Is This Girl The Next Big Hit?

Have you ever heard of Billie Eilish? She is a popular song artist, and her music career started around 2016-2017, which was when her first song was released. But she hit it big when her song “Ocean Eyes” went viral in 2016. Billie’s career in music had taken off.

Let’s start with her background. Billie was born on December 18th, 2001. She was born in Los Angeles, California, with her full name Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell. And her brother, Finneas O’Connell, is 8 years older than her. By the time when she was about 6, she had found her love for music, she also sang in the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus when she was little. She was singing, dancing, & writing songs. she and her brother write all of her songs. Some of her songs are featured on some popular shows, such as “13 Reasons Why.”

Billie strongly believes in women’s rights and is a very independent person. She says what’s on her mind and doesn’t let anyone tell her what to do. In her song, Copycat, she says “Watch your back when you can’t watch mine,” Meaning not to copy her, because she notices, lots of people look up to Billie Eilish and want to be just like her, but the lyric tells you not to copy her.  While writing songs, she expresses herself fully and doesn’t write what she doesn’t want to. Billie Eilish produced her first song through Darkroom Interscope©️. Her father and her brother help produce her music, Billie and her brother write her songs together, and her mother coaches her to be a better singer.

During her tours, fans are constantly asking for autographs, signatures, and for her to sing longer. Her tour prices range from $90-$500 depending on where you buy the tickets from and what you buy it for. During her tours, she is on a specific schedule. She keeps to herself (sometimes) and is very focused. Her early tours starting in late 2017, she hasn’t been “famous” for long. I found out about Billie 1 year ago when her song “Bellyache” came on the radio. And ever since then, I’ve been ‘addicted’.

Most of her songs are featuring depression, something bad happening, anxiety when in reality all of her songs are written with her brother and her just throwing out ideas. The reason people like her music is because of her voice, her beautiful, flawless (to me) voice. Billie has produced many songs (None of which I don’t like!). People all around the world listen to Billie Eilish songs; her hit song, Ocean Eyes, has over 29 million views! That’s insane! And, all the songs that she makes averages over 20 million views on YouTube!

Billie Eilish was about 15 when she produced her first song, If you ask me, that’s pretty young! One of Billie’s first song was off of the show “The Walking Dead.” It’s called ‘Fingers Crossed.” She wrote that when she was about 12.

All in all, Billie’s beautiful voice, wonderfully written lyrics, and “striking” personality makes her unique. “Your italics, I’m in BOLD” -Billie Eilish
