KEY POINTS

  • Billie Eilish is set to release her second full album on July  30
  • Her latest single, "NDA," has not yet charted since its release
  • Critics of the singer claim she's in her "flop era"

Billie Eilish threw shade on bashers who claim she’s in her “flop era” and that she’s experiencing a bit of a sophomore slump. On Monday, the “Ocean Eyes” singer took to TikTok to respond to her critics the cheekiest way possible.

Eilish, whose debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” was a global hit, has been facing criticism from sections of her fanbase. Her latest releases, “Lost Cause” and “NDA,” which have seen a change in style from the multi-Grammy Award winner, haven’t had the same success as her earlier hits.

As Eilish prepares for the release of her sophomore album “Happier Than Ever” on July 30, she shared on Monday a TikTok video of herself hitting back at her critics with a fierce message.

In a close-up shot of herself, Eilish gave a look of disbelief as her song “NDA” played in the background and the words “Is it just me or is Billie in her flop era like why does she suck now?” floated above her head. Dunking on haters who had said her second full-length album might be a disappointment, she captioned her post, “Literally all I see on this app. Eat my dust, my t*ts are bigger than yours.

“NDA” is Eilish’s fifth song release ahead of her highly anticipated sophomore album. On July 9, she revealed on Instagram the fear that filming the “NDA” music video had given her mother. In the post, her mother, Maggie Baird, gasped for air as the singer fell to the ground while the cars raced past her. “Hope u liked it (also pls enjoy the fifth slide of my mom and team losing their minds being scaredy), she wrote in the caption.

Eilish has not had a No. 1 single since “Bad Guy.” “NDA,” her fifth song release from her sophomore album that came on the heels of “My Future, “Therefore I Am,” “Your Power,” and “Lost Cause,” has not yet charted since its release. While “My Future,” “Therefore I Am,” and “Your Power” have achieved a Top 10 spot on the Billboard Hot 100, “Lost Cause” has only peaked at No. 27 on the chart.
