Following Juice WRLD‘s sudden death in December 2019, friends, fans and collaborators alike have been keeping his spirit alive through various covers and tributes. Now, Juice WRLD’s song with previous collaborator Halsey is finally out for everyone to hear.
“Life’s A Mess” is off of his Juice WRLD’s posthumous album Legends Never Die.
Both Juice WRLD and Halsey have worked together in the past. They teamed up together for a remix of her hit single “Without Me” at the start of 2019. As well, in 2018, Halsey shared a cover of Juice WRLD’s “Lucid Dreams” and talked about his genre-bending style.
Now, their collaboration “Life’s A Mess” is out for everyone to hear. Following its release, Halsey shared a post talking about the late rapper and the first time she heard the new song. She also shared a photo with the song’s title tattooed across her hand.
“Juice was one of the greatest people I have ever known,” she says. “And one of the most brilliant artists we will ever live to witness. A true genius who had lyric and melody spilling out of him without any second thought or hesitation. And a beautiful soul who believed in spreading love and creating a community for people to feel less alone. It means everything to me that I could be part of this album. I cried the first time that I heard it. With all the love in my heart. #lljw.”

The emotional new collaboration is accompanied by a visual video that shows artist David Garibaldi painting a photo of Juice WRLD and Halsey. The photo was originally shared by Halsey following the rapper’s passing.
“Sweet boy. The fastest brain in the game. Your creativity, endless. Immortal. Rest in power. I can’t even explain the sadness,” Halsey says.
“Life’s A Mess” is off of Juice WRLD’s posthumous album Legends Never Die which arrives this Friday, July 10. Along with the album’s announcement, a new merch collaboration with the gaming organization FaZe Clan has launched. The collection is inspired by the friendship between Juice WRLD and various FaZe Clan members. Together, they all shared a common love of video games.
