Halsey‘s hopeless fountain kingdom has revealed that she had teamed up with Fifth Harmony star Lauren Jauregui on a collaboration called “Strangers” and now, thanks to a new radio interview with Zach Sang, we know what the track is all about.
Chatting with the radio show host, Halsey shared that “Strangers” is a pro-LGBTQ love song. “I just love that Lauren and I are two women who have a mainstream pop presence doing a love song for the LGBTQ community. It’s unheard of. It’s very rare to see it from a female perspective,” she dished about the upcoming tune.
Meanwhile, Jauregui was an obvious choice for the progressive duet, as Halsey explained during her interview. “I was thinking to myself, if I want this song to be believable, it needs to be real, so I’m not going to put a girl on the song to sing who’s straight. I’m just not going to do it. So I reached out to Lauren, and she came in and she cut the vocal and it sounds awesome,” the singer-songwriter said, adding, “Our voices sound really cool together because we both have really raspy voices. Mine’s a little more delicate than hers. Hers is like really powerful and big and raspy, and mine is kind of like light and raspy. But it’s really cool.”
