Billie Eilish is the “Bad Guy” with 1 billion views!
The music video for her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 single, which premiered on March 29, 2019, officially crossed over to join YouTube’s elite billion-views club Wednesday (Nov. 11). And Eilish is pretty excited about it.
“AYYYEEEEE BAD GUY HIT A BILLI,” the 18-year-old pop superstar wrote on her Instagram Story with a screenshot of the YouTube page.
Her brand new single, “Therefore I Am,” is set to drop Thursday (Nov. 12), following “My Future” from this summer and new James Bond theme “No Time to Die” in February.
“I’M SO EXCITED FOR THIS ONE,” she shared on Instagram about her upcoming song. Eilish’s brother and producer, Finneas, also posted about the news on his Instagram Story, writing, “Not to toot our own horn but this song is f–king sick.”
Eilish had just kicked off a major “Where Do We Go?” world tour in early March when the global coronavirus pandemic brought what would’ve been her lengthy road trip to an end. The tour was scheduled to wrap up at the end of July. Since she couldn’t tour, the 18-year-old did a livestream show for fans in October.

AC/DC are definitely ready to rock you. The veteran Australian band dropped the raucous “Realize” on Wednesday (Nov. 11), the second single from their anticipated 17th studio album, Power Up, due out on Friday (Nov. 13).
The group’s first new music since 2014 finds them reuniting with producer Brendan O’Brien, who was behind the boards for 2008’s Black Ice and 2014’s Rock or Bust.
The thumping “Realize,” written by guitarist Angus Young and late brother rhythm guitarist Malcolm Young, finds singer Brian Johnson getting his groove on over the band’s signature hard-thumping attack. Like most AC/DC songs, the message isn’t subtle. “Those moments just pass you by/ Gonna take you to paradise/ Move it/ Make you prove it, yeah/ Breakin’ out/ Break it down/ Feel the chill, feel the chill/ Movin’ down your spine,” he sings over Angus’ giant riffs and back-in-the-fold drummer Phil Rudd’s booming kit.
The band’s current line-up also features Malcolm Young’s nephew, Stevie Young, taking on the rhythm guitar spot and singer Johnson back in his spot after taking some time away to deal with hearing loss issues.

Britney Spears’ “Swimming In the Stars” record has never seen the light of day until Wednesday (Nov. 11).
The never-before-released single is exclusively available as a 12″ vinyl single at Urban Outfitters, which is celebrating 11/11 Singles Day by releasing “Swimming In the Stars” and 10 more songs as UO Exclusive Singles.
Other songs being pressed to vinyl for the special occasion (some for the first time ever) include Billie Eilish’s “Everything I Wanted,” Demi Lovato’s “I Love Me” and “Still Have Me,” Doja Cat’s “Freak,” Fifth Harmony’s “Work From Home,” Joji’s “Gimme Love,” Jonas Brothers’ “X,” Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl (MTV Unplugged Version),” Megan Thee Stallion’s “Savage,” feat. Beyoncé, Shawn Mendes’ “Wonder,” and Wallows’ “OK.”
Spears’ single will exclusively be available for purchase at the online and in-store retailer two weeks before heading to digital and streaming platforms. Though you can order it today, the single won’t be shipping until Jan. 15. Her most recent album, Glory, was released in August 2016.
The news of her previously unreleased single dropping comes one day after Spears’ attorney said in court that the 38-year-old pop star “will not perform again” if her father, Jamie Spears, continues to control her life and career as part of the conservatorship put in place since 2008. The singer had requested Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny to remove her father from his central role, but the judge denied her request.
