Billie Eilish is dominating just about every music scene there is right now. She’s pop enough to get played on the main radio stations, but her haunting sound pulls those who prefer punk music as well. Her 2018 collaboration with Kahlid bought her some hip-hop fans, and suddenly she’s one of the most influential young artists on the planet.
Her award collection proves it, too. She won six different awards at three different award shows in 2019 alone. Her single “Bad Guy” is the most successful so far, with its intriguing music video and genre-spanning sound.
Billie’s Short but Successful Career (So Far)
How old do you have to be to dominate the music charts for months on end? According to Billie Eilish, you can do it at the tender age of 14. That’s when she came out with her debut song, Ocean Eyes.
It went platinum with the help of her musical family and Hollywood contacts. That success set her on the road to where she is today – at the top of her game. Just two years later, Billie signed with a record label and released her first album, “Don’t Smile at Me”. It made an appearance on multiple music charts and got her a deal to collaborate with Kahlid, for a song on the Netflix Show, 13 Reasons Why.
Then she released, “Come Out and Play”, followed by her first studio album “When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go?” Her studio album boasted hits like “Wish You Were Gay” and “You Should See Me in a Crown” – both big radio (and streaming) hits. The young artist has millions of YouTube subscribers and even more followers on Instagram.
