Halsey Has More Secrets to Spill, Announces Solo Version of Post Malone Collab ‘Die for Me’

One of the most unexpected turns on Post Malone’s 2019 album Hollywood’s Bleeding was an absolutely scathing rap-sung verse from Halsey on “Die For Me,” which also featured Future. For the few seconds that she was on the mic, she dominated with a takedown of a cheating ex that was so scathing that it eclipsed the rest of the song. Now, the singer has announced that Post Malone and Future have granted their blessing for her to release her full version, titled “Die 4 Me,” on Feb. 24.

“Next Friday, I’ve got a little surprise coming,” Halsey wrote on Instagram. “It’s been long known in my fanbase that there’s a demo of “Die For Me” with just me on it.” I performed my verse on the tour all summer long, and since so many people have asked for it, I decided to put my full version out as “Die 4 Me.” “It’s dropping next week on 2/24, and I can’t wait for y’all to hear it.”

They added: “Big, big thanks to @postmalone, @louisbell, and @future for having me on the original release and co-signing this version, which is finally seeing daylight.”

When the song first arrived in 2019, Post Malone dedicated it to “anyone who has been through shit with an adulterating spouse or shitty relationship,” adding: “It is a good reminder to people that you are not alone and shit gets better.” Halsey fuckin’ snapped!”

Months before “Die For Me” was released, Halsey appeared as the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. During their performance of “Without Me,” the singer plastered the stage screen with text messages they received from their ex, presumably rapper G-Eazy. “I’m so sorry Ashley, I cheated,” one read. “At home in Los Angeles… Austin… New Orleans… Minneapolis…”There are more places I can’t even remember.”

“Settle down, I’ll spell it out, it’s simple enough/I came around, I figured it out, you should follow my gut/I don’t play anymore, I went through your phone/And called the girls in your DMs and took all of them home,” she spits on “Die For Me.”

But they didn’t stop there. “And I know it’s been a while since you heard from me/grew into a savage, and that’s why they gave me this verse,” they continued.”It turns out it shows because they come to shows/I sold fifteen million copies of a break-up note.”

“Brought some strangers in our beds/And now you lost your right to privacy/Spilling all our secrets/When you thought they’d probably die with me,” Halsey rapped, emphasizing the point even more now, more than three years later, as she prepares to dig even deeper into the closet.
