It’s the originality, the melodies, the aura of a young pop star — no, it’s got to be the fact the loves The Office.
I learned about Billie Eilish early last year. She was already kind of big, but she did this YouTube video with Rainn Wilson, aka Dwight.
Her new album didn’t even release yet, so I just looked up her other hits and albums. Instantly, I was digging her music. I don’t know why but I kept listening— because all her songs were catchy and just lyrically witty and mature for a 16-17 year old.
Embarrassingly, I find out her fanbase is in the same 15-18 yo age group (surprise). I would ask all my friends if they knew who Billie Eilish was, and responses were either ‘never heard of her’ or lukewarm at best.
I mean, at this point, I don’t think anyone can possibly think it’s uncool to like Billie Eilish, Her album ‘when we sleep, we do we go?’ exploded in 2019. It’s just madness how fast she ascended the mainstream music charts. She deserves it. I would not be surprised if she won album of the year in the coming Grammys.
Anyways, my girlfriend Nicole knew how much I loved her, so she got me tickets to see her this coming March. YEEEEE boi.
