Billie Eilish drops eye-popping MV for “You Should See Me in a Crown”

Directed by contemporary art legend Takashi Murakami.

Hype for Billie Eilish’s debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, has been steadily building ahead of its release at the end of the month. And now, the pop star’s dropped a must-watch video for the song “You Should See Me in a Crown.”

The animated clip was directed by contemporary art legend Takashi Murakami, whom Eilish met while touring Japan last year. The artist—who’s famously collaborated with Kanye West—spent eight months working on the video. “I sprinted throughout the production process with my animation team striving to realize Billie’s vision in an unprecedented way,” he said in a statement.

There’s much to love about the video, from animated-Eilish’s dance moves, to the smooth incorporation of Murakami’s signature flowers and the pop star’s off-kilter BLOHSH logo, to the wild twist halfway through.
