After a year-long wait, the video for Halsey and Lauren Jauregui’s duet “Strangers” is finally here.
The video is a prequel to Halsey’s previous self-directed hopeless fountain kingdom videos, all of which follow the same narrative about star-crossed lovers Luna and Solis. The “Strangers” video finds Halsey’s Luna in the boxing ring with Lauren’s character, Rosa.
Luna, dressed in red, and Rosa, dressed in white, throw punches until they’re bloodied. Luna ends up knocking Rosa out and winning the match.
After the match, Luna meets Solis, thus kicking off the journey that plays out in her videos for “Now or Never,” “Bad at Love,” “Sorry” and “Alone.”
