American singer Halsey has collaborated with DJ Marshmello on a new track called “Be Kind“, and it is the reassuring Hallmark pop track you just might need right now.
The track dropped earlier today, without much ado about the collaboration. The video is a montage lyric video, quite typical of both Halsey and Marshmello‘s aesthetic. “Be Kind” isn’t Halsey‘s first DJ-pop rodeo. The singer, also known as Ashley Frangipane, has collaborated with many DJs in the past; one of her biggest singles to date, “Closer“, was with the DJ duo – ‘The Chainsmokers’.
“Be Kind” comes at a tough time for the world, as we fight tirelessly against the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, just a few weeks before this project, Halsey had been spearheading relief efforts. And so, it isn’t surprising that the track serves as a reminder of sorts – to “be kind to the one you love”.
Marshmello‘s signature sparkly, acoustic dance beat is evident on this track like all his others. Halsey too uses similar styles of singing and writing. Initial reactions have been positive, with fans elated just to receive new music from the artists.
“Be Kind” is out now on all streaming platforms.
