Update: Within an hour of its release late Thursday/early Friday, Billie Eilish’s “Happier Than Ever” rocketed to #1 on the US iTunes album sales chart.

It briefly slid to #2, however, as NEEDTOBREATHE’s fellow new release “Into The Mystery” moved into the pinnacle position.

“Happier Than Ever” nonetheless gained additional momentum as Friday progressed, and it has since returned to #1 on the listing.
As the follow-up to a Grammy-winning album from one of music’s most beloved and acclaimed artists, Billie Eilish’s new “Happier Than Ever” was sure to make an immediate impact upon its release.

That impact is already visible on the US iTunes store.

The album, which launched at midnight late Thursday/early Friday, holds #1 on the store’s all-genre sales chart as of 1AM ET. “Happier Than Ever” takes over #1 from ZZ Top’s “Greatest Hits,” which reached #1 in the wake of bassist Dusty Hill’s passing.

The US iTunes chart tends to be very volatile in the early morning hours on Friday, but “Happier Than Ever” seems like a safe bet to retain its #1 position for the near-term.
