In the wake of Drake‘s new double album, Scorpion, Billie Eilish has paid homage to the OVO figurehead with the release of a folk cover of Drake’s ubiquitous 2016 hit, “Hotline Bling.” The cover is a staple of Eilish’s setlist, simply just her and a ukulele on stage, a far cry from Drizzy’s sweeping meme-fuel music video, anchoring her rendition to her standalone vocals.
Her smokey vocals cast a breath of purity that’s made her one of the freshest emerging singer/songwriters currently on the scene. On the second verse, Eilish’s voice takes a backseat, invoking a fleeting, mysterious ambiance, allowing other elements of the production to take center stage. Celebrating Drizzy’s double LP, which broke the single day streaming record at 132 million streams on release day, the 16-year-old said on Twitter, “CONGRATS ON SCORPION DRAKE i luv u dad.”

Almost exactly two years ago, we premiered a music video for the debut single from a 14-year-old singer named Billie Eilish. That single, “Ocean Eyes,” became a big viral hit — just last month, it was featured prominently in an episode of the great HBO show High Maintenance — and in the … More »
Billie Eilish left an indelible mark on pop music in 2017 and proved to be a fervent artist whose haunting, harmony-filled ballads diminish any and all suspected innocence. Despite her young age, Eilish’s immensely talented and brimming with fervent passion. After the release of her debut album, don’t smile at me, mid-2017, she’s already seen an official remix for “COPYCAT” from the vastly-ascending indie-pop duo, Sofi Tukker, and now, London’s trap auteur TroyBoi has taken on “my boy.”
With vocals as sultry and dulcetly-delivered as Eilish’s, it’s small wonder TroyBoi was able to create a compelling rework. Though as much as Eilish’s vocals are compelling, TroyBoi’s tempo modifications candidly elevate “my boy” to the tempestuous “MyBoi.” With chopped vocals, intricate hi-hats, substantial kicks, and bass-laden flair, TroyBoi sees Eilish’s “my boy” and raises it to anthemic trap heights.
In the middle of 2017, Billie Eilish released a dreamy indie electronic original, “COPYCAT.” The original featured slow-burning melodies, alluring beats, and moving vocals. Legendary DJ and producer duo Sofi Tukker, consisting of New York-based Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern, have added their own spin on Eilish’s single.
The two artists have amped up “COPYCAT” by adding layers of dark undertones, mesmerizing builds, and energetic synths. The remix is a tasteful combination of grooving progressions layered upon uptempo waves of bass. Sofi Tukker is known for their unique style, categorized by experimentation with an array of eclectic sounds. With their latest remix, Sofi Tukker demonstrate what’s in store for the coming year.
15-year-old singer-songwriter Billie Eilish released her debut EP, Don’t Smile at Me, in August. Vince Staples, meanwhile, released Big Fish Theory, which was largely regarded as one of the best electronic hip-hop albums of the year. Now, the two mavens have connected on a new track “&Burn,” an alternative version to the Eilish-led “Watch.” “&Burn” is a slowly stoked track, and while Staples’ vocals are fleeting, they linger into a quite combustible effect.
Eilish recently told The FADER that Staples was her first choice of collaborator and that she had originally come out of the studio with two different take ideas for the track.“This version felt like it would be perfect with someone as a feature,” she said. “Vince Staples was my NUMBER 1 choice, so when we got him to hear it and he agreed to do, it was incredible and the verse he did is so mf good! He is a god and I’m excited for it to finally come out!”
Los Angeles singer-songwriter Billie Eilish put out her debut EP Don’t Smile At Me in August, and today she released a new song, “&Burn,” featuring Vince Staples, who put out one of the best albums of 2017. Eilish told The FADER that Staples was her No. 1 … More »
