As we continue to bask in the nostalgic heartbreak of Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour debut album, we’ve stumbled across this mashup of “Drivers License” and Billie Eilish’s “Ocean Eyes,” originally posted to music producer @carneyval’s TikTok account. The mix, which opens just before the beat drops in “Drivers License,” flows easily into “Ocean Eyes” as Eilish launches into the lyrics, “I’ve been watching you for some time / Can’t stop starin’ at those ocean eyes.” For a two-minute song, this mashup is seamless. The mashup was first released back in January, but it’s making the rounds once again.
Eilish also made headlines this week after she apologized for mouthing a racial slur in a recently resurfaced video from when she was younger. “I love you guys, and many of you have been asking me to address this. And this is something I WANT to address because I’m being labeled something that I am not,” Eilish wrote on Instagram. “There’s a video edit going around of me when I was 13 or 14 where I mouthed a word from a song that at the time I didn’t know was a derogatory term used against members of the Asian community,” she said, referencing Tyler, the Creator’s 2011 song “Fish.” “I am appalled and embarrassed and want to barf that I ever mouthed along to that word. This song is the only time I’d ever heard that word as it was never used around me by anyone in my family. Regardless of the ignorance and age at the time, nothing excuses the fact that it was hurtful. And for that I am sorry.”
