Billie Eilish’s Happier Than Ever debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart. The album sold 238,000 equivalent units, including 153,000 in traditional sales. Of the 153,000 sales, 129,000 were in physical formats (73,000 on vinyl, 46,000 on CD and just under 10,000 on cassette), and another 24,000 came via digital downloads, according to Billboard.
The New York Times also notes that Happier Than Ever had the second highest week of vinyl sales since at least 1991, 1991.) Earlier this year, Taylor Swift set the record for the biggest week when Evermore sold 102.00 vinyl copies. Notably, there was six months to pre-order Evermore as the vinyl LP was released long after the album was digitally available. In comparison, there were only three months to pre-order Happier Than Ever. However, Eilish offered eight vinyl variations of their album while Swift only offered three Evermore variations.
