Eilish was speaking on the latest episode of her Apple Music radio show ‘me & dad radio’, which she hosts along with her dad Patrick.
“Everybody knows Tyler has inspired every part of everything about me,” the singer said. “Basically, I’ve been a fan of Tyler’s forever, and I never really got to listen to all of this album [‘Igor’].”
Eilish said that she only heard ‘New Magic Wand’ for the first time at this year’s Grammys when Tyler performed the track during his electrifying live performance at the ceremony.
The Grammys saw big returns for both Eilish and Tyler, with the latter picking up Best Rap Album for ‘Igor’. Eilish won five Grammys, including Record of the Year and Album of the Year.
The short film sees the singer tackling body-shaming in a spoken-word piece as she asks her detractors: “Is my value based only on your perception? Or is your opinion of me not my responsibility?”
