According to Bob Lefsetz, Billie Eilish’s new album only got to number one through some shenanigan’s by the record label and the vinyl sales, that Spotify’s Top 50, a good arbitrator of how well a song is doing, has only two songs off Happier, and that in effect that is that.
I tend to agree but I will add the why.
1 – Dressed in oversized clothing ala hip hop, she was an every girl teenager at 17, at 19 she has evolved into a blonde sexpot.
2 – Before, she had “Bad Guy” where she took all the power of bad guys, and kept them for herself. In “NDA” she has lovers signing a non disclosure pact.
3 – She has emerged from the charts a superstar beyond the keen of mere mortals. The opposite of what made her appealing in the beginning.
Billie has ignored every lesson Taylor could have taught her, she isn’t close to her fan base, she isn’t one of the guys, she isn’t a part of a greater family. Instead, she is a little closer to Lorde: she has a sound and the sound remains, but she isn’t more than that sound. She grew up and away too fast.
