As of this morning, she is the youngest artist to write and record a James Bond theme song. Co-writing the song with her brother, Finneas O’Connell, it is rumored we can expect their track in the upcoming James Bond film No Time To Die.

Eilish is joining the elite list of 007 singers including Sam Smith, Adele, Paul McCartney, Madonna, Duran Duran, and Tina Turner. Adele’s “Skyfall” and Smith’s “Writing’s on the Wall” have won the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Will Eilish’s song rise to the level of these artists?

For Now, Eilish is nominated for six Grammys: Album of The Year, Song of The Year, Best New Artist, Record of The Year, Best Pop Vocal, and Best Pop Solo Performance.

She is set to perform at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards on Jan. 26, where she is expected to take home at least a couple of trophies. Her rise to stardom is only just beginning.
