Billie EIlish can now add another accolade to her resume – becoming the third and youngest artist ever to cross the coveted 100 million monthly listener mark on Spotify.

At just 22 years old, Eilish joins an elite club that includes superstars The Weeknd and Taylor Swift as the only acts to achieve this streaming summit.
