Miraculously, Eilish was able to rake in the most Spotify streams for a female artist without even releasing an album in 2020.
The singer’s debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was released in March of 2019 and helped make her a household name, following the success of her single Bad Guy.
Despite not adding another album to her discography, Billie did premiere three brand new tracks throughout the year, including No Time To Die which the singer wrote for the upcoming James Bond film of the same name.

In July 2019, Eilish released a remix of her track Bad Guy with Bieber.
Earlier this year, she called Bieber ‘the sweetest baby ever’ on SiriusXM’s The Morning Mashup.
Justin, a veteran in the world of entertainment, has even helped Billie navigate the spotlight.

‘He’s a good friend of mine. He has been so helpful for me, in terms of just, like, dealing with fame,’ Billie continued.
She added: ‘He’ll call me sometimes and just say stuff that makes me just feel heard and like there’s somebody else that goes through the same stuff. So it’s really nice to have him.’
Certainly Billie has been listening to his advice as she finds herself back in the spotlight, with the release of her new studio album, Happier Than Ever.
