In the fall of last year, Darkroom/Interscope star Billie Eilish launched songs like “when the party’s over” and “come out and play” onto the sales and streaming charts internationally, as the talented performer continued to grow musically. Now, Eilish returns with her next big track, a composition inspired by the Netflix film Roma. “WHEN I WAS OLDER”, which debuted on Wednesday morning, is well into the top ten (#7) on iTunes in the U.S., with building chart action in about 50 countries at the platform. It’s one of six titles that she has in the top 200, with “when” (#64) and Alternative radio hit “you should see me in a crown” (#74) still holding well. “WHEN” is also active on Spotify’s Chilled Hits and Apple Music’s Breaking Alternative playlists, with a solid total of 798,000 plays accumulated at the former in its first day. Several of her prior releases still rank in the top 200 on the U.S. charts at both services, with Spotify claiming more entries (eight) in the region. On YouTube, an audio-only clip for “WHEN” has passed one million views, landing at #6 on the service’s Trending chart, while it’s registered about 3,100 tags on Shazam. With the initial numbers for this cut in mind, we think Eilish is poised for more movie magic later this year.
