Billie Eilish

It's hard to find a pop star with a more impressive early career run than Billie Eilish. The 22-year-old started out just five years ago with the release of her first album, When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, which snatched up five Grammys including a sweep of all four of the major categories. Just two years later, Eilish and her collaborator/brother Finneas O'Connell earned plenty of additional Grammy noms for her second album, Happier Than Ever. Since then, Eilish has become the youngest person ever to win two Oscars, snatching trophies for tracks on both the No Time to Die and Barbie soundtracks. Rarely has someone earned so much critical acclaim so early in her career, so all eyes are on Eilish's third studio album, Hit Me Hard and Soft, which she has worked on with her brother.

While Eilish did play snippets of several songs off Hit Me Hard and Soft while at Coachella, she's yet to release any singles off the new album. We know very little so far about BE3, but fans are clamoring for the new tracks and it's likely to be a sensation when it is released in May.
