  • Billie Eilish just released her latest single "My Future" yesterday.

  • The lyrics are all about her coming to love herself.

Billie Eilish has revolutionized my playlist for the weekend with the release of her latest single "My Future." Even though the song and accompanying video have a bit of a darker, almost depressing vibe at the beginning, all of that breaks away to reveal the song's true meaning: Billie has learned to love herself and we love to see it.

The lyrics to "My Future" talk about Billie coming to love and accept herself. "I’m in love with my future, can’t wait to meet her / I’m in love, but not with anybody else. Just want to get to know myself.”

After this, "My Future" becomes more upbeat, and the lyrics talk about society's expectations for people who are not in a relationship. "I know supposedly I'm lonely now / Know I'm supposed to be unhappy without someone." But Billie later turns this around to talk about how she's not concerned with how other people think she should feel. The song totally reminds me of "Soulmate" by Lizzo.

The last lyric of the song is, "I'll see you in a couple years," which could speak to Billie being open to different kinds of love later on in her life. But right now, what's most important to her is having love for herself.

"We wrote this at the very beginning of quarantine," Eilish said in an email to fans, according USA Today. "It’s a song that’s really, really personal and special to me. When we wrote this song, it was exactly where my head was at — hopeful, excited and a craaaazy amount of self reflection and self growth. But recently it has also taken on a lot of new meaning in the context of what’s happening in the world now. I hope you can all find meaning in it for yourselves.”
