Billie Eilish dropped a thunderous new music video Friday (July 30) for her song “Happier Than Ever,” which was released on the same day with the 15 other tracks on the pop star’s new sophomore album of the same name.
“Happier Than Ever” is the second to last song on the tracklist, and is already becoming a favorite among fans, critics and Eilish herself. Posting a clip of the video on Instagram, she wrote in her all-caps caption that “THIS IS MY FAVORITE SONG AND VIDEO EVER ENJOY.”
The reason the song is sticking out to so many people is that it’s divided into two very discernible parts. The first finds Eilish singing in her typical soft-voiced manner, sounding defeated as she sings “when I’m away from you, I’m happier than ever.” But the quiet of the first half is met with the burning rage of the second, as Eilish brings in distorted electric guitars and full-chest screams to send a major “screw you” to the person who hurt her.
