Billie Eilish’s ‘Therefore I Am’

On Nov. 12, Billie Eilish released a new song entitled “Therefore I Am.” In a music video shot on an iPhone camera in an empty mall, Eilish is seen running around grabbing treats such as pretzels, doughnuts and fries. With lyrics such as “I’m not your friend or anything / Damn, you think that you’re the man / I think, therefore, I am”, Eilish turns this song into a sort of anthem about rising above negative people. In an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, Eilish explained her thoughts about the song. “This song is very, very up for interpretation. I’m very curious to see what people get from it and also what they feel when they hear it. I don’t know. But yeah, it’s a little mean. I love it,” Eilish said.
