3 Times When Billie Eilish Made Chart-Bursting History

Published 12/29/2022, 6:30 PM EST

From “I’m that bad type, make-your-mama-sad type, make-your-girlfriend-mad type, might-seduce-your-dad type” to “Standing there, killing time, can’t commit to anything but a crime” Billie Eilish is a musical genius, and there is no other way to go about it. At just the age of fifteen, Eilish entered the Billboard 200 charts. And although she did not make it to the top 15 in the first few weeks, the singer rose to it as the days passed. The singer, along with her brother, wrote her now award-winning album in her little room. Little did they know it would be standing at the top of the Billboard charts within a year’s time.

Eilish, at her young age, has won an Oscar and seven Grammys. But there are countless other accolades that the singer has received and records that she has broken. With her first hit at fifteen, Billie Eili,sh became a global name with multiple hits by eighteen.  When Eilish wrote, “You should see me in a crown,” she was not kidding. The crown for being the most accomplished artist at 21 certainly suits her very well. Here is a list of times Eilish made history with her accomplishments.

1. Billie Eilish’s first album makes it to Billboard 200 at No.1

We were not quoting a fan when we said that Billie Eilish is a musical genius. It’s a fact. The singer’s first-ever album,, titled When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? made it to Billboard  200.

And it was not just among the Top 10 but actually charted at No.1, making Eilish the first ever artist born in the 21st century to have a No.1 album. “Wait a minute, let me finish” Eilish only went up from there.

2. Bad Guy makes Billie Eilish a Billboard Hot 100 singer

At a time when “Old Town Road” was not just constantly ringing in everyone’s mind but also ranking No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Billie Eilish did what most could not do.

Bad Guy was a global hit, and the track spent nine weeks at No.2 before deservingly becoming No.1, dethroning Old Town Road.
