Ego is a 2015 French single by Willy William. It’s written by Frederic Goualard, Willy William, Erwan Lemoine and Mathieu Evain.
Willy William is a renowned French DJ, producer, singer, well known for his creations. Ego is one of his finest works that won accolades world over.
This is a song about a rather surreal life. You see the protagonist having a conversation with the mirror at first seeking validation that fuels his ego. While he does realize, he’s becoming self-obsessed, he loves the grandeur in his fantasy of power and egotism. But gradually he acknowledges that this dream has blinded him and that this matrix is only an illusion and he wishes to step out. And then, the fancy conversation turns hostile and we see him pleading the mirror to help him release his ego.
The video is sensational, showing William seeking from the mirror, and in the end, brushing off the smoke- a beautiful symbol used for his ‘ego’.
