Without a doubt, 2019 has been Billie Eilish's biggest year yet -- and she has one more accomplishment to earn before her 18th birthday next month: Eilish will be named 2019 Woman of the Year at Billboard's Women in Music event on Dec. 12.
“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."
Back in August, the young hitmaker -- the youngest artist ever named Billboard's Woman of the Year -- managed to dethrone the longest-running No. 1 hit in the history of the Billboard Hot 100 (19-week leader "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X, featuring Billy Ray Cyrus) when "Bad Guy" crowned the chart. Her album When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? debuted atop the Billboard 200 in April, making her the first artist born this century to have a No. 1 album on the chart.
