TroyBoi reworks Billie Eilish’s ‘my boy’ into astonishing trap-laden ‘MyBoi’
Billie Eilish left an indelible mark on pop music in 2017 and proved to be a fervent artist whose haunting, harmony-filled ballads diminish any and all suspected innocence. Despite her young age, Eilish’s immensely talented and brimming with fervent passion. After the release of her debut album, don’t smile at me, mid-2017, she’s already seen an official remix for “COPYCAT” from the vastly-ascending indie-pop duo, Sofi Tukker, and now, London’s trap auteur TroyBoi has taken on “my boy.”
With vocals as sultry and dulcetly-delivered as Eilish’s, it’s small wonder TroyBoi was able to create a compelling rework. Though as much as Eilish’s vocals are compelling, TroyBoi’s tempo modifications candidly elevate “my boy” to the tempestuous “MyBoi.” With chopped vocals, intricate hi-hats, substantial kicks, and bass-laden flair, TroyBoi sees Eilish’s “my boy” and raises it to anthemic trap heights.
