‘What Was I Made For?’ by Billie Eilish – Single Rating: 5/5 ★★★★★
This new release by Billie Eilish, unveils a deeper, introspective side to her music. Here, she teams up once again with FINNEAS to deliver a track that beautifully contrasts with the upbeat nature of the Barbie movie’s soundtrack. Serving as the seventh single for the movie, Eilish’s announcement on Instagram revealed her involvement as one of the mystery artists, piquing the curiosity of her dedicated fanbase.
The song’s lyrics delve into Billie’s personal struggles with finding her purpose and passion in life. They also mirror the character of Barbie’s own spiritual journey in the movie. In an emotive exploration of self-discovery, Eilish poetically reflects on her previous buoyancy, now replaced by uncertainty. Lines like “I used to float, now I just fall down” and “Takin’ a drive, I was an ideal / Looked so alive, turns out I’m not real” capture a sense of loss and longing.
Eilish’s trademark quality shines through instantly, showcasing the immense talent that catapulted her to stardom in such a short span of time. However, there is a newfound maturity in her delivery, indicating her growth as an artist. At the age of 21, it is evident that Eilish has a long and prosperous career ahead of her.
Her vocals, as always, are a delight to the ears. She delivers her euphoric tones beautifully, at times almost whispering. However, she manages to evoke an astonishing amount of power with her limited breath. This delicate balance between vulnerability and strength resonates deeply, drawing us further into the track.
