Here’s Why the Beat Drops Exactly Half Way Into Billie Eilish’s ‘My Future’ — According to Fans

After months without new music from Billie Eilish, fans finally have a “vibey” song to jam out to, the single, titled “My Future.” Some fans took to social media, sharing that this change halfway through the song could hold a much deeper meaning for the artist.

Sure, she’s been actively supporting the Black Lives Matter movement on social media, but Billie Eilish has been busy working on new music, as well. After some anticipation, fans finally got some new music from Billie Eilish, along with an animated music video, titled “My Future.” Within a few hours, it became one of the top trending videos on YouTube. 

The song itself, though, explains that Billie Eilish is more interested in herself than loving anybody else. Some listeners think there could be a hidden meaning, though. Primarily because this song has such a different vibe during the beginning versus at the end.

The song, ‘My Future,’ changes exactly halfway through

Although Billie Eilish hasn’t really had a chance to perform this song live, or talk about it during in-person interviews, fans noticed one unique thing that happens halfway through the song. At about the 1:42 mark, a beat kicks in and the song switches moods. 

Could this be a symbolic artistic choice? Some listeners on Twitter think that the switch could definitely have a deeper meaning. In fact, some think this tone change could signify a new era for Billie Eilish. 

“Dreamy – ‘My Future’ [by] Billie Eilish, single artwork perfect for tone, Billie’s voice amazing as always. Halfway through is a change in vibes and it works. I hope this is the start of era two,” one Twitter user wrote.

“I’m 48.5 years old and just learning the value of getting to know and love myself. If I could go back in time! Young Billie – you, my dear – are wise beyond your years! Proud of you, and thank you for being you and doing what you do,” one fan on Instagram wrote. The artist has yet to comment on the midway change of “My Future.”
