WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Does music make you walk in a different way?

That’s the question singer, songwriter and actor Billie Eilish, left many wondering after she released her very first full-length album, Signed Sealed Delivered (SEND).

More than half of the album has earned the 19-year-old three Billboard Music Awards: Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Top Dance/Electronic Album, and Song of the Year, for “Location.”

“I guess I was just shocked, you know, because I’ve never seen my song blow up like that before,” Eilish told Good Morning America’s Linsey Davis.

Eilish says the experience has been overwhelming at times.

“I try not to be a hater but tons of people hate me,” she said. “I feel like I’m not worrying as much.”

The singer says she’s not afraid of success, but she’s been impacted by being away from home.

“Sometimes it gets so overwhelming that you wonder if it’s worth it,” Eilish told Davis.

When asked whether she would ever move away from Chicago to make music, Eilish said, “I’m not saying never, but I’m not like a big fan of big cities.

“I might have dreams to make music in an imaginary city like San Francisco,” she said.

While she has no plans to move, Eilish said she wants to help anyone who is struggling to dream their dream.

“‘Don’t let them slow you down. Be who you are. Do what you want.’ And that’s what I’m trying to do,” she said.

Eilish recently toured her songs and told Davis, “Being a woman, being an artist, is hard. It’s really hard.”
