds at No. 5. “S.O.S.” (Virgin/Universal) by Avicii featuring Aloe Blacc climbs 12-6, becoming the late DJ's 10th U.K. top ten single.
