Fans naturally freaked out when Halsey announced the one and only Lauren Jauregui would be featured on her new album hopeless fountain kingdom for the duet "Strangers." They each have such different tones to their voices and together, well it sounds like magic. The song is a legit a jam but more importantly, it's a love song between two girls and having a song that proudly tells a LGBT story is something that simply shouldn't be a rarity anymore and their aim hearing this from two singers who are in mainstream pop is nothing short of legendary.
The beauties and real life BFFs finally performed the song together for the first time The Today Show and it was a pleasant surprise for fans that Halsey invited Lauren on stage with her. They of course brought all the drama to the stage, since the song is v dramatic.
And they literally slayed. Take a look:

Both singers took to Instagram to share adorable selfies after they slayed the stage together too, with Halsey posting a mega-adorable cuddly pic of the pair.
"reina ?," she wrote in the caption, which means queen in Spanish.
Just precious. Halsey has said before that she's proud of what they accomplished together with recording "Strangers."
"Lauren is a friend of mine and she is openly bisexual and so am I. Our fans, really this past year, have just really expressed so much support and so much love and indication that they relate to us and that they are happy to us be outspoken about it," she said in an interview with The Zach Sang Show. "I was thinking to myself, 'if I want this song to be believable it needs to be real.' So I'm not going to put a girl on this song to sing who is straight. I'm just not going to do it. So I reached out to Lauren, she came in and cut the vocal and it sounds awesome."
Let's hope this is a sign of more songs to come from these two!
