Everything we wanted: the race to find the next Billie Eilish

The search for ‘the new Billie’ is undoubtedly under way. But how will record labels attempt to replicate her success?

Yet her path to success, despite her youth, was a long one. Eilish was in stealth development since barely entering her teens, putting Ocean Eyes online in 2015 and signing to A&R hothouse Platoon (subsequently acquired by Apple), whose alumni also include Stefflon Don, Rex Orange County and Jorja Smith. She was swiftly signed by Interscope (part of Universal), and the huge machine around her was developing her as an album artist from the off, going against the prevailing streaming logic.

There is plenty of help at hand. Companies such as Chartmetric can make sense of the tornado of data around acts in the digital age, slicing and dicing the numbers to try to predict not only who will break next, but also where. So where could the “next Billie” bubble up? Cover versions on YouTube and the ukuleleisation of pop now lie in a shallow grave of twee; SoundCloud has lost its urgency, the flat punchline when a tweet goes unexpectedly viral (“I dont have a soundcloud to check out”); and TikTok, for now, can’t quite be brought to heel in a way the major labels would prefer, although that will likely soon change and it will be choked by contrived virality.

The race to find another talentless child. Just delete this post already.. There will be no next. There will be more better and more interesting artist than Billie Eilish Coming in future. I'm volunteering There is no 'next Billie Eilish', Billie and Finneas are definitely very unique and they are here to stay.

And I oop- Or how about we don't continue to perpetuate the idea that women expire and have to keep changing and evolving to be interesting enough for the public. She's a kid. This is exactly the kind of toxic anti woman rhetoric that was in Taylor Swift's documentary. This article is lame, searching for 'the next' of any artist, and then calling music a copy of the past 😂😂😂 Billie and Finneas are the original version of themselves, it's all we need

I hate people! There’s only one Billie Eilish and about a billion fuckin haters! No one will ever replace her. There’s a reason why she rose to fame as quick as she did and why so many adore her. She’s one of a kind don’t hit my with that bs Orrrrr just let new young up and comers make their own names and not pressure them to compare to someone who is where they are trying to be one day. It doesn't need to be a race, there can be many greats!

Not exactly the same way that she is, but you can find some one more Fierce here awaits 💍🐝 Why yall want another? Shes still alive lol smh Guys isn't this article just commenting on how record labels will be racing to find someone who can gain the same kind of following and make the same kind of money, I don't believe they are saying that she isn't unique , simply that money hungry people look at her and want that.

Geez talking about her like she is dead Feck of Wow already? Billie just came up and she's gonna be here for another 15 years. You better get ready for it. Yo calm tf down, shes still here ''tHe NeXt BiLlIe EiLiSh'' Billie is one of a kind and like, frfr? There is only one billie and Finneas and you should focus on the beautiful work that is being produced now and not on the “next” what a horrendous article pure nonsense

Thats funny that you think there could ever be another Billie Eilish. 😂😒 shes one of a kind. there wont be another. What the hell!!! How dare you!! Everything you wanted? To tear down an amazing person by claiming she can be replaced or someone else is better!! Shame on you shame on you!!!! Never heard of him.

Language like this is how we can be certain the media does not see artists as human beings but rather spectacles to be exploited at any cost. This is the problem with the entire entertainment industry. When something unique becomes unexpectedly successful, they try to imitate it ad nauseum until people get sick of it.

Pick me xD Lorde is the supreme There's not other, honey. Why do people always do this. I thought we all knew that's bullshit by now.

Hayley Williams says she will ‘beat up’ anyone who upsets Billie EilishIt comes after Eilish opened up about her struggles with trolls ‘ruining her life’ Queens supporting queens Lol

why the fuck is there always a need to find the next xxx just appreciate the ones you already got, ITS LIKE THIS FOR EVERY ARTIST OUT THERE they are all one of the kind, chill the f*ck out and appreciate her and her talent and her music please and sh*t up She is just 18 lmao Billie and Finneas are both one of kind. No one would be able to replicate anything they’ve done

Am I the only one who thinks most people misunderstood the article..I mean its talking about how many of the RIVAL labels now want to COPY Billie's strategy to success..Remember Billie's manager is part of this discussion Did you mean *“next Billie Eilish Song?” Shut the f Stop kidding around people, the next Billie eilish will be her baby.. 🤣

Don’t shit on creativity or try to replicate it falsely Don't be surprised when there are half a dozen just like her by the end of the year... the next one y’all do realize she just won best n e w artist right?

Why yall so quick to replace sum that's not broke home girl started only 3 or 4 years ago lmao calm down but. she's still alive and making music. why are y'all wanting to find 'the next' billie eilish when she's Still Here

Bro she’s like 18 and y’all already trying to replace her? I don’t even listen to her but damn. Did any of you actually read the article lol no... let billie eilish be billie eilish what lol The rush to replace someone original and not easily controlled are u serious ? wtf does that even mean Sis... y’all- y’all dumb for dat

The next? She’s 18, she’s not washed up yet 🙄 she’s just getting started She has a beautiful voice and shows true passion in here lyrics Isn’t she like 18? We already need a new one? The fuck?

we don’t want another there’s not gonna be “another” stop She’s still like 18 and has been in the business for like 2 yrs and y’all already trying to find her replacement She hasn’t even been making music for a decade damn let her shine Bruh. Just put somebody on drugs The industry is fuckin weird man she’s literally just starting and they’re already looking for a clone?

Wtf, she is so unique The fact that y’all think Billie Eilish is unique is weird as hell. ? she’s not gone there’s no need for a “next” lmao she’s still around damn calm down

It’s like you think of what the worst thing to tweet is... and then you tweet it Why would u want to have a copy of a copy Absolutely she is one of a kind! Stop trying to find “the next” of original artists. Billies career just began why would we want another one of her so soon anyway? Why the fuck would be a next 'Billie Eilish'? The poor girl JUST started!

Why do we need to find “the next Billie Eilish”? Why can’t we just appreciate her now instead of looking for someone to replace her. just find another teenager with rich parents already in the industry is isn't that hard She JUST started her career please let her be successful without tryna replace her

i don’t even like this bitch but why tf they tryna replace her so fast like?

Imagine a newspaper saying your career was over at 18. Billie is a rare gift to the wrld, there can never be another like her, her music is very real and touches the deepest part of your soul. 💯 Am sure you can find a teenager with a cuntin lazy accent wtf bro Stop calling artists “the next *other artist*,” they’re people. They’re their own beings.

And the new James Bond song was the most boring song of the Brits2020 Harry Styles song was a very close 2nd Freshness fact: The next Billie Eilish will not the next Billie Eilish!
