Billie Eilish is one of the best pop stars in the world, and she’s only just getting started. An unavoidable fact is that she’s only 16 and is already catching millions of fans with her music. Don’t let her age be the focal point here, that should be her brave and unapologetically different pop style.

Currently working on her debut album, Billie has already broken records all over the world, including in Australia where she’s from. Her debut EP has hit over three billion streams worldwide. And across here in the UK, she’s already been the first ever international artist awarded the BRIT Breakthrough Artist.

It’s all coming together quickly for Billie and we feel that she’s an extremely well-loved character across student radio and, more generally, for students in the UK. We’re proud to have her on our list.

Polydor Records had this to say about Billie Eilish being included in the SRA Class of 2019:

Billie is the voice of a generation and the most exciting young artist in the world at the moment. Polydor are delighted Billie is in the Student Radio Class of 2019. She resonates with the student audience like no other artist.

By making our SRA Class of 2019, student radio across the UK will consider all of Billie’s future singles for airplay. Billie will also get guaranteed support from our SRA Chart & streaming playlists.
