Incase you have been living under a rock for the past year or so Billie Eilish has had one of the single most impressive rise to success that I have ever seen. Now I always like to throw my own thoughts into these articles so I personally was late on the Billie train, but I;am now more recently wrapping my head around just what she and her brother Finneas have accomplished.
She had a single called “Bad Guy” you may have heard of, it currently has 762 million views on youtube, it debuted at #1 on the Billboard 100 and stayed on the chart for the next 45 weeks. I mentioned her brother Finneas, he is her composer/producer/engineer. He already worked with some huge artists like Selena Gomez and Rhianna. This is where the controversy kicks in though. Although Billie’s singing talent is undeniable, it has been pointed out that her brother has helped tremendously when it comes to launching her career. Would she have even made it half as far as she has without him? Maybe, maybe not but Billie has shown she is not a one hit wonder, with her debut album also hitting number 1. My question is where do they go from here? They’ve already swept the major awards at the Grammys, they’ve played the Oscars. How do you beat that? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. Oh did I mention that she is only 18? When I was 18 I was playing video games in my parents basement working at a grocery store, funny how that works.
