Billie Eilish dropped the official music video for her song “Xanny”, an anti-drug ballad song which reflects her dislike of substance abuse, smoking and drinking as a way to escape from life. The singer co-wrote this song and released the audio track earlier this year with her brother Finneas. Xanny is the track from her debut studio album “When we all fall asleep, where do we go?” which peaked at No.35 on the Billboard Hot 100 and went Gold in Canada.
The sensational teen pop star refers to the prescription drug “xanax” and wrote the song after she attended a party where her friends “kept throwing up, kept drinking more”. Eilish refers to the incident in her songs, “I’m in their second-hand smoke” which was also portrayed in the music video – disembodied hands putting out cigarettes on her face leaving cigarette burns. The Grammy nominated shared a clip of the music video on Instagram with the caption: “xanny VIDEO OUT NOW! DIRECTED BY MEEE…GO WAAAAATCH AND MAKE EVERYONE YOU KNOW WATCH”.
One of the most relevant icons of 2019, Billie Eilish also has a massive fan base among young kids and teens for the themes she explores through her music, especially about mental health, anxiety and depression. She even became the youngest ever artist to be nominated in the ‘big 4’ Grammy categories – including ‘Song of the Year’ and ‘Record of the Year’.
With her alt-pop sound, daring visuals and moody voice, there’s no stopping her. Check out the video!
