Eilish reveals ‘Barbie’ movie song

Grammy-winning artist Billie Eilish is joining Greta Gerwig and Margot Robbie’s Barbie world with a song for the official soundtrack to the upcoming ‘Barbie’ movie.

Eilish posted news of the song, set to be released on 13 July to her Instagram page on Thursday.

The photo — which features a number of exclamation points, pink emojis and an all-capped “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!” in its caption — is a handwritten note featuring the song’s title “What Was I Made For?” alongside a capital B in the Barbie logo font.

“We made this song for Barbie and it means the absolute worrrrllld to me,” Eilish wrote.

“This movie is gonna change ur lives and hopefully the song will too. Get ready to sob.”

The post came only a few hours after a Time magazine article pointed to the possibility of a single from the “Bad Guy” songstress, alongside another previously unannounced artist.

In a story published in Rolling Stone last month, it was first revealed that the film’s needle drops are “highly specific” to the scenes they’re featured in.

According to Time, Gerwig and Ronson gave each artist on the upcoming soundtrack from Atlantic Records a 20-minute look at the movie for a sense of the tone and narrative, with each performer being told where the team envisioned their song in the plot.

An ’80s-style power ballad for Ken sung by Ryan Gosling is also among the other songs set for the soundtrack, which already released Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night.”

The Barbie movie soundtrack — Barbie the Album — will drop the same day as the film on 21 July and features artists Lizzo, Nicki Minaj, Karol G, Khalid, Ice Spice, Charli XCX, HAIM, The Kid Laroi, Ava Max and more.
