O'Connell was born on December 18, 2001, in Los Angeles, California, and raised in Los Angeles' Highland Park. Her parents are actress and screenwriter Maggie Baird and actor Patrick O'Connell, both of whom are also musicians. O'Connell is of Irish and Scottish descent. She was homeschooled and joined the Los Angeles Children's Chorus at age eight. She began singing at a young age and began writing songs at age 11, taking after her older brother Finneas O'Connell, who was already writing, performing and producing his own songs with his band.
2015–2017: Don't Smile at Me
In October 2015, Eilish recorded the song "Ocean Eyes", initially written by Finneas for his band, and sent it to her dance teacher, who helped choreograph a dance to it. "Ocean Eyes" was released as Eilish's debut single on SoundCloud in 2015. A music video was released in March 2016, and a video of Eilish performing a dance to the song was released in November 2016. That year, Eilish also released the single "Six Feet Under". "Ocean Eyes" was certified platinum by the RIAA and peaked at number 84 on the Billboard Hot 100 in May 2019. "Ocean Eyes" was re-released worldwide through Darkroom and Interscope Records on November 18, 2016. On January 14, 2017, Eilish released an EP with four remixes of "Ocean Eyes".
Following the success of the "Ocean Eyes" remixes, Eilish released the single "Bellyache" on February 24, 2017, with a video released in March 2017. Later that March, Eilish released the track "Bored" as part of the soundtrack to the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. In June 2017, Eilish released the single "Watch" with a follow-up single, "Copycat" released in July 2017, along with the announcement of her debut extended play, Don't Smile at Me. Each Friday in July, Eilish would add another single to the EP. These singles included "Idontwannabeyouanymore" and "My Boy", both of which were certified gold by the RIAA. Don't Smile at Me was released in August 2017. After the release, Eilish collaborated with American rapper Vince Staples for a remix of "Watch" titled "&Burn", which was later included on a re-release of the EP. Following the EP's commercial success, Apple Music named Eilish an Up Next artist in September 2017. A live EP was released, titled “Up Next Session: Billie Eilish”.
2018–present: When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?
In February 2018, Eilish embarked on the Where's My Mind Tour, which concluded in April 2018. For Record Store Day 2018, Eilish released a 7" vinyl featuring an acoustic version of her song "Party Favor" and an acoustic cover of Drake's "Hotline Bling". Eilish collaborated with American singer Khalid for the single "Lovely", which was released in April 2018 and added to the soundtrack for the second season of 13 Reasons Why. "Lovely" was certified platinum in the US. She also released the singles "Bitches Broken Hearts" and "You Should See Me in a Crown", and the latter was featured on the soundtrack to the video game FIFA 19. In July 2018, Eilish performed at the Mo Pop Festival. In October 2018, Eilish released the single "When the Party's Over", and signed a modeling contract with Next Models. She was placed on the 2018 Forbes 30 Under 30 list in November of that year, and released the single "Come Out and Play", written for a holiday-themed Apple commercial.
In January 2019, Eilish released "Bury a Friend" as the third single from her debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, along with "When I Was Older", a single inspired by the 2018 film Roma, which appeared on the compilation album Music Inspired by the Film Roma. "Bury a Friend" peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her fourth single from the album, "Wish You Were Gay", was released in March 2019, and debuted and peaked at number 31 in the US and was certified platinum by the RIAA.
When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was released on March 29, 2019. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 as well as on the UK Albums Chart, making Eilish the first artist born in the 2000s to have a number one album in the United States, and the youngest female ever to have a number one album in the United Kingdom. Upon the album's debut, Eilish broke the record for most simultaneously charting Hot 100 songs by a female artist, with 14, after every song from the album, excluding "Goodbye", charted on the Hot 100. The fifth single from the album, "Bad Guy", was released in conjunction with the album, and peaked at number one in the US, ending Lil Nas X's record-breaking 19 weeks at number one with "Old Town Road". She is the first artist born in the 2000s and the youngest artist since Lorde (with "Royals") to have a number-one single. A remix of the song featuring Justin Bieber was released in July 2019.
She began her When We All Fall Asleep Tour at Coachella Festival in April 2019. The tour concluded in Mexico City on November 17, 2019. On September 27, 2019, she announced her Where Do We Go? World Tour via her Instagram page. The tour is set to begin in Miami on March 9, 2020 and conclude in London on July 27, 2020.
On November 7, 2019, Jack White's Third Man Records announced the label would be releasing an acoustic live album of Eilish's performance from the record label's Blue Room. The album will be available exclusively on vinyl at Third Man retail locations in Nashville, Tennessee, and Detroit, Michigan. On November 13, 2019, she released her next single, "Everything I Wanted".
On November 20, 2019, Eilish was nominated for six Grammy Awards including Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "Bad Guy" as well as Album of the Year and Best New Artist. At the age of 17, she is the youngest artist to be nominated in all four General Field categories. In the same month Eilish was crowned 2019 Billboard Woman of the Year. On January 14, 2020, Eilish was announced as performer of the title track for the twenty-fifth installment in the James Bond film franchise, No Time to Die, written and produced with her brother, Finneas O'Connell.
