10. "You Should See Me In A Crown" by Billie Eilish

With her unique musical style and amazing vocal ability, Billie Eilish is one of this year's fastest rising solo artists. In a very young age, she's taking the music industry by storm. This song, in particular, is one of Billie's newly released songs. It starts a little mellow and a bit eerie but reveals a more upbeat and electronic sound on the chorus. The savage lyrics are also very fascinating because, despite the somewhat gloomy vibe of the song, it can make us feel very empowered about ourselves.

You should see me in a crown

I'm gonna run this nothing town

Watch me make 'em bow

One by one by, one
