After years of online success and large YouTube streaming numbers, Eilish’s debut album was highly anticipated by her cult following fan base. With hit singles such as ‘You Should See Me in a Crown’, ‘Bad Guy’ and ‘When the Party’s Over’ included on the album, it became a major critical and commercial success.
Now, as Spotify reveals its end of year streaming data, they have confirmed that 17-year-old Eilish has dominated the album category over the past 12 months. Being the second most streamed artist as a whole, Eilish’s debut album surpassed 6 billion streams. The huge figure also marks the first time a female artist has ended Spotify’s end of year lists in the album category.
It doesn’t end their, either. Eilish’s hit track ‘Bad Guy’ also ranks as the second-most-streamed song of the year.
