Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo Shared a Hug and Now I’m Dreaming of a Collab

Billie Eilish has been busy celebrating the release of her sophomore album, Happier Than Ever, and the singer-songwriter has plenty of friends to help her along the way — including the one and only Olivia Rodrigo!

On Thursday, July 29, Billie teamed up with Spotify to throw a launch party in Los Angeles in celebration of the album’s debut, titled Happier Than Ever: The Destination. Plenty of other celebs were in attendance, as well as a number of Billie’s close friends, and the singer shared a few snaps from the bash on IG as a highlight reel. “This is where the real love is,” Billie wrote, tagging a slew of stars and pals. A few clicks in, and you’ll find a pic of Billie and Olivia sharing an excited hug (peep the adorable patterned two-piece fit Olivia wore to the celebration).

Naturally, fans immediately zeroed in on the pic of the two singers. “LIV AND BILLIE!” one Instagrammer observed, with another simply wondering, “Collab when?” (But really — can you imagine the power that would hold?!) Olivia also responded to Billie’s post, commenting, “Ur an angel.”

Since the release of Happier Than Ever, it’s no secret that Billie’s fans have been fully in their feelings over the emotion-filled album. And Billie herself has been up front about this album being an important one to her as well. In an interview with VEVO earlier this summer, she described a self-reflective musical process, explaining, “Before, I always felt under pressure and anxious and felt like I wasn’t doing enough, right, or doing a good job. Or this isn’t good enough. I felt like I wasn’t very talented at the time, and I actually feel much more confident in my craft now. And I feel that I’ve worked really hard on that. And I think that this album was made in a very perfect time for me creatively.”

And while Happier Than Ever isn’t necessarily a pandemic album, Billie did work on the songs during the past year alongside her brother Finneas, having had more down time than she’s used to. “It’s not a Covid album, but it was the first time in four, five years that we had time off to actually make songs, without anybody telling us to, or any deadlines, or any pressure,” Billie told The Guardian. “We were so in the mindset, I loved it.”
