She is the first female artist to win best new artist, record of the year, album of the year and song of the year in the same year. She has also replaced Taylor Swift as the youngest person to win album of the year.

Her song “bad guy,” which she wrote with her older brother Finneas O’Connell, won record of the year and song of the year while “When We Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” bagged best pop vocal album and album of the year.

Billie, whose career started with the song “Ocean Eyes,” which was written and produced by her brother, began sharing her music with the world on SoundCloud. Billie and Finneas work on their songs in their studios in their rooms at their parents’ house. “We just make music in a bedroom together,” Finneas said at the Grammys.

“This is my first Grammys and I never thought this would ever happen in my whole life,” Billie said as she and Finneas accepted the award for song of the year. Finneas also won awards for best engineered album, non-classical and producer of the year, non-classical.

Billie will be performing in the Philippines on Sept. 5. Manila is one of the stops of her Where Do We Go? World Tour. The show, which is produced by MMI Live and Live Nation, will happen at the Mall of Asia Arena. Tickets will be available from SM Tickets starting Feb. 2.
