Billie Eilish and Rosalia Collab for a Passionate, Heavenly Spanish duet, "Lo Vas A Olvidar."

Grammy winners Billie Eilish and Rosalia, "Lo Vas A Olvidar" song dropped January 21, 2021, and the response has been phenomenal. The duet collaborated on a bilingual soundtrack for an HBO special, Euphoria Part: 2 Jules. 

The song title roughly translates, "You Will Forget It," becomes part of the song's chorus; Rosalia harmonizes with Billie Eilish, "Can you let it go"/ "Lo vas A Olvidar." Rosalia also sings, "Dime si me echas de meno' aún, Dime si no me perdonas aún" ( Tell me if you miss me yet, Tell me if you forgive me). 

Her enchanting vocals reveal the anguish of a broken heart. Listeners can expect to be astounded over Billie's aptitude to sing in Spanish, keeping her signature sound. "El Tiempo Que se pierde no Vuelve, Dame un beso y bájame de la cru'" (Time that is lost, does not return, kiss me and take me down from this cross). The chemistry between these two powerhouse singers is remarkable. 


Over the years, the Barcelona singer-songwriter Rosalia has collaborated with artists like J Balvin, Ozuna, Travis Scott, and The Weekend. Though it comes to no surprise, she has transcended as a traditional Flamenco performer and has proven to be a versatile musician. In April 2019, she hinted at including American singer Billie Eilish for Euphoria's new soundtrack. Billie's last collaboration was "Lovely" ft. Khalid, single released in 2018.  

In the past two weeks, the video has reached over 42 million views on YouTube. Both singers appear to be in a moody setting; spotlights illuminate their faces—an awe-inspiring performance and dramatizing hand gestures. Towards the end, the camera closes in on Billie, "You say it to me like it's something I have no choice in. If I wasn't important, then why would you waste all your poison?" Her soft soprano voice pours out a vulnerable tone, a heartwrenching moment— ending a heavenly melody, to a melancholy song.

A song you'll be playing on repeat in the year 2021.
