  • i think its absolutely beautiful how she created an entire story with her online character , crybaby was in the beginning a “baby” and then she went to k-12 in where she died , therefore bringing on this new character , i jus wanna know what she will name this and how she will show it in concerts , absolutely beautiful melanie , i love you

    • We already know how she's showing it in concerts

  • I have to admit, the character she uses is both terrifying, unsettling, and the most mythical thing i've ever seen. I'm so proud of the development you've gone through Melanie. It makes me so happy to see just how far you've come. Thank you, for everything

    • i lost my father in early January she really makes music for just the right timing, this song really tells us that our loved ones are always here with us atleast spirituality. can’t wait for the mv 🤍 (sending love to you & enteral peace to you’re beautiful grandmother!)

    • Death is not real fam. Every day we sleep, we are essentially dead. You leave body and your awareness goes elsewhere

  • facts: the song is very calming.

  • People say this new album is so different from the others but it still give off the classic Mel vibes like the others. It has the weird vibes like always and that’s why I love Mel and their songs

    • it is so different than the others. there’s no more crybaby

  • I no longer fear death because of this album

  • I want to take a moment and talk about this new era of Melanie's. First off I want to say Melanie hasn't "changed". Melanie is the same person she's always been, her character Cry Baby has just evolved. Second the music this era is maybe the most authentic music we've gotten from Melanie as it is self produced. If you simply don't like the new sound/look that is completely fine, you can go back and listen to/watch the songs from her previous albums, they aren't gone. If you are a fan of Melanie you will respect her decision to create the type of art she wants to create 🧚🏼‍♀️💗

    • AGREED

    • Only thing I disagree with how she handled this metamorphosis on her actual youtube channel. Changing the thumbnails to the same "RIP crybaby" makes it hella hard to try and rewatch anything besides her new stuff. And the comments are all turned off. So much history of early fan interactions gone.

    • @@TheSucculentLesbian I get it but like, you can just look at the titles? Also All of her comments were turned off before her metamorphosis i think.

    • @@mikudayo_biggest_fan3939 I know that, honestly its not too big of a deal, its just a little sad to see the thumbnails go 😥

    • I’m sure the old thumbnails will return after this era is over; I can’t see why they would stay. Unless it’s to really put emphasis on CryBaby’s death, but that kind of long term decision seems… jarring say the least, for fans and new listeners after the Portals era will end.

  • Lets be honest here, we were surprised because of her new change of appearance and aesthetic, but that doesn’t mean she has done making amazing music. She’s still going, and it’s amazing and admiring. LOVE YOU MELANIE❤️‼️

    • YOU LOVE HER AND I LOVE YOU, WILL YOU MARRY ME?

  • MELANIES THOUGHTS ON THE SONG- I usually have titles picked out early on in the conceptual phase of an album before even writing anything. This one was a must, and I just wasn't getting it right anytime I tried writing it with other people. One day, I sat in the portal room alone and started singing melodies. I heard a spirit with a completely different tone than mine repeat a melody I had sung out loud in the silence and it sent a chill down my body. I was really scared at first, then continued on, using that moment as confirmation from the other side. I laid down the chords after hours of searching through Omnisphere for an instrument that would reverberate through my soul. I added a simple drum loop in the chorus (that was later replaced by production from my favorite collaborator CJ Baran, as well as live drums from Ilan Rubin of Nine Inch Nails - who also put drums down for a couple of other songs.) When I was done writing the song, that same day I played it for my best friend of 22 years who is like my sister. She had just experienced multiple losses in her family. While she was listening on headphones, tears rolled through. The song ended, she looked at me and said "that's the one."

  • i dont know why but everytime ive decided to play this song right when melanie starts singing i can feel myself tearing up. i cant tell if its because i know ill miss crybaby or if theres some other reason but i love the emotion this song gives me

    • Literally me!! 😢🤚 We’ll all miss Crybaby ❤

  • If this song ain’t playing at my funeral I’m not dying

    • you also need someone to borrow your phone and text everyone "Thanks for coming."

