Billie Eilish has already had quite a year. She was nominated for a number of Grammy Awards and recently won her first pair of American Music Awards. The accolades will not stop there as Billboard announced that Eilish will be named 2019 Woman of the Year at Billboard's Women in Music event on Dec. 12.
The tribute seems appropriate since Eilish not only reached No. 1 on the Hot 100, but she also became the first artist born this century to have a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200.
“Billie has disrupted the entertainment industry through her music and social media platforms, leaving an indelible impact on the global cultural zeitgeist,” says Hannah Karp, Billboard’s Editorial Director. “Her ability to speak to the Gen-Z population, making teens and young adults feel accepted in today’s society has quickly allowed Eilish to grow to the top of the charts, breaking the mold for this generation with her electric hair-color and sharp attitude."
Eilish joins the ranks of previous Woman of the Year honorees like fellow Chase Center artist Ariana Grande, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift and more.
