Halsey is on top of the world right now. The U.S. singer has her first leader on the Billboard Hot 100 as a solo artist with “Without Me,” which rises to the summit after a three week stint at No. 2. So now is as good a time as any to release a remix of the track, which she’s just done.
The “Without Me” remix features Juice WRLD in a fresh verse, some added touches of production magic and an extra 30 seconds running time.
On it, he raps: “I’m sad inside, but I know it’s for the best, right/You had to realize where you drew the line/I would cross the line a thousand times/You’ve got what I need, bae, I need your spotlight/Along the lines of social suicide, I refuse to die not by your side/So I’ll take what I can from you, then I’ll hide.”
It’s a favor returned, after Halsey appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge last November to deliver a minimal cover of the Chicago rapper’s hit “Lucid Dreams.”
The original cut of the Louis Bell-produced “Without Me” reached the Hot 100’s pinnacle by leapfrogging Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next,” prompting a “speechless” Halsey to thank her growing fanbase. Halsey previously landed a No. 1 with the Chainsmokers as a guest artist on the 2016 single, “Closer.” Stream the official “Without Me” remix below.
