Billie Eilish - Your Power
- Try not to abuse your power:
Billie addresses abuse of power and trust as the core issue, rather than any specific manifestation of said abuse. This kind of statement is also timely in the larger context of the #MeToo movement, as well as Billie’s stance on female objectification in the music industry.
- But you ruined her in a year, don't act like ...:
These lines allude to Billie’s former boyfriend, LA rapper Brandon Adams, A.K.A, 7: AMP. Eilish and Adams dated for a year before breaking up in June of 2019. During this time period, Eilish was underage—she was 16, and Adams was 22. Billie actually means to tell about herself by "her" in this line.
- She was sleeping in your clothes (In your clothes)...:
The juxtaposition of sleeping/being extremely intimate with a partner against the idea of waking up and rushing to get ready for school highlights the dangerous dynamic in asymmetrical relationships such as the central story of “Your Power”. Billie was underage, 16, and 7: AMP was 22 when they were together.
