Known for her creepy aesthetic and mysterious style of singing, it was no surprise when Billie Eilish caused all of her fans to jump in fear with the music video, “Bury a friend.” The newly famous line “When we all fall asleep where do we go?” was played numerous times throughout the song and ended up being the name of her album.

The first track shown is called ‘!!!!!!!’ and it is only 13 seconds long. It turns out it was just an entrance to the album featuring Eilish and her brother laughing. All of the music has its own special meaning behind it. The most significantly emotional songs are “i love you,” “listen before i go,” and “xanny.” You could say that this collection of songs is very two-faced in ways.

Basically, it is either very confident-sounding and fun, or sad and mournful. This kind of variety gives listeners a good option depending on their mood that day. The album immediately shot to first on the leader board and it is easy to see why. Eilish is experienced in making music original and different. “When we all fall asleep where do we go” will not be forgotten easily.
