Halsey Reveals Why Lauren Jauregui Was Perfect For 'Strangers' Collaboration

Halsey is dishing out major details about her collab with Fifth Harmony‘s Lauren Jauregui.

The singer spoke with Zach Sang about her upcoming album, highlighting that their song — “Strangers” — was “the first song that I ever wrote where I openly used female pronouns.”

Halsey added about picking Lauren for the collab, “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.”

“I just love that Lauren and I are two women who have a mainstream pop presence doing a love song for the LGBTQ community,” Halsey went on. “It’s unheard of. It’s very rare to see it from a female perspective…”

Sam Smith obviously made waves making records that were so human and so amazing and emotional that it didn’t matter what your sexuality was, you just identified with what he was singing. That’s kind of what I wanted to do with ‘Strangers.’”
