Eilish then signed a deal with Interscope Records and steadily gained more and more fans as she continued releasing new music with the help of her brother.

She became the first artist of the 2000s to have a number-one album in the United States as well as the youngest woman to ever debut at number one in the United Kingdom. She also broke the record for having the most songs simultaneously charting the Hot 100 by a female artist.
She began her tour for the album at the 2019 Coachella Festival in California which concluded in Mexico City in November.

At the age of 17, she became the youngest artist to have been nominated in all four of the General Field categories. At the 2020 Grammy Awards, she won all four categories, becoming the first woman and the youngest person to ever do so. It was also announced in 2020 that Eilish would perform the title track for the newest James Bond film, "No Time to Die," which was to be written and produced by her brother.
