The 2020 Grammys belonged to a then-18-yearold Eilish, who swept the Big Four categories, led by an album of the year victory for debut full-length When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? She has the chance to win again in all of them but best new artist in 2022, thanks to her second set, Happier Than Ever (and its song- and record of the year-nominated title track). The album, heavily inspired by unhealthy relationships in both Eilish’s personal and professional lives in the years following her breakout, returned the prodigious singer-songwriter (again writing with and produced by brother FINNEAS) to the top of the Billboard 200, staying there for three weeks. The set also earned rave reviews for the growth it displayed, not only in Eilish’s songwriting and vocal performance but in her musical evolution — including explorations into genres such as bossa nova, lounge pop and house.
