Billie Eilish just broke the record as the youngest solo artist to take home album of the year, and that was not her only win at this year’s Grammy Awards. The 18-year-old, now house-hold name, is popping up everywhere we look. Her career and popularity have just continued to skyrocket for the last few years and she is not slowing down.
Not only did Billie become the youngest solo artist to ever win Album of The Year, but she also became the first artist to win all four top awards since 1981. If that doesn’t prove that she is the newest and hottest chick on the block, then we don’t know what will.
Billie’s Grammy awards included Album of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Not a bad effort Billie, not bad at all.
From Sweet Beginnings to Worldwide Fame
Since writing her first song at four-years-old, Billie has continued to write and perform her and her brother’s songs. This seems impossible to believe? Weren’t we all playing with Play-Doh at the age of four? Billie recorded her first song “Ocean Eyes” in 2015, which was written and produced by her older brother, Finneas.
This dynamic duo is not only passionate about their music, but they are also extremely close. They are definitely keeping an eye out for each other as they navigate their success and fame. The impressive siblings have only gotten stronger and better with time and are absolutely killing it in 2020.
So we can definitely all admit that the music Billie and her big brother make together is great, but we think it is also Billie herself that is the major hit. If you haven’t already watched the Vanity Fair “Same Interview, One Year Apart” interviews from 2016, 2017 and 2018, then please go watch it.
Billie is asked the same question about herself, her fame, her shows, and her music each year and shown the comparison from the previous interview. Seeing the difference in her fame is wild as she grew from 257,000 followers to 6.1 million between 2017 and 2018.
We all love the way Billie is so real and raw when she talks about her life, her childhood, her fame, and her mental health. It is a part of her charm and the way we relate to her. And this is what we feel with her music, it is her.
More to Come
The latest album tackles issues of depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, and the climate crisis. For millennials, there is nothing more relevant and more inspiring than someone talking openly about these topics. We can definitely see that as they get older, Billie and her brother are digging deeper and getting even more expressive.
As she and her brother move forward, wherever the next couples of years take them, we expect good things to come. Billie is so young and if she continues at this rate, there is no stopping her and her future success. We are all excited to see what is to come!
