Halsey ‘SNL’ Performance Of “Him & I” With G-Eazy – WATCH VIDEO
Halsey sang “Him & I” with G-Eazy on this week’s “SNL.” Earlier, Halsey performed “Bad At Love” on “Saturday Night Live.” See the video below of Halsey and G-Eazy singing their hit on the sketch comedy series.
As Gossip Cop noted earlier, this is Halsey’s first appearance on “SNL.” It’s not, however, the first time she’s sung “Him & I” on TV with her boyfriend G-Eazy, on whose album, The Beautiful & Damned, the song is featured. They first performed the tune, which they wrote together, on the December 12 show of “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and then duetted again a week later on “Good Morning America.”
The music video for “Him & I” opens with a shot of the Brooklyn Bridge and a quote from the F. Scott Fitzgerald book, The Beautiful and Damned, that reads, “They were stars on this stage. Each playing to an audience of two.” And, in fact, the music video is basically of Halsey and G-Eazy in New York doing a number of mundane things, but essentially focused on each other. They’re seen taking the subway, walking on the city’s streets, playing pool, doing shots in a bar, and kissing throughout the Big Apple. The video was posted just a month ago, and to date it’s been viewed more than 85 million times.
The song has been praised for allowing both Halsey’s voice to shine through, while interspersed with G-Eazy’s rapping. “Him & I” reached number 15 on the Billboard Top 100 chart. It also reached number seven on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, 18 on the Hot Mainstream Top 40 chart, and 11 on its Rhythmic chart.
In the hours and days leading up to her debut on the late-night comedy program, Halsey turned to social media to promote her appearance. She tweeted just a few days ago, ” I’m really excited… Can’t believe this is happening!” Check out the video below of Halsey performing “Him & I” with G-Eazy on this week’s “Saturday Night Live.”
