Billie Eilish has released what appears to be her next big hit.
The 17-year-old musician and recent Stern Show guest on Wednesday dropped “Everything I Wanted,” a tribute to her brother and collaborator Finneas. The song skyrocketed to the top of the YouTube trending charts immediately and was viewed over four million times within just 24 hours.
“This song is one my brother and I wrote about each other. No matter what happens, we have always been and will be there to make it better,” Billie said in a statement about the tune, which also touches upon everything from dreams and nightmares to stardom and her relationship with her fans.
“Everything I Wanted” is Billie’s first new track since her Stern Show debut in September, during which she and Finneas sat down for a wide-ranging interview and tackled many of the same topics she addresses in the song. “There’s a part of me that feels like … I didn’t get to be a teenager— like, a normal one,” she told Howard about her stardom.
As listeners will remember, Billie and Finneas also performed several of their hits live in the studio, giving fans a glimpse of their writing process as they crafted a completely original ditty about sleep paralysis. Watch the two of them improvise along with Howard (below).
