Newcomer Billie Eilish, 17, was named hitmaker of the year by Variety magazine. She will be honored at the annual Hitmakers Brunch ceremony on December 7 in Los Angeles. Because of this, the teenager will also print the cover of the magazine on December 4, with an exclusive interview and a new photo shoot.
Variety’s Hitmakers Brunch recognizes the highlights of the year in music – both singers and songwriters, producers, entrepreneurs, executives, record labels. In addition to Billie, other names were chosen for the 2019 honors, such as BTS, voted best group, and Ellie Goulding, voted artist of the decade.
