Two weeks ago, the 17-year-old “Bad Guy” singer shared on her Instagram story a video of herself singing along to “Agege” by Tekno.
Eilish is most known for her 2019 single “Bad Guy”, which topped the Billboard Hot 100, breaking Lil Nas X’s 19-week run of “Old Town Road”. She is the seventh most-streamed artist of 2019, according to Statistica.
She has been nominated for six Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist. She is the youngest artist ever to have been nominated for the Big Four Grammy Awards.
