Billie Eilish And Finneas To Perform Virtual Concert In Support Of Small Businesses

Billie Eilish live-streamed an intimate show from home with her brother Finneas on Wednesday (April 22) as part of Verizon’s Pay It Forward series.

During the nearly hour-long set, the two siblings spoke about the importance of supporting small businesses during the coronavirus pandemic, thanks to adorable cue cards written by their mother.

We are encouraging viewers to support their favorite local businesses during this tough time; today, we’re giving extra focus to green and sustainable businesses,” Finneas said to kick off the performance. “I guess, to me, tying this back to Earth Day, the things that are sustainable are the things that are the most important in life, cause they’re the things that are gonna carry us forward and lead to a brighter future.

With that, Eilish kicked off her performance with her 2019 single “All the Good Girls Go to Hell,” hilariously clarifying beforehand that “as much as people wanna believe that this song is about me being a devil worshiper and being Satan, it’s not about that. It’s about global warming.

The pop star and her brother/constant collaborator also played through a number of their respective hits, including “Ilomilo,” “Bad Guy” and “Everything I Wanted” by Eilish, as well as Finneas’ “Let’s Fall in Love for the Night,” “I Don’t Miss You At All” and “Break My Heart Again.”

Rosalia Says Billie Eilish Collaboration Is ‘Almost Done,’ Talks ‘Super Aggressive’ New Song With Travis Scott

Rosalia Says Billie Eilish Collaboration Is ‘Almost Done,’ Talks ‘Super Aggressive’ New Song With Travis Scott

Billie Eilish has collaborated with artists ranging from Vince Staples and Khalid to Justin Bieber, but two of the most tantalizing collaborations she’s done — rising Spanish singer Rosalia and Canadian-Colombian artist Jessie Reyez — have yet to see the light of day.

While the Reyez collaboration Eilish detailed to Variety last fall did not appear on Reyez’s excellent new album, “Before Love Came to Kill Us,” Rosalia provided an update on her collaboration with Billie and her brother-cowriter/producer Finneas — which was first revealed in a Rolling Stone interview back in June — on Beats 1 in an interview airing today.

Rosalia, who is currently sheltering in place in Miami, spoke of the ways she’s been filling her quarantine time.

“I feel like there’s so many things going on it’s hard to focus, but at the same time I feel blessed that I’m at home, that I’m safe, and that I can make music and I have all this time,” she says. “I have this little studio here in one room. I have the basics like a midi keyboard, a computer, a mic, and I try to do all the vocal production for the next record.

“During these two last weeks I have been trying to finish the Billie Eilish collab,” she continues. “I think it’s getting quite closer. I think that the arrangements, I think that yesterday I finished the arrangements. I feel like the production, the sound design, is almost done, so I just need that Billie maybe sends the vocals and they send me the ideas that they want to add because we are there.”

Rosalia, who has released a series of singles following her breakthrough 2018 album “El Mal Querer,” also said she nearly released a collaboration with Travis Scott last month. Rosalia guested on Scott’s “Highest in the Room” last year, but this is a different, “super aggressive” track.

“I was supposed to release a song with him last month that is for the clubs — super aggressive — that I’ve been working on for a really long time. [But] it has, I don’t know, an energy, that is so specific for a certain moment, that I didn’t feel like it was right to release, and I didn’t feel like it was connected with what was going on in the world in that moment.

“I was really worried about, ‘Okay, what’s my next [move]? I’m in Miami, but my family’s in Spain. I don’t know what’s going to happen in the world. What’s going on?’ [So] I decided to stop everything. I had a lot of fun with him in studio, and I love his energy and I love working with him, [but] I said, ‘No. I need to release something different.’ So I decided to work on a song that I was working on months ago that I started with Frank Dukes, and I finished ‘Dolerme,’” which was released late last month.
