17-Year-old Billie Eilish makes history as the first artist born in 2000s with a No. 1 album

Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell is an American singer-songwriter. She is also only 17 years old, but that has not held her back from reaching for the stars.

The ‘Bury A Friend’ crooner has had a meteoric rise since she first stepped into the spotlight in 2016 after her debut track  ‘Ocean Eyes’ received great success. According to CNN, the pop singer-songwriter is 17 years old and the first artist born in the 2000s to hit No. 1, thanks to her debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ She’s also the youngest woman to hit No. 1 since 2009 when Demi Lovato debuted with ‘Here We Go Again’ at age 16.

Billie’s success has been a quick yet steady rise, after her, the track ‘Ocean Eyes’ was remastered and re-released by Darkroom and Interscope records. In January 2017, the 4-time award nominee released four remixes of ‘Ocean Eyes’ in the debut EP. Record World reports her debut single, ‘Ocean Eyes’, went viral and has accumulated over 116 million streams on Spotify alone as of September 2018. Her debut EP Don’t Smile at Me was released in August 2017. Following the EP’s success, Apple Music named Eilish as its newest Up Next artist a month later in October 2017.

Her track ‘Bored’ was also released as part of the soundtrack of the iconic teen drama ’13 Reasons Why.’ Billie’s music has been criticized for its dark and raw subject matter. One of her tracks ‘Bury A Friend’ has over 116M views. Released on January 30th, 2019, the track is a major success despite its tortured, horrifying visuals.
