“Without Me (Remix)” by Halsey (Ft. Juice WRLD)
As the title implies, “Without Me (Remix)” is the official remix of Halsey’s 2018 hit single “Without Me“. This song features Halsey and rapper Juice WRLD. The lyrics of this remix have the same theme as the original.
The song’s lyrics see the narrators (Halsey and Juice WRLD) lamenting on the sadness their respective lovers inject into their hearts by treating them unfairly. They loved their respective significant others and treated them well. However, these lovers took advantage of them, leaving them with broken hearts.
Readers should note that the original version of this song was heavily inspired by the demise of Halsey’s relationship with rapper G-Eazy.

A day before the song’s release, Halsey took to Twitter to announce the song as well as its release date. According to her, it was WRLD who came up with the idea of making a remix of the track with him being featured on it.
She later revealed in another tweet that Juice WRLD helped her cope with the sadness that gripped her following her split from G-Eazy. This simply shows the closeness of the relationship between WRLD and Halsey (at least as of the time the song was recorded and released).