  • I searched it up, and this means she's back, but she's changed. So therefore metaphorically, her old self has 'died' and now she's back from the 'dead'. Her years of being inactive from Singing has changed her, and gave her a new perspective of life. This is a message to the fans that she's back, and ready to Slay again 💅

  • I just watched the movie again. I love how portals intertwines with K-12. Crybaby always explained that she’s never scared of death. I love how this song intertwines with that meaning. Another thing I love is the fact that Melanie always has a story with her music. It’s not just music, it’s a whole series. It gives us something to theorize about while we don’t have that much information. I really do hope we get another movie with portals. It would be such an amazing sequel with K-12. Love you Mel

  • I love the lines "When you're not around I sink into the ground, I try to pretend I'm closer to you, never understanding you're always on my mind I cannot help it" it feels very relatable, like you can relate to it if you can relate to it like a relationship, a friendship, or someone you've lost in general. I've been listening to Melanie for so long and I feel as if she writes songs about all the fucked up things in our society or something that she could have went through, it seems like it's a way to cope with trauma (not saying that she has trauma from the past) but I loved the K-12 album and movie even the afterschool part which has "Test Me" and "The Bakery". Melanie you're songs have the best meanings and it's so cool how you film movies to go along with the albums it's like figuring out a escape room because were adding up everything even to figure out the song meanings in you're new album. We Love You Melanie!❤

  • 3 days after PORTALS dropped, my aunt passed away. She was very close family, closer than the average aunt. We were on the way to vacation when it happened, and all I can recall is tears running down my face like a faucet, while DEATH screamed in my ear. This song saved me, and revitalized my views on life and death. I know she will probably never see this, but thank you Mel. You truly bring beauty to the darkest parts of our existence.

  • I'm not a Melanie fan, but when I listened to the full song for the first time... OMFG WHAT A MASTERPIECE Now it's hard to defeat my new favorite #1 track of all albums I ever listened to.

  • Melanie’s definitely one of my favorite poets 🖤 she makes even death look like a beautiful painting

  • I’ve heard this song many times. Whenever I listen to it, my head cannon of the song is: it’s a story being told by the earthbound spirit of a girl who died recently, say weeks or months ago, and is conveying her sorrowful, melancholy tale of how she died, and how lonely she is, to a group of friends and family, and other witnesses. Conveying to them how difficult it is for her to communicate, so close yet so far, she states how she can interact with the living. To a limited degree, but is “back” from limbo to find the killer.

  • Melanie comes out with this a month after my little sister passes from a car wreck. I hope she knows how much she heals through her art, because I just cried to these lyrics and laughed because this is what my sister would totally say to me. She’s not dead, she’s just transformed.

    • I'm sorry for you're loss

    • I’m so sorry.

    • I'm so sorry for your loss, it has been a month or 2 since I lost my online best friend due to suicide and it has been so hard.. but it will be okay stranger! it will all be okay.

I’m incredibly grateful to grow with Melanie, I have been listing since I was 8, it’s crazy that I saw her singing dollhouse and I was jamming along to it in my living room, and now I’m mourning crybaby and happy to welcome this new creature. I can’t be more grateful for Mel and her new character and music!💗💗

  • I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MELANIE!!!!!!

  • She was a huge part of my childhood and I can't wait to see this new generation and how it will turn out❤

  • I can't help but look at my scars while listening to this song. I really hurt myself back then. But I am a completely different person now. I have to take care of myself. I'm back from the dead.

    • I THOUGHT I WAS THE ONLY ONE- yeah I'm kinda pissed that I even had a reason to do that to myself but I'm at the same proud that I was able to get through it. And I'm proud of you too. Let's come back from the dead together.

    • @@vinnyisagoner Yes. I am proud of you, too. ❤

  • The fact that most of the album was made in the room of her old house that had the most spiritual Energy just gives the the whole album more eerie yet beautiful feeling to it. Thank you Melanie

  • "I'm back from the dead, back from the dead" gives me chills, beautiful.

