This new hit song is Eilish's fourth No. 1 in the rankings, recorded since May 2019, when her previous track "Bury a Friend" ruled the chart for two weeks.

Another of the singer’s two-week leaders was "Bad Guy" followed by "Everything I Wanted" - a smash hit that reigned for five frames starting in February 2020.

The incredible record of four No. 1s is the biggest achievement for a solo act in the Alternative Airplay chart's 32-year archives. Eilish broke the records that previously were a tie with Beck (who had three top songs between 1994-2017) and Alanis Morissette (also three leaders, 1995-96).

Furthermore, Billie broke the record for most Alternative Airplay No. 1s by a woman solo artist or a band with female vocals, held before by Morissette, The B-52s, and The Head and the Heart.

Concurrently, "Therefore" ascends 4-2 on the all-rock-format Rock Airplay chart with the impressive 4.9 million audience impressions, up 1%, according to MRC Data.

"Therefore I Am" is currently a standalone single from Eilish’s much-awaited new record. The songstress last released a multi-song project LP “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” in March 2019.

It reigned for three-weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and can you believe that stayed in the chart's top 40 over its entire run.  The collection set has earned the whopping figure of 4.6 million equivalent album units to date.
