“Do you really wanna go back in time?” It’s a fair question, given the mess COVID had made all over 2020.
And it was just asked by Billie Eilish, who put it to her tens of millions of followers on social media along with a saucy snap of the teenage star.
Eilish poses, looking off camera with her mouth agape and her self drenched in a red light. It just might be a hint of new music to come.
The 18-year-old “Bad Guy” singer would do fine going back in time. She pretty much owned 2019 with the debut album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which hit the pinnacle of sales charts around the globe and scooped five Grammys earlier this year, including a rare sweep of the Big Four categories: album, record and song of the year plus best new artist.
Along the way, she smashed records left and right. Among them, she became the youngest album of the year winner in Grammy history (at 18), and the youngest singer of a Bond theme, “No Time to Die” (also 18).
Unlike most of us, Eilish has been productive during the pandemic.
During a recent interview for The Tonight Show, Eilish and her brother and collaborator Finneas revealed they’ve been in the zone.
“We’ve made a lot of music,” she told host Jimmy Fallon. “I don’t think we would have made it otherwise, if we hadn’t got this time. So as much as it’s been terrible to have this going on in the world, I think it has birthed some things. We have been really lucky with it.”
The music video for “No Time to Die” is due out Nov. 20. See Eilish’s Instagram below.
