Halsey keeps her eyes wide open in the candy colored video for “Alone.” The singer arrives ready for some underground exploration at the party dubbed “A Celebration of Death” in the visually stunning clip for the remix of the song from her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, featuring Big Sean and Stefflon Don. Both guests make appearances in the piece which is co-directed by the singer and Hannah Lux Davis, and finds Halsey strutting into frame in a golden-glittered body suit as she heads to a masquerade ball. Halsey tackles the first verse with a cinematic flair while pursuing a past lover from her “Now or Never” music video.
Surrounded by guests in flashy costumes with questionable motives, Halsey croons her way through the eclectic crowd until she spots the angelic man in the balcony. When she notices her winged ex-lover being caressed by another woman (who also has blue hair as Halsey did in the previous video,) she’s overwhelmed with emotion, and runs to a fountain to vomit. Halsey later explains via Twitter that she is “purging herself of Solis,” which is the mans name. Luckily, Big Sean is there to console her. “Let’s hit the Maldives and hide behind palm trees, little red wine, weed and a calm breeze,” the rapper spits to Halsey. “Cuz baby you’ve been living life inside a bubble…when the last time you had somebody love you?”
For the final verse, the beat breaks down and allows Stefflon to add her Jamaican flare. “You always tell me say me full of attitude, and you don’t like mi friend ‘cause she rude,” she pens to an ex-lover of her own. “Still I pull up in the Benz with tha all gold ting.” The clip ends with Halsey smiling in a rain of confetti as the lover is left puzzling over a cryptic note she’s left behind.
