Billie Eilish “Barbie” Song on Fast Track to Number 1 After Golden Globe Win Last Night


What was she made for? Hits, apparently.

Billie Eilish is on the fast track to number 1 with her “Barbie” song “What Was I Made For?”

After winning the Golden Globe last night for Best Song, “What Was I Made For?” shot right up the iTunes chart. It’s number 3 right now and flirting with the top position.

The song is co-written by Billie and brother Finneas O’Connell, who doesn’t get enough credit as a musician or composer of the duo’s songs.

“What Was I Made For?” is also on the fast track to the Oscars. If it wins Best Song there, the brother sister team will have two Oscars on their shelves — not bad considering their relative youth. These two are going to be around for a long time!
