Barbie, directed by Greta Gerwig and starring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, has garnered a massive amount of hype leading up to its release. "WE MADE THIS SONG FOR BARBIE AND IT MEANS THE ABSOLUTE WORRRRLLLD TO ME," conceded Eilish in her post. She tagged her brother and frequent producer Finneas, pointing to a collaboration.
