Billie Eilish has released her new song, lost cause, and it’s already a hit with fans. The sultry tune, which is the fourth single off her upcoming album Happier Than Ever, is out now through Darkroom and Interscope Records.
“Lost Cause” is a slow, soft-rock and downtempo track that features elements of trip-hop and R&B music. It was written and produced by Eilish with her brother Finneas O’Connell.
The song is about an ex-boyfriend who wasn’t there for her on a particular day. During the chorus, Eilish sings, “I thought you had your s**t together, but damn, I was wrong”.
Despite that, she still has feelings for him. She says that she’s trying to make him care about her, but he just doesn’t. He doesn’t even want to talk to her, he’s just not interested in their relationship anymore.
In the video for the song, she and her friends are shown dancing around a beautiful home, playing games like Twister, eating snacks, and more. The women are all in their comfiest clothes, and the video definitely has some Beyonce “711” vibes.
The sultry track has already racked up over 40.2 million views and 2.4 million likes in a week, and the video’s visuals have left her fans hot and bothered. Many are questioning the video’s queerbaiting premise, which is a serious problem in the LGBTQ+ community.
