Some listeners know this vocalist from songs like “Bad Guy” and “Bury a Friend.” Eilish first burst onto the music scene with her song “Ocean Eyes.” Then, she released her album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go, earning international recognition for her unique songwriting process and music videos. 

In 2021, the artist debuted her second full-length album. That was Happier Than Ever, complete with hues of gold and beige. Eilish even performed a live/cartoon version of this album in conjunction with Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+. 

That was the exclusive original production Happier than Ever: A Love Letter to Los Angeles, which featured guest appearances from singer-songwriter FINNEAS and the Los Angeles Children’s Chorus.

What is Billie Eilish’s most famous song from 2021?

There are several well-known songs from Eilish’s Happier Than Ever. That includes “Lost Cause,” “My Future,” “Billie Bossa Nova,” and “Your Power,” some of which even became music videos featuring the artist.

The most popular song from this recently released album, the title track “Happier Than Ever,” holds over 410 million plays on Spotify. That far surpasses the streaming number of songs like “NDA” and “Everybody Dies.” It’s this track that also earned Eilish the Grammy nomination for Song of the Year.

However, based on the number of Spotify plays, Eilish’s most popular song from Happier Than Ever is “Therefore I Am.” The track sits at over 520 million streams, skyrocketing from the No. 94 spot to No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100. (Technically, this song was released ahead of Happier Than Ever, as was “My Future.” That could contribute to the track’s high Spotify plays.)

Eilish’s song with the highest number of Spotify streams remains her 2019 hit “Bad Guy,” which holds almost 2 billion plays as of December 2021.

In addition to Song of the Year, Eilish earned several Grammy nominations for the 2022 ceremony. That includes Album Of The Year, Record Of The Year, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album.

Of course, Eilish is known for her record-breaking wins at the 2020 Grammy Award ceremony. That’s thanks to songs released in conjunction with When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go. She became the youngest artist in Grammy history to take home wins for Best New Artist, Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year.
