The show will be available for viewing on Amazon Prime Video for 30 days with Amazon Prime Days set for June 21 and 22, according to Deadline. The streaming is available to all without a Prime subscription and will be available on Twitch and IMDb TV.

"Working with Billie Eilish, H.E.R., and Kid Cudi to bring their music to life through these imaginative experiences has been incredible," Ryan Redington, VP of the music industry at Amazon Music, told Deadline. "Watching these globally renowned artists create three shows from the depths of their imagination has been unlike anything we've ever done before. We're thrilled to bring fans along with us to celebrate these three remarkable artists and Prime Day."

The Prime Day show with Eilish will take viewers into a "timeless Parisian neighborhood" with a series of performances directed by Eilish and Sam Wrench. Produced by Fremantle and Amazon Studios, the 27-minute piece will include music from Eilish's upcoming album Happier Than Ever.

H.E.R.'s tribute to the venue features music from her album Back Of My Mind and imagines what the hotel would be like if it existed in 2021
