Billie Eilish, 21, had another huge year in 2023. The musician made her acting debut in Amazon Prime Video's Swarm in March, and then hit it big with her single, featured on the Barbie soundtrack, "What Was I Made For?"And when I say "hit," I mean the song literally peaked at number 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts (BRB, anxiously awaiting the Grammy nominations).

A massively successful year is, TBH, not that surprising for an artist like Billie. The singer has been a household name since releasing "bad guy"in 2019, and her career pans back even further. She uploaded her first song to SoundCloud in 2016 at just 14 years old, per Vox. When her song, "ocean eyes," went viral that year, it proved to be just the beginning. This rocker doesn't appear to be slowing down any time soon.

With all of her success, it's natural to wonder how Billie's career pans out on the cash front. Below, read everything to know about the star's net worth, and how she makes her income.

She made her acting debut this year.

ICYMI, Billie had a pretty big part in Amazon Prime Video's new movie, Swarm, playing the character of Eva. The singer's income from the show itself is not publicly known, but the film's budget was about $30 million, per The Hollywood Reporter, so she wasn't earning petty cash!

She has some hefty brand endorsements.

Throughout her career, Billie has done some cool brand collaborations, and has tons of endorsements. Some of her most notable side projects include her Billie X Nike collection, which features shoes and clothing. More recently, she's partnered with Gucci for an eyewear line (among promoting some other pieces, per Billie's IG).

Oh, and she has her own fragrance line—Eilish—which includes three perfumes, a candle, a shower gel, and body lotion.

She published a book.

Billie Eilish


Billie released a photograph book, Billie Eilish, which sold over 64,00 copies between May 2021 (its release month) and December 2021. Eilish reportedly got a $1 million advance for the project, according to the New York Times.

The volume includes never-before-seen photographs of Billie's childhood, as well as some of her documentation of her life on tour. And speaking of Billie's tour...

Billie has probably earned millions from touring.

Every music fan knows that an artist's main money maker is touring—and Billie is no exception. While the onset of the COVID pandemic slowed down her earnings a little bit (Forbes estimates she would've made much more had she not postponed her tour in March 2020). Billie's tours have allegedly earned her over $150 million, but that number cannot be verified independently at this time.

Billie Eilish has earned tons from her albums and singles.

So far, Billie has released two studio albums: When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? in 2019, and Happier Than Ever in 2021. Her debut album was a breakout hit, and the number one selling album of its release year.

What's more, Billie has also released an EP, Don't Smile At Me (2017), and several one-off singles, including "What Was I Made For?" for Barbie and "Everything I Wanted," the latter of which reached number eight on the Billboard Hot 100. She's had over 20 platinum rated singles, per RIAA, and "bad guy"reached diamond status in July 2023, with over 10 million units sold.

Billie Eilish earned $25 million from her documentary with Apple.

In 2021, Billie released a documentary dedicated to her seemingly quick rise in fame titled Billie Eilish: The World's A Little Blurry. The film was the subject of a bidding war between streamers, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, and the musician earned around $25 million from the deal she made with AppleTV, per Forbes.

How much is Billie Eilish's real estate worth?

Billie sings of a certain secret house in her song "NDA," but sadly the star's real estate portfolio is not publicly known.

So it's TBD on this front!

What is Billie Eilish's net worth?

Forbes estimates that Billie Eilish's net worth in 2020 alone was around $53 million. Now, Celebrity Net Worth clocks her in at around $30 million. Her brother, Finneas, who is the singer's main collaborator, is worth about $20 million, per Celebrity Net Worth.

BTW, she was listed on Forbes 30 under 30 celebrity list in 2019, and was the list's youngest member, being just 18 years old at the time. Call that a Billie "Boss"-a Nova!
