How Billie Eilish Feels Xxxtentacion Has the ‘Biggest Impact’ on Her

The moonlight doesn’t show. And all my love could never bring you home,” sang Billie Eilish in what could be considered an angelic voice. The video of Billie Eilish giving tribute to the late Jahseh Dwayne Ricardo Onfroy, more popularly known as XXXTENTACION, was shared by the rapper’s mother on his second death anniversary. He was known for his alien-themed style and was widely popular among the youth for his sad lyrics.

An artist who really identified with XXXTENTACION and his style of music was Eilish, who rose to unprecedented popularity with Ocean Eyes in 2017. And the talented rapper met his unfortunate demise in June 2018. In the short time that Billie Eilish spent with the Bad Vibes Forever rapper, she developed a bond that will keep her going for a lifetime.

The now seven-time Grammy award-winning artist has, on countless occasions, expressed her love for the late rapper. Eilish felt a deep connection with him, which she opened up about in an interview with MONTREALITY. A huge reason behind this may also be the fact that many studios rejected Billie Eilish because they said her music was ‘sad and depressing,’ which is the music genre that XXXTENTACION rules in.

He has the biggest impact on me, I feel like. More than anybody else did,” said Eilish about the rapper. Furthermore, this was the first time that the Bad Guys singer was speaking about his tragic death publicly.
