The 20-year-old LA-born singer and songwriter, Billie Eilish, is undeniably a global sensation.
She first gained attention in 2015 from her single, Ocean Eyes, which was written by her older brother, Finneas O’Connell, it now has a staggering 908 million plays on Spotify. Since then, she released the album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in 2019, which peaked at number 1 in 15 countries and sold 1.2 million units globally in 2019 alone, including the song Bad Guy which has over 2 billion plays on Spotify and swiftly made it to top 10 of Billboard Hot 100. Her most recent album, Happier than Ever (2021), also broke the charts by scoring one of the biggest debuts in 2021, so there is no doubt she is racking in the millions.
According to CelebrityNetWorth.com, Billie Eilish’s estimated net worth is a mighty $30 million (£25 million), becoming one of the highest-paid musicians in the world. Thanks to record-breaking music sales, album tours, Apple paying her roughly $25 million alone for the documentary, Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry (2021), and her most recent project, Happier Than Ever: A Love Letter to LA, which is available to stream on Disney Plus, she is undeniably racking in the cash.
Recently opening up about her ‘exhausting’ Tourette’s Syndrome as part of David Letterman’s My Next Guest Needs No Introduction on Netflix, she said she was ‘incredibly confused’ by the syndrome after being diagnosed when she was 11 years old. With Tourette’s Syndrome (TS) being a condition that causes one to make involuntary sounds and movements called tics, many fans were unaware of her neurological disorder until she courageously spoke about it. Billie just doesn’t have an amazing voice but is also an inspiration for those struggling with a similar diagnosis.
Unquestionably, her fortune is well-deserved. With every concert being sold-out, headlining world-renowned festivals such as Coachella and Glastonbury, and being the youngest person to feature on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, thanks to her talent, she wows fans worldwide and remains one of the most popular artists in the music industry. And her net worth is only expected to grow more.
