Billie Eilish is currently gearing up for the release of her sophomore album and has just released her newest single from the cycle, “Lost Cause.” Along with the single, Billie also dropped a new music video for the song, and fans are definitely having strong reactions to it.

The song sees Billie singing to a former lover that she was wrong about them when she thought they had their s**t together when really they’re just a lost cause with no job. However, the somber quality of the music and its message are contrasted with the high-energy music video in which Billie and a large group of friends hang out, sing, dance, and eat snacks, reminiscent of your classic high school sleepover.

Music fans with a keen eye didn’t take long to start comparing Billie’s new video to another one set inside a large mansion in which friends dance and twerk to a song. Any guesses? We’re talking about “7/11” from the platinum edition of Beyonce’s self-titled album that broke the internet in 2014.

So check out both of the videos … What do you say? Do you think that Billie was inspired by Beyonce when she created her new “Lost Cause” video?
