On March 29, Billie Eilish released her debut studio album called “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” Eilish’s album is a mixture of pop, electropop and trap.

Each track has a different perspective, and they all tell their own story. They reveal how much Eilish has been through.

Eilish is 17 years old, and she is an American singer and songwriter. In 2016 she released a debut single called “Ocean Eyes” and it had went viral. She also had a song called “Don’t Smile at Me” that was released in August  of 2017. After this, Apple Music had named Billie Eilish as their “UpNext Artist” September 2017.

On, Eilish’s song “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go” rose to #2 on the Top 200 Billboard chart.

The album includes 14 songs. Eilish released four singles before releasing the album including, “You Should See Me in a Crown,” “Bury a Friend,” “When the Party’s Over” and “Wish You Were Gay.”

“I’ve been listening to Billie before her EP came out. I went to her first tour and I even met her. I really like the song ‘All the Good Girls go to Hell’ because it’s really catchy,” said Olivia Rice, class of 2020.

“Bad Guy” is the most popular song on the album, earning Number 1 on “Billie Eilish Billboard.

My favorite song from the album is “I love you.” It is mainly based on a relationship that was hard for Eilish. She fell in love with him but he didn’t feel the same. The relationship became very toxic and he played the victim. The second verse says, “Maybe we should just try to tell ourselves a good lie,” meaning they are better off lying to each other.

Another one of my favorites of the album is “Bad Guy.” The song is happiness with a mix of disturbing or horrifying involvement with death or injury.

“‘I’m the bad guy,’ followed by a slight pause and Eilish’s playful “duh.” This is a strong signal that Eilish doesn’t intend for the song to be taken to seriously, which is a good thing, considering how disturbing some of the confessions her character makes are,” Arielle Anderson said, a blogger from Pop Song Professor.

“Listen before I go” is very unique in Eilish’s album but, I really enjoy listening to it. It has a deep meaning because it talks about someone on the verge of committing suicide. “Sorry can’t save me now.” She is begging those who need something from her since she is “leaving soon.” It describes how she isn’t open to apologizes from anyone, as she has already reasoned to take her life.

“Don’t you know I’m no good for you. I’ve learned to lose you can’t afford to,” Eilish says in the saddest song on her album “When The Party’s Over.” It describes how she is not good enough for her lover. All of the effort she has put in for them, they still leave her.

“I really enjoy listening to ‘When The Party’s Over’ because it’s really calming and it’s different from the rest of the songs on the album,” Kirsten Saylor said, Class of 2019.

Eilish announced the When We All Fall Asleep World Tour on February 4th. It began in April after the release of her debut album. She was also at the Coachella music festival.
