Billie Eilish Unleashes Menacing Single “You Should See Me In A Crown”
Friday is supposed to be the big day for new music, but a handful of major artists got an early start this week. Earlier today (July 18), ZAYN rolled out “Sour Diesel,” while Zedd and Elley Duhé teamed up for “Happy Now.” Joining them on an unusually hectic Wednesday is Billie Eilish. The prolific 16-year-old, who is enjoying a breakout hit with the Khalid-assisted “Lovely,” continues her winning streak with the amazingly titled “you should see me in a crown.” Only don’t expect more of the same.
While “Lovely” is a lushly-arranged, pop-adjacent ballad, Billie’s latest is a dark and twisted ditty with a minimal (but effective chorus) and industrial elements. The track was produced by her brother, Finneas O’Connell, and showcases her breathtaking versatility. It is expected to feature on the followup to debut ep, don’t smile at me, which has amassed a whopping 761 million combined streams. In the meantime, expect to hear a lot more of this song and “Lovely.” The latter recently peaked at number 78 on the Billboard Hot 100.
