Billie Eilish has slightly unexpected hopes for fan reaction to her upcoming album, Happier Than Ever.
In a new interview, the Grammy award-winning singer explained that she wants fans to be so moved by the message that they ‘break up with their boyfriend.’
Indeed, if the content of singles Your Power and Lost Cause were anything to go by, it has been clear that 19-year-old wants to empower her fans through her music.
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, she explained: ‘I hope people break up with their boyfriends because of it. And I hope they don’t get taken advantage of.’
However, it was a previous relationship with Brandon Adams – an artist who performs as 7:AMP – that made headlines following the release of her documentary, The World’s a Little Blurry.

The documentary spanned from the final weeks of recording her debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, in late 2018 through to the 2020 Grammy Awards, and fans a peek into her private romance.
The scenes shared with the world hinted that the pair’s relationship had several issues, and Billie admitted to Rolling Stone that she hadn’t been pleased by the footage.
‘I don’t like to share that part of my life, and I was not planning on sharing that part of my life ever,’ she stated.

In the aftermath of the documentary, fans began to attack Adams and his family on social media.
Many then assumed that Billie’s single Your Power had possibly been inspired by the dynamics of the relationship.
Billie made it clear she didn’t appreciate the speculation as she snapped: ‘Everybody needs to shut up. [The documentary] was a microscopic, tiny, tiny little bit of that relationship.

‘Nobody knows about any of that, at all. I just wish people could just stop and see things and not have to say things all the time.’
Elsewhere in the chat, the Bad Guy singer claimed she had been ‘clingy’ in relationships but has spent the past two years learning to be okay on her own.
‘I didn’t know how before, which is ironic because I had never been in a relationship that allowed me to really exist with that person anyway,’ she explained. ‘My emotion always is because of somebody else’s, and that had been such a big pain in the ass… You heal eventually.’
Billie Eilish’s new album, Happier Than Ever, drops on July 30.
