“Strangers” by Halsey feat. Lauren Jauregui

Halsey-y-Lauren-Jauregui
Hello, strangers. After detouring into everything from EDM-assisted no. 1 song “Closer” to uber-contemporary production elements of “Now or Never”, Halsey is back with a genre-defying single “Strangers” from hopelessfountainkingdom album. “Strangers” features Fifth Harmony member Lauren Jauregui on a soft, 80’s inspired sonic surprise that sounds brazen and bold yet lyrically mature voiced with the hard-won wisdom of two formidable women of the music industry today.

“Strangers” talks about loss and love and sung on the perspective of bisexual women. The song opens strongly with “She doesn’t kiss me on the mouth anymore”, punching a pack of a resonant and confessional fare without much fanfare in terms of musicality and pop elements that will give you a last song syndrome or an affirmation by Jauregui in “We’re not lovers / We’re just strangers / With the same damn hunger”

However, it will always be personal and special to both Halsey and Jauregui whose voices carry weight for those whom they represented.
