Eighteen-year-old pop superstar, Billie Eilish, and her brother, Finneas O’Connell, recently performed their hit “Bad Guy” for an online-exclusive concert on Sunday, March 29. Hosted by Elton John, the concert featured performances from multiple artists in their homes, which Fox then aired at 8 p.m. central. The concert aimed to raise awareness and donations for the organizations of Feeding America and First Responders Children’s Foundation. The concert also taught safety tips to limit exposure to the coronavirus, COVID-19 and finished with a donation amount of more than $1 million. 

Billie Eilish recently released her James Bond theme song, similarly titled to the film, “No Time To Die.” The song entered Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart at No. 16, aiming for more popularity and success in the future. 

Billie Eilish is well-known for the five Grammy Awards for her debut album, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?,” produced and co-written by her brother, 22-year-old Finneas O’Connell. The pair recorded and released the 14-track album in O’Connell’s bedroom, breaking the barrier in the music industry for creativity and originality. 

But the music and songwriting have not ceased since the “boom” of popularity when it comes to Eilish. In fact, it inspired her to continue to make more music. “It really feels genuine and natural when we work together. I think for a while it was, like, we only could make music in our house, in the bedroom that we grew up in and now I feel like we’re at this place where it’s like we could just do it anywhere,” Eilish told Billboard in a recent interview. “It feels good. It feels good. I’m ready to go on tour and make an album. I’m ready, and I’m excited.”

Since the album drop in March 2019, Eilish has since released two songs, “Everything I Wanted,” presumably a lead single, and “No Time To Die,” from the similarly-titled James Bond film. Both songs have done tremendously well, both in charts and in “radio-air-time.” 

Numerous fans are wondering what this means for the future of both Billie and Finneas. It is no secret that Eilish has been working on a self-inspired documentary, apparently aligning ties with Apple TV. But what may come as a surprise to many, Eilish said in an interview with iHeart Radio, that even though she does not plan on releasing an album in 2020, she is working on one. 

Even though this means no new big announcements will be expected for 2020, fans and listeners alike can expect lead singles and tours to accompany the new documentary, which is planned to be released this year.

To continue in her recent publicity, Eilish gives fans a taste of “Corona-safety” to enlighten response in her fans. “Don’t panic, but don’t be an idiot,” Eilish told fans on her Instagram live-stream. “Young people all over the place going out and hanging out, it’s irresponsible,” she said, then to go on about her realizations.

“It was like that stupid state of mine, [where I didn’t care if I got it]. Then I realized that it’s not about me.” Eilish explained. The superstar then went on to explain that we have to protect those who are older and weaker, who may be more impacted by the temperament of the virus. Eilish then posted on her Instagram story informing fans about Spotify’s “COVID-19 Music Relief” organization, which provides financial relief to the global music community. You can donate to the link attached, which Spotify will then match up to a total of $10 million.
