Billie Eilish dropped her debut record "WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?" yesterday and we are loving it!

On the record, there is a track called "ilomilo" and in a recent interview with Hot Ones, she revealed the meaning behind the title (spoiler: it's adorable).

Apparently, it's named after the computer game "ilomilo" that she used to play a lot:
"I used to play ilomilo a lot. I loved ilomilo, that was like my favourite game in the world. It's this game where it's these two little creatures – one is named ilo and the other's named milo.

It's this sort of anti-gravity world where there's all these little blocks and they start apart from each other. The idea is you just get to each other and when they get to each other they just hug, there's no prize.

So the whole idea of the game is just losing the person you love and then finding them again."

That's so cute.
Let us know what you think of Billie Eilish' new record and this cute song!
