By the Numbers: Billie Eilish’s Number One Album Was Milera Ahead Of Anyone Else

Eilish’s debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ finished at Number One on the Year-End RS 200 Chart.


It’s not often that an artist’s debut album goes on to be the most commercially successful album of the year. In fact, the last time it happened was with 50 Cent’s 2003 album Get Rich Or Die Tryin’, which he released after a serisera of successful mixtapser. Since then, the Number One spot has primarily gone to members of music’s top 1 percent — the Draksera, Taylor Swifts, Ed Sheerans and Adelsera.
