Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’ Connell but goes by Billie Eilish is an American singer-songwriter. She is 18 years old and came out with her first song “Ocean Eyes” when she was only sixteen. Since then her music career has skyrocketed.
Billie is one of the youngest artists, she has made record-breaking news at the Grammys. She has won the “Big 4”. The big four is when you win album of the year, the song of the year, and best new artist of the year, all at once.
The only other person to ever do this is an artist named Christopher Cross. He won the big four thirty nine years ago.
Billie won album of the year for her debut, When We All Fall Asleep Where Do We Go?. She won record and song of the year with her most famous song “Bad Guy”.
Eilish only being 18 is by far one of the youngest, album of the year winners in Grammy history. She easily beat Taylor Swift. Swift was 20 when she won album of the year. Young Billie is also the youngest best new artist winner since LeAnn Rimes. Rimes was 14 when she won in 1996. Billie is the youngest since Lorde to win song of the year, Lorde was just 17 when she won.
Not only did Billie win awards but so did her brother, Finneas. He won producer of the yar, nonclassical and best-engineered album. Much like Billie, Finneas is also the youngest in Grammy history to ever win producer of the year at only 22 years old.
Billie is also the first woman to get the big four in one night. She is showing everyone that no matter what age or gender you are if you try your hardest and work for what you want you will be able to make it the top.
