After conquering the 2019 American Music Awards with numerous awards, Billie Eilish is all set to add another accomplishment to her list by becoming the youngest female musician to get her hands on Billboard’s Woman of the Year award.   

According to Billboard, the 17-year-old musician will be receiving the coveted award at the Billboard’s Women in Music event on Dec. 12, which means she will be adding one more accolade to her name just six days before turning 18.  

Hannah Karp, Billboard’s Editorial Director, announced the singer’s name and shared how Eilish has  influenced a lot of people through her music. Karp also noted that the singer has managed to disrupt the entertainment industry though her music and her presence across all social media platforms.

She also explained how effectively the “Everything I Wanted” hitmaker has managed to tell her story through her songs in an amazing way.

“Her ability to speak to the Gen-Z population, making teens and young adults feel accepted in today’s society has quickly allowed Eilish to grow to the top of the charts,” Karp said.

The editorial director of Billboard concluded by saying that Eilish has made an “indelible impact” on the defining mood of this period. But most importantly, the musician has broken the “mold” for this generation by her amazing hair colors and quirky attitude. 

The “Bury A Friend” singer joins the elite list of women like Taylor Swift (2011 and 2014), Lady Gaga (2015), Madonna (2016), Selena Gomez (2017), and Ariana Grande (2018) who have been the recipient of the prestigious award.  

Joining Eilish at the ceremony is Swift, who has been announced as Billboard’s first Woman of the Decade.

It has been a great year for Eilish in the music industry. She also holds the record of having 14 titles on the Hot 100 list and is currently the most-streamed female artist with more than six billion on-demand streams. The “Copycat” hitmaker also became the first musician born in the 2000s to have a number one album in the Billboard 200, earlier this year.

She also won 3 awards in recently held American Music Awards. The breakout star took home the trophies for Favorite Artist, Alternative Rock, and New Artist of the Year.  

Additionally, the 17-year-old also made history by becoming the youngest nominee ever to garner nominations in all of the Grammys four major categories. She is nominated for six Grammys, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best Solo Performance.
