Billie Eilish Sits Down for an Interview With Jordan Brand

She sports the newest colorway of the Air Jordan 1 “EXPLORER XX.”

Bilie Eilish sat down for an interview with Jordan Brand to discuss her rise in the music industry. She admits that her first major hit “Ocean’s Eyes” was intended for her dance class but went viral soon after its release. For her feature photo shoot, Eilish sports the new “Olive” colorway of the Air Jordan 1EXPLORER XX.” This silhouette is a part of the women-designed “1 Reimagined” pack that released earlier this year. The new iteration of the AJI laces up to the calf with a see-through collar that matches the upper.

She goes on to talk about her DIY start in music and her first pair of Jordans:

How were you able to learn music from an early age?

My mom taught me how to write music, and my dad taught me how to play the piano and stuff. I basically taught myself everything else from YouTube. You can learn anything from YouTube. You feel me?

Even though you come from a creative, musical family, how did you figure out your own path?

I wasn’t forced into anything, because I was home-schooled. It gave me more freedom to figure out what I wanted. I got to try out other ways of being. That’s the reason I’m here now, because I had the time to be like, “Wow, music is actually what I want to do.”

When did you first encounter a pair of Jordans?

I remember going to a thrift shop with my mom once. When we walked in, I ran across the floor to a bunch of shoes, where I found some Jordan 4s. I picked them up and asked my mom to buy them for me. They were super old and beat up.
