Wow, This song is just Touching. She’s is so mesmerizing. It forces me to listen and interpret every single word she’s saying. There’s absolutely no one like her today. But, what’s so impressive about Billie Eilish’s “My Future” is that she’s able to convey so many emotions while whispering, and keeping the track in a slightly monotone spirit. And then the very SIMPLISTIC, but effective rhythmic production accompanied her whispering voice makes such an ear candy. I also love how she combines genres here. I hear a bit of pop, R&B, jazz, and even some lo-fi. Everything blends so well. I feel like this one has the potential to be a crossover hit. Lyrically, the track is about Eilish stating that she isn’t interested in nobody right now. Except for her own future. She is putting her self first. I believe it could be because of the pressure from Hollywood and social media, who always seem to be interested in someone’s love life. But she’s young, and she needs time for her. However, she says ” I’ll see you in a couple of years.” Meaning when the time is right she will find the person who she can grow with.
(The animation for the music video is spectacular. The color palates remind me of some anime back in the 90s)
