There is so much to take away from Billie, her brother and the process they followed to achieve the level of success they are currently seeing and there is only more to come.
Who is Billie Eilish: Billie is an American singer-songwriter. She first gained attention in 2015 when she uploaded the song “Ocean Eyes” to SoundCloud, which was subsequently released by the Interscope Records subsidiary Darkroom. The song was written and produced by her brother Finneas O’Connell, with whom she collaborates on music and live shows. Her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me (2017), became a sleeper hit, reaching the top 15 in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.
Eilish’s debut studio album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019), debuted atop the US Billboard 200, reached number-one in the UK, and became one of the best-selling albums of 2019. The album’s fifth single “Bad Guy” became her first number-one song on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2020, she performed the theme song “No Time to Die” for the James Bond film of the same name, which became her first number-one single in the UK. Her later singles “Everything I Wanted”, “My Future”, and “Therefore I Am” peaked within the top 10 in the US and UK.
Her accolades include five Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, two Guinness World Records, three MTV Video Music Awards, and one Brit Award. She is the youngest person and the second in history to win the four main Grammy categories—Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year—in the same year. In 2019, Time magazine placed her on their inaugural Time 100 Next list. Eilish is the 26th-highest-certified artist of the digital singles era, according to the RIAA.
