The term “sophomore slump” does not seem to apply to Halsey. The pop singer-songwriter recently released her second full-length studio album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, which just debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Prior to that, she had peaked at No. 2 on the chart with Badlands in 2015.
She’s currently on her way toward a whopping one billion Spotify streams and will be embarking on a world tour this fall with special guests PartyNextDoor and Charli XCX. With her songs reaching a new level of mainstream exposure, Billboard Dance decided to round up the best Halsey remixes.
1. Halsey – “Ghost” (Lost Kings Remix)
Halsey’s song “Ghost” is built on hollow percussive hits, chimes and a staticy bass line that sounds like it can electrify its counterparts at any moment. Lost Kings lessen the charge with a bubbly, lighthearted rework that is exceptionally refreshing.
2. Halsey – “Hurricane” (Arty Remix)
Arty’s progressive house remix of “Hurricane” is filled with euphoria and melodic goodness that’s hard not to dance to.
3. Halsey – “Gasoline “(Oscar’s Remix)
Los Angeles up-and-comer Oscar was 15 years old when he produced this bone-chilling remix of Halsey’s “Gasoline”. The sultry rework is doused in heavy bass synths that will hit you from every angle.
4. Halsey – “Now Or Never” (Slander Remix)
Quickly rising trap duo Slander have taken “Now Or Never” from Halsey’s Hopeless Fountain Kingdom LP and given it the future bass treatment. This remix will be coming to a festival near you.
5. Halsey – “Colors” (Audien Remix)
Audien truly brings Halsey’s song “Colors” to life with his rich chords and percussion. Grab your friends, head to the middle of the crowd and take in the larger-than-life melodies.
6. Halsey – “New Americana” (OLWIK Remix)
Young Swedish producer OLWIK strips Halsey’s “New Americana” of its dark anthemic production and replaces it with an upbeat landscape decorated with rock guitar riffs, lush piano chords and spirited vocal chops.
7. Halsey – “Colors” (Blonde Remix)
Blonde‘s house remake of “Colors” finds a happy medium between thumping club play and background music for work. Impress your friends with this eclectic remix.
