Halsey collaborated with Juice WRLD on "Without You" remix because his music "helped her through" 

ABC/Lou RoccoHalsey's remix of "Without You" featuring Juice WRLD is streaming now. As for why the "Lucid Dreams" rapper is joining her on the track, it seems she was able to find solace in his music.

Halsey tweeted, "when the events that inspired Without Me went down, this artist helped me through it all. now that the song is #1 this only seemed fitting to release... thanks @JuiceWorlddd."

The remix is 30 seconds longer than the original, and features Juice taking on the role of the person about which Halsey is singing.

He raps, "I'm sad inside, but I know it's for the best, right/You had to realize where you drew the line....You've got what I need, bae, I need your spotlight/Along the lines of social suicide, I refuse to die not by your side/So I'll take what I can from you, then I'll hide/And save the lucid dreams for another time."

Halsey also revealed that it was Juice who reached out to her about featuring on the song.

"Nothing quite like celebrating a #1 by having one of your favorite artists ask to jump on it," she tweeted.

In November, Halsey covered "Lucid Dreams" on BBC Radio 1's popular Live Lounge series.
