Billie Eilish & Khalid – lovely
Billie Eilish & Khalid – lovely mp3 download
Billie Eilish and Khalid collaborate on a new record titled lovely. Billie Eilish, the singer and songwriter behind last year’s viral hit “Ocean Eyes,” frequently writes from a fictional perspective. Take, for example, “Bellyache,” her third single, in which she channels a remorseless murderer: “Sitting all alone, mouth full of gum, in the driveway,” she sings.
“My friends aren’t far—in the back of my car lay their bodies.” But of all the songs on her debut EP Don’t Smile At Me, which came out Friday, it’s “Copycat,” the opening track and the one she described as “the most honest song I have,” that is probably her favorite—and it’s anything but fiction.
Her pop influences can be heard in her playful, word-association lyrics, and her precociousness has earned her comparisons to Lorde, but Eilish also said brought up influences like Tyler the Creator, in whose lyrics “everything is a reference to everything,” shifted how she approached writing.
