Billie Eilish is on the verge of a huge commercial breakthrough. The 16-year-old recently landed her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Lovely,” an appropriately-titled duet with Khalid from the 13 Reasons Why: Season 2 soundtrack and now has another hit on her hands with the menacing “you should see me in a crown.” That song has already racked up more than 57 million Spotify streams and earned the talented teenager a coveted performance slot on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. (Watch her in action here).

The “Ocean Eyes” singer’s hot streak continues with “when the party’s over,” a pared-back and deeply relatable anthem about putting someone in their place when they try to call you at an inopportune time. Produced by brother and frequent collaborator Finneas O’Connell, Billie’s latest single puts the focus exactly where it should be — on her sublime voice. “Quiet when I’m coming home, I’m on my own,” the breakout star seethes on the chorus. “And I could lie and say I like it like that.” Listen below.
