THE B-SIDE
VINCE AND BILLIE "BURN"
12/15/17

Darkroom/Interscope's Billie Eilish and Def Jam's Vince Staples sent ripples through the DIY community with the surprise drop of their collaborative effort "&burn" yesterday (12/14) only to land a listing on Spotify's New Music Friday. While on the surface it doesn't seem like the most likely pairing, they made something really unique and cool together. 

"&burn" features the high and clear vocals you can depend on Eilish for, as well as a biting verse from Staples. The lyrics reference arson in response to a broken heart—very on brand considering the dark horse each has tended to in previous work. The production—credited to her brother Finneas, who had worked on this track along with Staples—is certainly in the vein of Eilish's pre-established aesthetic.

Following the new year, Eilish will be heading out on tour in the U.K. and Europe. Staples is going out with Tyler, the Creator for a North American run.
