The latest release from Halsey's album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, is Alone. Alone was definitely one of my favourites from the album, so I was really happy when I found out it would be the next single. However, I didn't expect two features being added onto the song. Big Sean and Stefflon Don were added to the track, and I was both intrigued and excited to hear what it would be like. All three artists are really great, but I would never have predicted them to be on a song together, as I never thought that their sounds would have complimented each other very well. After hearing the new release, I was very much proven wrong. The song in itself remains very much similar to the version on the album, and surprisingly if anything, the features actually make it better. Each artist on the track keeps their individuality, while not dramatically changing the genre of Alone. I think it's great when artists from all different genres come together to work on a song, as it somehow brings in this togetherness within music.
Having artists who aren't very similar in one track is a really enjoyable listen, and I think Halsey made a really great decision adding Big Sean and Stefflon Don to the track.
