Among the records that the 17-year-old songstress sets on the weekly chart is becoming the youngest female star to top the chart since 2009, when then 16-year-old Demi Lovato did so with 'Here We Go Again'.

AceShowbiz - Congratulations are in order for Billie Eilish, who already has a No. 1 album at just 17 years old. Her debut album, "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?", arrives atop Billboard 200 after racking up 313,000 equivalent album units in the week ending April 4, according to Nielsen Music. Of that sum, 170,000 were in traditional album sales.

With such an impressive number, the album logs the second-largest week for an album this year, following Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" which sold 360,000 units in its first week. The traditional sales also marks the second-biggest sales week of 2019 for an album, and the largest for an album by a woman. The bigger sales were hold by Backstreet Boys' "DNA", which racked up 227,000 units in traditional sales.

Those are not the only records that Billie sets with the album. In addition, "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?" marks the third-biggest week for an album by a woman with 194 million on-demand audio streams. It trails behind Ariana's "Thank U, Next" (307 million) and Cardi B's "Invasion of Privacy" (202 million). Not stopping there, she is the youngest woman to top the chart since 2009, when Demi Lovato ruled Billboard 200 with "Here We Go Again". She was 16 at the time.

Back to this week's Billboard 200, Nipsey Hussle's debut album "Victory Lap" re-enters the chart straight at No. 2 following the rapper's tragic death earlier this week. The set sold 66,000 units. Trailing behind "Victory Lap" is Ariana's "Thank U, Next" which slips to No. 3 with 53,000 units. Another new entry for this week's chart is George Strait's "Honky Tonk Time Machine", which launches at No. 4 with 51,000 units.

The rest of the top ten is filled with former chart-topping albums. Juice WRLD's "Death Race for Love" moves down to No. 5 with 44,000 units, while Nav's "Bad Habits" descends from its top spot to No. 6 with 35,000 units. Post Malone's "Beerbongs & Bentleys" follows closely behind them at No. 7 with 32,000 units. Meanwhile, the soundtrack album to "A Star Is Born" falls to No. 8 with 31,000 units.

Rounding out the top for this week are A Boogie Wit da Hoodie's "Hoodie SZN", which slides to No. 9 with 30,000 units, and Drake's "Scorpion", which re-enters the chart at No. 10 with 29,000 units.
