Composition and lyrics

One of the most streamed artists in the world, a five-time Grammy Award winner and just one of the youngest idols of a million people, Billy Eilish is determined to conquer the top charts once again! Her new release “Therefore I Am”, which was released along with the video, became the third single for the singer in 2020! As for the clip, it was directed by Eilish herself! But more on that later...

Lyrically, Eilish sings about how she doesn't care what people think of her. The song is "built on a solid bassline" and shows how Eilish "defends the media with a series of sharp retaliatory strikes"

"I'm not your friend or anything / Damn, you think you're a man / I think therefore I am."

Eilish sings about hating the endless media coverage and asking fake people to stop talking about her like they know her:

"Get my pretty name out of your mouth / We're not the same, with or without / Don't talk about me like you know how I feel."

The title line of the single "Therefore I Am" refers to the philosophical teachings of Descartes. The phrase, which translates as "I think, therefore I am," the performer repeats in the refrains. By tradition, the song was produced by Finneas O'Connell, Billy's older brother.

Music video

The music video for "Therefore I Am" was released on November 12, 2020. It premiered on Thursday at 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT. The video is directed by Eilish. The clip was filmed at the abandoned Glendale Galleria (in California), which Eilish has known since her early teens.

Eilish told Apple Music's Zane Lowe about the video:

“The video is a way of saying how this song feels to me – casually and easily. The video was filmed on an iPhone and, in the end, it turned out the way we didn’t even imagine.”

The singer described the video as "random" and "chaotic" and said the clip was filmed overnight "virtually without any command".

In the clip, Eilish runs around an empty mall, drinking fresh lemonade and eating a hot dog, and then steals a bag of Chipotle. Then, Eilish walks up the escalator and eats pretzels and donuts while singing:

"I'm not your friend or anything / Damn, you think you're a man / I think therefore I am."

Conclusion…

On Sunday, November 22, Eilish will premiere the song at the American Music Awards, where she is nominated for two awards. The show will air live at 8pm ET on ABC.

On December 10, Eilish will perform live at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball 2020, which will air on over 90 iHeartRadio stations and as a live video stream.

Recall that in September 2020, Billie also released a video clip for the song "No Time to Die" from the James Bond film of the same name.
