El tercer adelanto del nuevo disco de la talentosa artista californiana se inspira en una relación que tuvo a los 16 años

Billie Eilish – Your Power (Vídeo Oficial)

La niña prodigio de la música pop norteamericana sigue ofreciendo adelantos de su inminente nuevo disco, Happier Than Ever, cuyo lanzamiento ha sido anunciando para el 30 de julio.

El sosegado y melancólico tema «Your Power» -con una comedida producción de su hermano Finneas que da aire a la voz- es una alegoría sobre el abuso de poder dentro de una relación, lo cual está relacionado con la relación que tuvo cuando tenía 16 años con el rapero 7:AMP (Brandon Adams).

El vídeo, que ella misma dirige, fue grabado en un paraje solitario que refuerza el mensaje con la metáfora de una anaconda que va aprisionando su cuello y cuerpo.

Letra
Try not to abuse your power
I know we didn’t choose to change
You might not wanna lose your power
But havin’ it’s so strange

She said «you were a hero, you played the part»
«But you ruined her in a year, don’t act like it was hard»
And you swear you didn’t know (didn’t know, didn’t know)
No wonder why you didn’t ask
She was sleepin’ in your clothes (in your clothes, in your clothes)
But now she’s got to get to class

How dare you?
And how could you?
Will you only feel bad when they find out?
If you could take it all back
Would you?

Try not to abuse your power
I know we didn’t choose to change
You might not wanna lose your power
But havin’ it’s so strange

I thought that I was special, you made me feel
Like it was my fault, you were the devil, lost your appeal
Does it keep you in control? (In control, in control)
For you to keep her in a cage?
And you swear you didn’t know (didn’t know, didn’t know)
You said you thought she was your age

How dare you?
And how could you?
Will you only feel bad if it turns out that they kill your contract?
Would you?

Try not to abuse your power
I know we didn’t choose to change
You might not wanna lose your power
But power isn’t pain

Mhmm, mhmm
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh ooh ooh, ooh-ooh
Ha, ha-ha-ha-ha
La-la-la-la la, la la, la la
Ha
