2017 has been a great year for G-Eazy and Halsey. Earlier this month, the rapper released his fourth studio album ‘The Beautiful And Damned’ and Halsey has been dominating the charts with her recent hit ‘Bad At Love’. However, the real-life couple has joined forces for one of the songs of the summer and the next single off the rapper’s album – a track titled ‘Him & I’.
Over the past few months, the gorgeous couple has been photographed numerous times and their chemistry translates beautifully into song on the piece. The song is about a wild, reckless love – one that you know may not seem like a great idea on paper but the feelings are strong, passionate and fiery. G-Eazy and Halsey seem to have that passionate chemistry. The rapper is one of our favourites right now. He has an incredible storytelling ability and does a fantastic job bringing this Romeo and Juliet-like story to life. Halsey has a sweet, soothing vocal with a dark edge which makes her the perfect featured artist for the track. The collaboration is special because it highlights each artists’ personality and talent instead of elevating that of the lead singer.
Naturally, G-Eazy was excited to work with his girlfriend on the song. “It was super important to get her on the album. She’s incredible, and I’ve been a big fan of hers for a long time, even before she was my girlfriend. Telling a story like the one we tell on [“Him & I”] adds a level of authenticity and honesty to our love story and [explores] how love fits into this crazy lifestyle that we live,” he says. “I think she’s an incredibly talented artist who has accomplished so much at such a young age. She’s one of the biggest artists in the whole world. At 22 years old, that’s pretty phenomenal. ‘Him & I’ is a Bonnie and Clyde song. It’s a pretty intense, crazy in love song. She killed the record. She sounds phenomenal on it.” The track is something different and we have a feeling it’s going to be one of their biggest hits to date.
