Why Billie Eilish's "Everything I Wanted" Deserves To Win
Eilish, despite her young age, has been touching people's lives through her songs. With the help of her older brother, Finneas, the teen singer gave birth to a song that shows the "unshakeable bond" between people.
In a press release, per NME, the 18-year-old explained that they wrote the song about each other, creating a heartwarming song for everyone.
"This song is one my brother and I wrote about each other. No matter what happens, we have always been and will be there to make it better," Eilish said.
To hear a song about family during the 2021 Grammy Awards is truly what people need. Given that 2020 has been a tough year for everyone, listening to "Everything I Wanted" makes people look back and feel grateful about their lives.
Furthermore, "Everything I Wanted" serves as an inspiration to people, especially teens who struggle to be successful in life.
Although Eilish turned from being a simple Los Angeles teenager to one of the world's best pop stars, her track has surely made a difference.
While one sees that having numerous bank accounts or a notable status can be called as success in this money-driven world, Eilish's song became an eye-opener. It showed how people's relationships are more important than fame and success.
And that is what the people of Grammys should show the world.
Aside from its inspiring message, the song itself truly deserves a Grammy nod.
Eilish unveiled her usual airy and sad bop. Despite that, she made a little twist for "Everything I Wanted" and applied music that sounds weightless.
The twinkling piano keys and ethereal synth instrumentals can take everyone to a world no one ever discovered yet. The singer, indeed, is famous for creating songs that are related to her dreams. Through the song, she opened herself up and got out of isolation.
Amid the lows the world has been experiencing this years, Billie Eilish's "Everything I Wanted" serves as the silver lining that makes our stay in the world worthwhile--which is exactly what we are looking for in this 2021 Grammy Awards prediction for Best Pop Solo Performance Category.
