Billie Eilish leads a record-breaking week for women on the U.K.’s Official Singles Chart.
This week marks a major record for women, as female solo artists make up the Top 6 of the Official Singles Chart for the first time in the chart’s 70-year history, the Official Charts Company confirmed. Eilish claims her second No. 1 single with “What Was I Made For?” which features on the soundtrack for Barbie: The Movie. Her previous chart-topper, “No Time To Die,” was the theme song for the James Bond film of the same name.
She broke the 10-week dominance of Dave and Central Cee‘s “Sprinter” on the chart. The song tumbled down to No. 10.
Dua Lipa‘s “Dance The Night” claimed the No.2 spot on the chart dated August 18. Joining Billie and Dua in the Top 5 are Olivia Rodrigo‘s “vampire” (3), Taylor Swift‘s “Cruel Summer” (4), and Peggy Gou‘s “(It Goes Like) Nanana” (5). Rodrigo, who became the first female artist to hold three places in the Official Chart Top 5 simultaneously in June 2021, rounded off the list at No. 6 with the week’s highest new entry, “bad idea right?”