Musical style, songwriting, and music videos
Avery Stone of Noisey described Eilish's soprano vocals as "ethereal", and Maura Johnston of Rolling Stone characterized them as "whispery". Doreen St. Félix of The New Yorker opined that she has a "husky, slurring voice that she can thin out to reedy". Music critic Robert Christgau wrote that while Eilish is musically and commercially pop, her brand also "reminds us how amorphous [pop] has become", describing her soprano as "too diminutive for vocal calisthenics", adding that her "playful version of teen-goth angst" and "electro-saturated debut album" captivated a diverse audience. Her music incorporates alternative pop, dark pop, EDM, electropop, indie pop, and pop.
Eilish and her brother Finneas O'Connell collaborate on songwriting. Eilish called Finneas her partner in making music. He writes for her albums, produces her music and also performs with her on live shows. Eilish and Finneas "like to completely make up things and become characters" and "have songs that are really fictional". Eilish said a number of the songs also derive from her and Finneas' experiences. They try to write "really interesting and conversational" lyrics: "We try to say stuff that doesn't have to be that deep [...] but you say something way deeper in a certain way that makes sense, but you haven't really thought about." Finneas has stated when he writes songs for his sister, he aims to "write [songs] that I think she'll relate to and enjoy singing and empathise with the lyrics and make her own". When he writes with Eilish, he tries "to help her tell whatever story she's trying to tell, bounce ideas off of her, listen to her ideas", and use a language that fits her voice telling the story.
Eilish has insisted on directing her own music videos since she was 14, a role she says she wants to do for the rest of her career, though initially she was shunned from the opportunities due to lack of experience. She directed the video for her single "Xanny" shortly before her 18th birthday.
Eilish has said that stumbling upon "Runaway" by singer Aurora on YouTube is what inspired her to pursue music. Hip hop music is Eilish's favorite genre and biggest inspiration. She has cited Tyler, the Creator, Childish Gambino and Avril Lavigne as major musical and style influences for her, and other influences include Earl Sweatshirt, Amy Winehouse, Spice Girls, and Lana Del Rey. She has been compared in the media to Avril Lavigne, Lorde and Del Rey, the latter of whom she says she does not want to be compared to, stating, "That woman [Lana] has made her brand so perfect for her whole career and she shouldn't have to hear that." She has also named Rihanna as an inspiration for her style choices, after she called fashion her "defense mechanism" during an acceptance speech. In 2019, Eilish said she admired Ariana Grande for her vocal ability and felt she identified with her, adding that Grande's album Thank U, Next inspired her to continue making music.
Much of the media attention surrounding Eilish has revolved around her style, which consists primarily of baggy, ill-fitting clothing. In 2017, Eilish stated that she likes dressing out of her comfort zone to feel like she grabs the attention of everyone around her. Eilish states that she tries to be "really different from a lot of people", and wears clothing opposite to what others are wearing. Aiming to "look memorable", Eilish said she believes she "proved to people that I'm more important than they think", and she is "kind of intimidating, so people will listen up." In 2019, Eilish appeared in a Calvin Klein ad, wherein she mentioned that she dresses in baggy clothes in order to prevent people from body shaming her, stating: "Nobody can be like, 'She's slim-thick,' 'she's not slim-thick,' 'she's got a flat ass,' 'she's got a fat ass.' Nobody can say any of that because they don't know."
Products and endorsements
In April 2019, Eilish released clothing in collaboration with Takashi Murakami, inspired by her music video for "You Should See Me in a Crown", also directed and animated by Murakami, as well as a limited edition vinyl figure of herself from the video. Eilish also collaborated with Adobe Creative Cloud the same month for a series of advertisements as well as a social media art contest, where users would submit artwork with the hashtag "#BILLIExADOBE". Eilish appeared in the debut of Calvin Klein's "I Speak My Truth In #MyCalvins" ad campaign in May 2019, as well as the Ad Council's "Seize the Awkward" campaign, a series of PSAs targeting mental health awareness. She fronted MCM Worldwide's fall 2019 advertising campaign in July 2019, and later that month, collaborated with Los Angeles-based clothing brand Freak City for a clothing line. Also in July 2019, she performed at a dinner hosted by Chanel on Shelter Island to celebrate the brand's pop-up yacht club.
In August 2019, Billie Eilish partnered with Apple to allow Apple Store customers to experiment with her song "You Should See Me in a Crown" in Music Lab sessions in its stores. Eilish's collaboration with the clothing company Siberia Hills was met with controversy after it was revealed that the company had used plagiarized designs of fan art of the character Nozomi Tojo from Love Live!, drawn by artist Makoto Kurokawa, for Eilish's clothing line. The brand later clarified that Eilish herself had no knowledge of the plagiarism.
Eilish has stated that she has Tourette syndrome and synesthesia and has experienced depression. She was raised vegetarian and regularly advocates for veganism on social media. In an interview published by The Guardian in March 2019, Eilish stated she has never used drugs or smoked.
