After that, she went on to release the track “Bored” as a part of the soundtrack to series 13 Reasons Why followed by her next hit single “Watch”.

Her debut EP “Don’t Smile at Me” was released in August 2017. It peaked at #14 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top Heatseekers chart.

Eilish later responded the backlash to her saying “First off, I want to be so clear that it’s so not supposed to be an insult, I feel like it’s been a little bit misinterpreted. I tried so hard to not make it in any way offensive.”

She added: “The whole idea of the song is, it’s kind of a joke, It’s kind of like ‘I’m an ass and you don’t love me. And you don’t love me because you don’t love me and that’s the only reason and I wish you didn’t love me because you didn’t love girls.”
