Billie Eilish and Khalid have a “lovely” reason to celebrate now that the music video for their 2018 collaboration has reached 1 billion views on YouTube.
In the cold and dark visual for their melodramatic ballad, which premiered April 26, 2018, the two young singers delicately waltz around each other in a glass box while wearing all-black outfits and a thick layer of silver chains. The then-16-year-old Eilish came up with the video concept to convey feeling hopelessly trapped with someone else. “Lovely” was featured on the accompanying soundtrack for the second season of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why series, which Selena Gomez executive produced.
This marks Khalid’s first entry and Eilish’s second entry after the music video for “Bad Guy,” her Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hit and Grammy winner, ushered her into the exclusive club two months ago. “AYYYEEEEE BAD GUY HIT A BILLI,” the pop superstar wrote on her Instagram Story at the time with a screenshot of the YouTube page.
