Billie Eilish has been making music since she was 13 years old. Now, at 21, she’s one of the most successful solo artists of this time. Since she made her debut with the single ‘Ocean Eyes,’ Eilish has sold 45.5 million digital singles and over 5 million albums across the world.
Due to her success, Billie Eilish has amassed an impressive net worth. In fact, in 2020, she became the youngest person to be featured on the Forbes Celebrity 100 list, with earnings of over $53 million that year alone! When she was only 17, Eilish made a massive investment worth more than $2 million. However, her net worth was barely affected by this purchase.
Billie Eilish’s Massive Net Worth Is Thanks To Her Music Career
Over the years, Billie Eilish has impressively built a net worth of $30 million and still continues to add to it. Most of her wealth has come from her music. Between 2019 and 2020 alone, Eilish reportedly earned $50 million, half of those earnings came from an Apple TV documentary about her life, but the rest came mainly from album and concert tickets.
Eilish is also adding to her massive net worth by venturing into writing songs and producing music both for herself and other artists. Along with her brother, Finneas O’Connell, Eilish has produced music for blockbusters such as the James Bond film No Time to Die, Pixar’s Turning Red and Barbie. She also collaborated with Rosalia for the song ‘You Will Forget It,’ which was featured in HBO’s Euphoria soundtrack in 2021.
In addition to music, Eilish is making millions as an ambassador for several well-known brands. In 2019, she collaborated with Calvin Klein for that year’s #MyCalvins ad campaign. Three years later, she partnered with Gucci for their spring 2022 Eyewear campaign. She also makes around $205,309 – $342,265 per every sponsored ad she posts on social media.
Billie Eilish Continues To Add To Her Massive Net Worth With Several Business Ventures
In addition to her unique voice and heartfelt lyrics, Billie Eilish quickly gained recognition for her characteristic style. In 2019, the singer used this to her advantage and launched her own clothing line in collaboration with Freak City. The capsule collection consisted only of ten pieces, ranging in price from $40 to $90, but quickly sold out, becoming one of Eilish’s most successful business ventures to date.
In addition to Freak City, Eilish has also collaborated with world-renowned brands such as Nike to launch a new line of sneakers. The artist also makes millions every year thanks to merch sales on her official website.
After a successful venture in the fashion world, Eilish decided to invest in beauty products. In 2021, the singer launched a vegan and cruelty-free perfume line called Eilish. “Perfumes have been one of my greatest joys in life, and I’ve always wanted to make one,” the singer told Vogue upon the launch of her fragrance. “And not as Billie Eilish, not as an artist, not as a singer; I wanted to make a perfume to have a perfume. It has nothing to do with me, I’m just branding it so that people see it.”
After the high demand for this product, she recently released a second perfume, Eilish No. 2. While exact figures remain undisclosed, industry sources reported that Eilish’s fragrance was projected to make approximately $60 million in sales during its inaugural year. It’s no wonder the singer is able to maintain an impressive net worth at such a young age.
Billie Eilish’s $2.3 Million Home Is One Of Her Biggest Investments To Date
During the early stages of her career, Billie Eilish lived at home with her parents, although she could have easily bought herself any property she wanted. In 2019, Eilish gave a tour of her parent’s Highland Park home while appearing on the Carpool Karaoke segment of The Late Show with James Corden. “Just, like, being around my parents all the time — even on tour, my parents are there,” she said. “My entire family, besides my dog and my cat and my spider, we’re all on tour together,” the star admitted at the time.
However, in 2021, the ‘What Was I Made For?’ singer hinted that she had finally moved out from her parent’s place. “It’s been a couple of years now where I’ve been doing my own thing. But secretly, because nobody needs to know that,” Billie told Rolling Stone, noting that despite having her own place, she still spends a lot of time at her original home. “I just love my parents, so I want to be around them.”
The home Eilish is referring to is the Glendale horse ranch she secretly bought for $2.3 million back in 2019. Fans didn’t know about this purchase until the singer released the song ‘NDA’ in 2021. “I bought a secret house when I was 17, haven’t had a party since I got the keys,” the lyrics of this song claim.
The 2,100-square-foot ranch in question used to belong to X-Factor winner Leona Lewis. After purchasing the property in 2013, Lewis carried out extensive renovation work, including remodeling the swimming pool and kitchen. All in all, the property has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a separate guesthouse, a horse keeper’s apartment, a paddock, four stables, and an arena and feeding area for horses. It’s no wonder Billie Eilish bought this place. After all, the singer had previously admitted that horses and equestrian riding are two of her “favourite things in the world.”
