Late Late Show guest host Alicia Keys turns her interview area into a performance space, inviting her guest Billie Eilish to perform her hit song “Ocean Eyes” as a duet for the all-female Stage 56 audience.
Billie Eilish is an American singer and songwriter. Born and raised in Highland Park, Los Angeles, she began singing at a young age. She gained a following in 2016, when she released her single “Ocean Eyes” on SoundCloud, subsequently released on the record labels Darkroom and Interscope Records. The song was written and produced by her brother Finneas, with whom she collaborates on music and live shows. Eilish is most known for her 2019 single “Bad Guy”, which topped the Billboard Hot 100. She has been nominated for six Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Best New Artist. She is the youngest artist ever to have been nominated for the Big Four Grammy Awards.
Her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me (2017), reached the top 15 in the US, UK, Canada and Australia. Eilish collaborated with American singer Khalid for the single “Lovely”, released in April 2018, and added to the soundtrack for the second season of 13 Reasons Why. Her debut studio album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019), debuted atop the Billboard 200 and became the best-performing album of 2019 in the U.S., as well as reaching number one in the UK, Canada and Australia. The album contained four Billboard Hot 100 top 40 singles: “When the Party’s Over”, “Bury a Friend”, “Wish You Were Gay”, and “Bad Guy”, the last of which became her first number-one single in the US. She is the first and, to date, only artist born in the 2000s to record a number-one single in the US. Eilish has eight gold and four platinum singles in the US.
Alicia Keys is an American musician, singer, and songwriter. A classically-trained pianist, Keys was composing songs by age 12 and was signed at 15 years old by Columbia Records. After disputes with the label, she signed with Arista Records, and later released her debut album, Songs in A Minor, with J Records in 2001. The album was critically and commercially successful, producing her first Billboard Hot 100 number-one single “Fallin'” and selling over 16 million copies worldwide. The album earned Keys five Grammy Awards in 2002. Her second album, The Diary of Alicia Keys (2003), was also a critical and commercial success, spawning successful singles “You Don’t Know My Name”, “If I Ain’t Got You”, and “Diary”, and selling eight million copies worldwide. The album garnered her an additional four Grammy Awards. Her duet “My Boo” with Usher became her second number-one single in 2004. Keys released her first live album, Unplugged (2005), and became the first woman to have an MTV Unplugged album debut at number one.
Her third album, As I Am (2007), produced the Hot 100 number-one single “No One”, selling 7 million copies worldwide and earning an additional three Grammy Awards. In 2007, Keys made her film debut in the action-thriller film Smokin’ Aces. She, along with Jack White, recorded “Another Way to Die” (the title song to the 22nd official James Bond film, Quantum of Solace). Her fourth album, The Element of Freedom (2009), became her first chart-topping album in the UK, and sold 4 million copies worldwide. In 2009, Keys also collaborated with Jay Z on “Empire State of Mind”, which became her fourth number-one single and won the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
