On Wednesday (Nov. 27), Billie Eilish revealed the inspiration behind her latest track, «Everything I Wanted» in a new video by Beats by Dre.

«It’s called ‘Everything I Wanted’ but we called it ‘Nightmare’ for a while,» the pop star dishes in the clip as her brother/collaborator Finneas O’Connell builds the track’s instrumentation on a keyboard. «Finneas came up with, ‘As long as I’m here, no one can hurt you.’ We decided to make it about our relationship and how we help each other and, like, deal with things together. It just completely, like, paved the way for the rest of the song.»

The video also features an adorable cameo from the siblings’ mom, Maggie Baird, who tears up as her superstar daughter plays her the finished track for the first time while gathered around the family’s kitchen table.

Watch Eilish and O’Connell break down their creative process in the video below.
