Plus: Lizzo aiming for top 10 debut.
Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? is aiming for a return engagement at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, according to industry forecasters. Those in the know suggest the set could jump back to the top, for a second total week at No. 1, with over 85,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending April 25.
The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). The top 10 of the May 4-dated Billboard 200 chart (where Eilish may return to No. 1) is scheduled to be revealed on Billboard’s websites on Sunday, April 28.
When We All Fall Asleep is currently in its fourth week on the Billboard 200 chart (through the list dated April 27). The album debuted at No. 1 on the April 13 list with 313,000 equivalent album units earned in its first week, according to Nielsen Music. The set then slipped to No. 2 for the next two weeks.
Elsewhere on the upcoming chart, watch for Lizzo’s full-length debut album Cuz I Love You to possibly bow in the top 10. The set could start with maybe 35,000 units. Following Cuz I Love You, the next-highest new entries on the list could arrive outside the top 10 from the likes of The Rolling Stones‘ new hits collection Honk and Cage the Elephant‘s new studio release Social Cues.
