Billie Eilish has revealed that her own dad introduced her to the music of UK rappers J Hus and Not3s.

Eilish, who recently launched her new Apple Music radio show me & dad radio, has spoken about two of her favourite UK rappers, who she discovered through her dad Patrick O’Connell.

Yesterday (12 May), Eilish updated the playlist with J Hus' huge "Did You See" song and Not3s' "Addison Lee (Peng Ting Called Maddison)" banger.

She explained on the show that her dad introduced her to music of the UK rappers, and said, "I love J Hus. He was, like, the first of the UK rappers that I was introduced to, thanks to my dad." She also praised J Hus' producer JAE5.

Discussing the Not3s track, Eilish explained, "Dad didn’t know what an Addison Lee was. Dad didn’t even realise it was a car. Dad said, ‘Peng ting, cold medicine, cold medicine.’ I love Not3s! He’s a sweetheart, too."

O'Connell added, "For those of you who don’t know, ‘peng ting’ is a hot number, a hot girl."

Speaking about the concept of the radio show before its launch last week, Eilish said, "My dad and I have had this relationship over the years of sharing music with each other. My dad has shown me some of my favorite songs in the world and I’ve shown him songs that he loves and adores also."

Billie Eilish's me & dad radio show is available to stream now on Apple Music.
