Now before explaining what successful things she has done, first let’s find out some background information about this amazing artist.

Billie Eillish whose full name is Billie Eillish Pirate Baird O’Connell was born on December 18, 2001, raised in Highland Park, CA.  Her parents are Maggie Baird and Patrick O’Connell. She doesn’t really have a school life since she was home schooled. Where she started to discover her talent was when she joined a group called Children’s Chorus. She started singing at age 11 and with the help of her brother, Finneas O’Connell, who was already working with his own band, she was also able to start writing songs at a young age.After all the time of her young years practicing music, she was finally able to show the world her true talent. She released her first song that her brother helped her with which was Ocean Eyes. Ocean Eyes was released in 2016. Right after it was released, it went viral, which was a huge surprise to Billie and her older brother Finneas. Right after, she released  two more singles which are “Six Feet Under’’ and “Bellyache”.

Ocean Eyes was released in 2016. Right after it was released, it went viral, which was a huge surprise to Billie and her older brother Finneas.

Personal Life                                                             

Billie doesn’t really have nothing to hide since she loves her fans and Billie Eilish might make some songs that makes you think she does some bad stuff, but actually Billie stated she had never drank alcohol or has never done drugs. The only thing that has really happened throughout her life is that she has gone through depression. The thing that triggered her depression is  she had to quit dance at age 13. Some people might think that, “oh that’s not a big deal”, but to her it had a huge impact on her. After going through that tragic event she had learned how to become understanding of others feelings and even fans say that her songs help them go through a rough time. Her songs impacted her fans so much that some even say that she saved them from hurting themselves or from suicide.

 

Present Time

Now she is 17 and she has created many successful albums. This year, 2019, she released a new album named “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”  One of the songs that were released was Bad Guy which was 1st in the music charts and was a big hit in many different countries. It was able to beat the United States record of  “Old Time Road” which was staying on top of the song charts for 17 weeks and Bad Guy broke the record by running on top of the chart for 19 weeks. Now she has been working hard to create many new songs and recently won 3 awards at the MTV Video Music Awards. The awards she won were New Editing, Editing and Push Artist. She has done a great job in her career and started at such a young age and for sure her fans, like myself, are proud of her. Us fans are expecting more songs from her but for right now we are proud of our young female growing artist.
