Billie Eilish’s first song, ‘Ocean Eyes’, has managed to surpass 300 million views on YouTube.
‘Ocean Eyes’ is the origin of the Billie Eilish phenomenon. It all started when the young artist was 13 years old, although she was already composing and singing since she was 11. One of her dance teachers wanted an original song for a performance and gave Billie Eilish the task.
So she chose ‘Ocean Eyes’, a song that her brother Finneas composed. After the school performance the brothers uploaded the single to SoundCloudy, without imagining that ‘Ocean Eyes’ would become a viral hit.
