In the deluxe version of his 2020 album, ‘Music to be Murdered by’, the track ‘Alfred’s Song’ includes a line about how scary Billie found him.
Thy lyric is: ‘Homicidal visions when I’m spitting like this. But really I’m just fulfilling my wish of killing rhymes which is really childish. And silly, but I’m really like this, I’m giving nightmares to Billie Eilish.’
Whether or not she’s still afraid of the rapper is unknown, but Billie did make sure to join in with the standing ovation he received at the 2020 Oscars.
