One of the most sonically and musically superior stars in the industry is Billie Eilish. The singer gained prominent fame and success as early as 14 years. In her short span of what one can suppose is a long and thriving career, she has made a name for herself and won 64 accolades recognizing her talent. Katy Perry, who blazed the pop scene with some bangers in the 2000s and beyond has regretted passing on a working opportunity with the ‘bad guy’ singer.
Billie Eilish has achieved many feats that many artists could not do in the last forty years in the industry. In 2020, she swept four major Grammy Awards at the ceremony. She is an Oscar-winning and Grammy-winning performing artist. But, the success and career incepted when she and her brother Finneas O’Connell dropped ‘Ocean Eyes’, which was the breakthrough song for the brother-sister duo. Even after seven years, the song haunts Katy Perry as she declined to be a part of it.
