If everybody dropped dead right now and I didn’t I would be left with what I created myself, and what the hell would the point be if I was just creating something that somebody else wanted me to create,” said Eilish in an interview with Vanity Fair.

Between the months of October in 2017 and 2018, the artist had gained over 6 million followers and continues to grow today. includes songs such as “Bury a Friend” that is her take on her mind and being the monster under her bed.

The songs she creates are ways for her followers to see inside her and ask themselves the questions she tries to answer herself. Her music is dark and different from any other artist, because of the edge she puts into her work and how personal she makes each of her pieces.

People love her, because she is authentic and sings what she truly feels, not what others want her to feel.
