Today marks the release of Vevo's second LIFT installment featuring Billie Eilish; an intimate live performance of her single "bitches broken hearts." Vevo's LIFT initiative connects today's rising stars to audiences around the globe with original creative content. Vevo is releasing installments each week of performances and behind-the-scenes footage, bringing fans closer to the pop artist than ever before. Last week saw the release of Eilish's exclusive live performance of "you should see me in a crown" in conjunction with the announcement of their partnership. The first two videos of the series are streaming now at youtube.com/BillieEilishVEVO.
Regarding Elish's selection for the LIFT series, Vevo Head of Content JP Evangelista tells Billboard, "We have been following Billie's career for some time at Vevo, and it has been a pleasure to be part of her journey since we named her as one of our 'Artists to Watch' in 2017...her Vevo LIFT content gives fans a way to connect with her through some truly amazing and unique performances, and we are excited to share these with her fans."
After spending much of this year making several high-profile festival appearances, Billie's debut EP has amassed more than 750 million combined streams worldwide and singles "ocean eyes" and "lovely (with Khalid)" have both been certified RIAA GOLD in North America. Eilish was initially part of Vevo's Artist to Watch program in 2017, showcasing special interviews and performances of her breakout material, and since then Vevo has been supporting her journey.
