I will be starting this post with a completely unsubstantiated claim:
Billie Eilish is the new Lorde.
OK, so now I’ll try to back this claim up with data.
Lorde pretty much fell off the map back in 2018 after her sophomore album, “Melodrama,” was released in 2017. To date, it’s sold under a million whereas her first album (“Pure Heroine,” 2013) blew up all the charts and has since sold over 4 million.
Enter Billie Eilish.
Billie Eilish’s debut album came in 2019 and, like Lorde’s first album, has slaughtered the charts. She has a couple of big hits from that album and is basically the belle of the ball at this point. Both Billie and Lorde were 17 years old when their first albums debuted. Lorde was 21 years old when her second album was released, and as of this post Billie Eilish does not have a second album made public.
I don’t feel like looking into this anymore. 🙂
But in my mind, Billie Eilish has picked up where Lorde left off. What are your thoughts? Will Billie’s second album be as well received as her first, or will it slump like Lorde’s second album did?
Thanks for stopping by!
