Billie Eilish and Denzel Curry
For better or worse, alt-indie heroine Billie Eilish is one of this year’s most buzzed-about artists, with a debut album premiering at the end of March courtesy of Interscope/Darkroom Records, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? Her inescapable single for “Bury a Friend” has so far racked up over 50 million streams, and the just-released video directed by Michael Chaves is at this writing the number one trending clip on YouTube, with 23 million views and climbing. Her 2017 Don’t Smile at Me EP is almost inconceivably successful for a 17 year-old newcomer, reportedly bringing tracks such as “Ocean Eyes,” “Bellyache,” “Idontwannabeyouanymore” and “Watch” over five billion-with-a-B combined global streams and remaining in the Billboard Top 200 for more than 18 months now. All the online exposure has helped make her one of the most anticipated performers slated to debut at Coachella in April, after which she’ll embark on an album support tour that wraps in San Diego at SDSU’s Open Air Theatre on July 13. Also appearing will be Florida rapper Denzel Curry, whose third studio album from last year included a guest appearance by Eilish.
