Listing Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne and The Beatles as some of the artists she grew up listening to, she added that Lavigne’s 2003 hit ‘Losing Grip’ from her debut album Let Go was of was particular significance to her throughout her youth.
“This is my favourite Avril song ever, a very big song from my childhood as well as ‘Complicated’, as well as ‘I’m With You’, as well as ‘Sk8er Boi’, ‘Girlfriend’, blah, blah, blah, ‘Keep Holding On’,” Eilish said.
“But this one came back into my life in 2018, and we used to just get down to this song. God…we used to just scream this song in the car. God, this song,” Eilish continued. “This chorus is just like …Oh my God, it’s so good, and the beat…Oh my God.”
The 18-year-old continued, “I’ve never heard a sound like that in my life. There is no other song like this. There’s no other song. I’m telling you, this song does not get old. I was with all my homies two years ago and we would just scream this song wherever we went. God. Every time I hear that beginning, I’m like, ‘Okay, let’s get ready. Okay.’”
She also listed ‘Baby One More Time’ by Britney Spears, describing this era of Britney Spears as “mind-blowing” – and spilling the tea on her relatable reaction to discovering the pop princess dancing to one of her songs.
“This is an incredible song. Dude, this era of Britney was just mind-blowing. Shout out to Britney too, because lately, she’s been… Or since I was on Instagram, which was weeks ago now, she posted a couple of videos to my songs and I almost pooped my pants. So I love you, Britney.”
She continued, “But this one, this is a classic. Everybody knows ‘Baby One More Time.’ I used to dance in the living room to this on my tiny little horrible speaker. Let’s go. Let’s go, Britney.”
