Halsey is back with some new music! On Friday, February 24th, the singer treated fans to a song called "Die 4 Me" which is an extended solo version of a previous Post Malone song they were featured on. The song, "Die For Me," was a deep cut on the rapper's 2019 album Hollywood's Bleeding which feature both Halsey and Future. On the original track, Halsey sang an emotional verse that featured lyrics like, "And I know it's been a while since the last time you heard from me/ Grew into a savage and that's why they gave this verse to me/ Turns out it shows 'cause they turn out at shows/ I sold fifteen million copies of a break-up note." The verse, as well as other songs in their discography, was reportedly about their breakup with rapper G-Eazy.
But the singer had more to say. In their fully fleshed-out solo version, Halsey adds a new verse in addition to their feature on Post's track. "I hope you think about me every time you touch it/ I hope your new girl hears it and she loves it/ Devil's front door and I'm bangin' on the line/ If I said I want a answer, I'd be lyin', I'd be lyin', yeah/ They say what the devil can't do/ He's gon' send a woman to/ You seek to hide, you're dead inside, won't see me cry."
Halsey's version of "Die 4 Me" also features a new bridge that seems to put the lyrical back-and-forth with G-Eazy to rest. "This is the last time, I'ma do you the honor/ I gave you a headline, I know I shouldn't bother/ This is a lesson to take, hold someone tight and they break/ Then you say it's a mistake, but you meant it anyway," they sing. "Now you can blame me, tell them you made me/ Ignore the s—t that you did on the daily/ Think that you played me but you can save me/ All of that s—t 'bout how I'm f—in' crazy."
