I mean it’s a song about sexual assault and a minor being sexually exploited. Did people really think it was going to be upbeat or something? I can see it in SOTY already.April 29, 2021 at 11:06 am #1204235097
honestly not a huge fan of the song, thought it was kind of boring.

This song is boring. It’ll probably due well right out of the gate due to the hype, but she will need something to sustain it.April 29, 2021 at 11:24 am #1204235130
This is GF contender song, I didn’t expect this year EIW to even be nominated let alone win ROTY, it all depends on which song is submitted.April 29, 2021 at 12:01 pm #1204235212
Billie Eilish + “Your Power” = PUKE!April 29, 2021 at 12:04 pm #1204235223This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.April 29, 2021 at 12:10 pm #1204235228
The song is a slow burn. I’m interested in the lyrics and I could see it being recognized in that aspect. I don’t think it has genuine hit potential but stranger things have happened. Your Power doesn’t seem like single material based on my initial reaction, although I grew to love ETIW after a tepid first response. I’m curious to hear the rest of the songs and I’m hoping for more variety.April 29, 2021 at 1:52 pm #1204235312
My future is by far the best released single so far. your power has something specialApril 29, 2021 at 2:14 pm #1204235332
Lovely song. Can’t really see it being a hit, but it definetely has SOTY potential. Not crazy about any of the music she’s released for this album so far, but i’m still interest enough to check out the full project. She looks amazing in the cover tho.April 29, 2021 at 4:33 pm #1204235489
“Your Power” + Song of the Year nomination/win = PUKE!April 29, 2021 at 4:35 pm #1204235492
This album is already shaping to be fucking Trash. Everything released after “everything I wanted” is shit. My God. Where’s the variety??April 29, 2021 at 4:39 pm #1204235496
Loving the strings but nothing new. She really doesn’t have much range in her style of singing. Even Lana, Lorde and Tay whom all have pretty limited voices in my opinion, keep their music interesting.
That’s one of the reasons why “When We All Fall Asleep…” worked. I don’t think it was a great album. But the aesthetics was diverse enough to keep it interesting despite her monotone and same-y approach and her limitations. I assumed she would continue down the route of a catch-all sound or would attempt some shifts as a vocalist. We’re not really seeing either of those things post that album. This is a cute song but dank and sounds like a lot of her other songs. I believe in giving young artists time to mature. But if she and her label intend for her to remain a huge, big selling, big streaming artist for years to come, there’s definitely gonna need to be some branching out soon. I don’t think sticking with this Lorde meets Adele shit will sustain her.April 29, 2021 at 5:51 pm #1204235548
I’m gonna wait for the next singleApril 29, 2021 at 6:12 pm #1204235565
This era feels a little disappointing. I haven’t disliked any of the songs so far, but none of them are anything super special or hard hitting like the best songs of WWAFAWDWG. “My Future” was a commercial tank, “Therefore I Am” is being carried by radio, and this song feels like it’s too slow for radio and too monotone for streaming, so I’m expecting a decent debut and plummett like the lead. I’m not sure what’s going on with the release strategy this time around
As for the song itself, I like the composition but the lyrics are kinda flat. I get the song’s meaning but I feel like people associate a song being important/personal with it being good. It kinda feels a little lost lyrically. Still, the sound is gorgeous and I’ve been spamming it as background music. The instrumentation and vocals are very pretty.April 29, 2021 at 8:10 pm #1204235636
The last memorably great song from Billie Eillish for me is “Everything I Wanted.”
All her recent songs, including There I Am and the 007 one, are all generic/forgettable for me. I was hyped up for this new era because of that 15s snippet, but then “Your Power” was released, which is so weak as a single.
