AN ELITE, BLUE-HUED HITS LIST


It’s late-March madness, with Billie Eilish’s album dropping as the NCAA Tournament moves through the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight stages to the Final Four. Right now, we’re witnessing a pair of budding Gen-Z superstars ascend in parallel.

Billie and Duke freshman Zion Williamson have a lot in common apart from their age group—both are unique, transformative talents in their respective lines of endeavor, with massive viral fanbases, astonishing verticality and expert mentors in Michelle An and Coach K—not to mention their oversized basketball shoes. And both are packing arenas.

But don’t sleep on BTS, that young but highly skilled squad from South Korea, or Little Nas X, who has a crossover move you won’t believe. There’s also an intriguing match-up of contrasting styles, as the Swedish giants of Spotify take on those scrappy, determined songwriters.

Let the games continue...
