Billie Eilish is the newest addition to the list. She is currently the most popular vocalist on the planet. Billie Eilish Pirate Baird O’Connell is an American singer and songwriter, born on December 18, 2001. Her debut single, ‘Ocean Eyes,’ was published by Darkroom, an Interscope Records offshoot, in 2015, and garnered her a lot of attention.
Finneas O’Connell, her brother, wrote and produced the song, with whom she frequently collaborates on music and in live concerts. Don’t Smile at Me (2017), her first extended play, was a financial success, charting in the top 15 in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019), Eilish’s first studio album, debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 and number one in the UK. It was one of the best-selling albums of the year, thanks to the success of the album’s fifth single, ‘Bad Guy,’ which was Eilish’s first number-one hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
She co-wrote and sang the theme song for the James Bond film No Time to Die, which topped the UK singles chart in 2020. ‘Everything I Wanted,’ ‘My Future,’ ‘Therefore I Am,’ and ‘Your Power’ all charted in the top ten in the United States and the United Kingdom, while her sophomore album, Happier Than Ever (2021), hit number one in 25 countries.
Seven Grammy Awards, two American Music Awards, one Guinness World Record, a Golden Globe Award, three MTV Video Music Awards, and two Brit Awards have all been bestowed to Eilish. She is the second artist in Grammy history to win all four general field categories in the same year: Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Album of the Year.
In 2019, she was named to Time magazine’s inaugural Time 100 Next list, and in 2021, she was named to the regular Time 100 list. Eilish is the 26th highest-certified digital singles artist, according to the RIAA and Billboard, and one of the most successful musicians of the decade.