  • BEST COMEBACK EVER!!!!! WE REALLY THOUGHT “MEL” WAS BACK BUT MEL WAS BACK

  • Best opener ever

  • i feel like in k-12 crybaby was in her youth, but now in portals shes more developed and a nymph. melanie really dedicated her all to looking completely different then she did before. i cant believe she was able to make her songs so deep but also help them follow such a good story.

  • Happy 1 month of PORTALS 🧚🏼‍♀️💗✨️

  • Okay, but just imagine the music video for this. It’s going to be PHENOMENAL.

    • It would be perfect

    • when is it coming out?

    • ​@@ok-zi7bj i think march 31

    • @@claradenisse1111 are you sure? i saw someone people saying that its gonna be released today but im not sure when

    • @ok-zi7bj yeah I thought the music video was gonna be released it's just the audio. The album will release in 31st.

  • I SWEAR IM LITERALLY SCREAMING I LOVE THIS SO MUCH AND THE MUSIC VIDEO IS PERFECTIONNNN

  • gw cari sendiri penyanyi ini karena habis dgr lagu nya yg Teacher's pet, dan secara random aja ngeklik lagu yg ini karena tujuan awal gw buat dgr lagu melanie yg lainnya, kebetulan turun hujan disini sambil gw dengerin rasanya bagus bgt, kalo ada kata yg mendeskripsikan lebih dari sekedar "bagus", jelas maksud gw itu sih..

  • Please don't ever worry I know its morbid but we all die one day

  • Like idk y’all but moon cycle is so good, the “yah” sounds so comfident 🛐

  • I love the part from 0:00 to 5:07 such an amazing song 😻

  • “Death has come to me, kissed me on the cheek, gave me closure.” ( 1:46 ) that is so incredibly beautiful.

    • O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:55-57

  • Congrats on the Billboard Hot 100 entry Melanie, you deserve it so much and everything else 🧚🏼‍♀️💗

  • i think some ppl do niot remember that crybaby canonically has had past lives she doesn't remember and her 'death' is just being reborn into a new character, just like how she died and became crybaby before

  • Happy birthday Melanie!! 🎉🥳🎊✨️💗🧚🏼‍♀️

  • This song popped up in my head and I immediately put it on. I would listen to it endlessly when it was released. And today listening to it for the first time in months- it’s as if it transported me back to that time. Singing to it and feeling the beat- it’s radiating my heart. It’s making me cry. This will always be a special song to me

  • Did anyone else notice she changed all her other videos thumbnails to rip crybaby?

  • THIS is what I call a Comeback!! I’ve never been disappointed by this lady

    • Say it louder for the peeps in the back! 😎😤✊

  • PORTALS is my album of the year 🧚🏼‍♀️💗✨️

  • this song is so good.. it doesn't matter if you change your aesthetic, or the rhythm, aesthetic, style of the song, your music will always be good Melanie because it's your music 😃❤️

  • this song is so absolutly Melanie Martinez. new Crybabies talk so much yet know so little "this isn't like Melanie" pls bfr.

  • 10 months of DEATH ⚰️💗

  • the way she changed all the thumbnails of everything to rip crybaby and made a comeback saying she’s back from the death is so amazing

  • Even if you don't like her music or concept, you have to agree that Melanie is probably one of the few artists that actually gave deep thought on what she wants to say

  • Wow… an unexpected but interesting change in her aesthetics and music, I wonder what else is next up in the series

  • oh take me back to the beginning of this era

  • 私は貴女の世界観が独特で表現の在り方が好きです😊

  • The visuals are insane! It's giving me fricking chills!

  • I freaking love this song!!!! I haven’t listened to Melanie in such a long time but I’m loving this new vibe. I’ve listened to this song like 10 times already 🩷

  • ''please dont ever worry, ik its morbid but we all die one day''

    • People were saying those are crybaby’s last words

  • “i don’t wanna be carrying the weight on my shoulders death has come to me, kissed me on the cheek gave me closure” these lyrics ugh :’) 🤍💜
