Billie Eilish Reaches 100M Spotify Listeners

The latest in an ever-growing list of major accomplishments, Billie Eilish has become the third artist to surpass 100,000,000 monthly listeners on Spotify.

Joining the very exclusive club with only 82 songs under her belt, the two-time Oscar winner sits behind The Weeknd (with 107 million monthly listeners,) and Taylor Swift (with 102 million) both of whom have more than twice as many songs than Eilish on the streaming giant platform. And at 22 years old, Billie is the youngest singer/songwriter to have reached the 100 million monthly listeners milestone.

In an statement to Billboard, Spotify’s global head of music, Jeremy Erlich said “Spotify has been a part of Billie’s story from the start. Ever since ‘Ocean Eyes,’ she has continuously grown her fan base around the world.” “What she and [brother-collaborator] Finneas have achieved since 2016 is quite remarkable … and all this by the age of 22.”

Including “Lovely” with Khalid (2.8 million plays to date), “Bad Guy” (2.5 million), “When the Party’s Over” (1.8 million), “Everything I Wanted” (1.6 million), “Ocean Eyes” (1.4 million), “Happier Than Ever” (1.3 million), “Idontwannabeyouanymore” (1.09 million) and “Bury a Friend” (1.01 million,) the superstar musician currently has eight songs in the streamer’s Billions Club

Eilish’s debut single, “Ocean Eyes,” arrived on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2018 and peaked at #84 the following year. Since then, she’s landed 42 more titles on the all-genre tally, with six of those reaching the top 10, including 2019’s “Bad Guy,” which topped the chart in August that year.

Following her debut LP When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and her sophomore collection Happier Than Ever, both of which topped the chart for three weeks, Eilish’s third album, Hit Me Hard and Soft was released in April and debuting at #2 on the Billboard 200.
