Illenium has done wonders with Halsey’s “Without Me,” to the point where fans are now calling this song his. The producer unleashed his version of the track for the first time ever at EDC Orlando and it was truly special.
But, a fun, little backstory first… I remember Halsey taking the mic at Okeechobee this year and she said something along the lines of — “What’s the worst song you can imagine? The absolute worst? What song is so annoying that you just can’t stand it?” etc. etc.
There was chatter amongst the crowd and she took to the mic again, “Oh yeah, I’m going there…” Then, she proceeded into a gorgeous, ballad-like version of her collaboration with The Chainsmokers, “Closer.” No doubt, that insanely popular song has become notorious — people either love it, or love to hate on it.
Anyways, this is definitely not that song. We just hope Halsey gets some credit where the credit is due, because she’s an amazing artist. Her and Illenium together sound like pure, unfiltered magic.
Watch below and let us know if you’re loving it as much as we are!
