Billie Eilish’s personal growth anthem “My Future"

Billie Eilish strikes again with an amazing single in which she shows us her personal and emotional side.  During the lockdown, she took the time to take her career to the next level with the help of her brother and her producer Finneas. “My Future”, a sweet and sophisticated single, was released at the end of July, appealing millions of fans with her harmonious whisper voice over some simple chord changes. The song then takes more jazz feel to it as her lyrics begin to talk about how she walks away from a relationship, deciding to put herself and her future first. The single known as “a personal growth anthem” is targeted to the young generations, offering encouragement to those young fans and delivering the message that it’s ok to focus on yourself as you grow. Billie states that “It’s a song that’s really, really personal and special to me. When we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at – hopeful, excited, and a crazy amount of self-reflection and self-growth. But recently it has also taken on a lot of new meaning in the context of what’s happening in the world now. I hope you can all find meaning in it for yourself.” Billie Eilish may be a dark pop princess, but her future seems bright. The music video opens with a cartoon version of her standing in the rain, symbolizing the relationship she is leaving behind. As the song progresses, the skies clear up and she is in a lush forest where trees and plants are growing quickly, symbolizing her bright future ahead and her self-growth. 

This song is a must add to your Spotify or iTunes list with its beautiful lyrics about self-love and personal growth narrated by Billie’s angelic voice combined with bossa nova and jazz rhythms.

    Shakira Realized Ex Allegedly Cheated Due to Jam Jar, Referenced in Music Video with Head in Fridge

    Shakira fans believe the singer realized her ex Gerard Pique was cheating on her when she returned to their home from touring to find an empty jar of strawberry jam. She eats strawberry jam, but her husband and kids reportedly do not like it.

    Should People Gatekeep Music?

    Gaslight, gatekeep, girl boss. It’s all fun and games until someone actually does either of the two formers. While it is perfectly fine to joke about gatekeeping things like music (the act of preventing general access to something or withholding it to prevent it from becoming mainstream or popular), in practice, it can actually be a toxic and harmful thing to do. Gatekeeping music from mainstream audiences can be harmful to musicians, listeners, and society as a whole, because of the dangerous mentalities and limiting experiences and worldviews it promotes.

    How the TikTok Algorithm can Help Independent Artists

    Stereotypes of Music Genres are Harmful

    Music has always been a huge part of our society and our identities. It’s everywhere, and most of us are very particular about what kind we want to listen to. It’s also been the case that different genres produce diverse reactions. We identify parts of our personalities based on what we listen to, which in turn makes us insinuate things about other people based on their personal music preferences. Some of the basic stereotypes that come to mind are: people that listen to rap music are troublemakers that like to do drugs, people who listen to country music are dumb and drink a lot of beer, and people who listen to classical music are boring and usually very smart.
