Halsey's "Now Or Never" Video
There is a lot going on in Halsey's directorial debut and first video of her sophomore era.

Jhene Aiko is one of the more unexpected artists featured in the Chainsmokers‘ debut album Memories … Do Not Open, out today (April 7). Turns out, she is also a much-needed presence.

While Memories mostly has resident singer Drew Taggart on vocals, “Wake Up Alone” features plush vocals by Aiko, adding heart to what would otherwise be a sterile electro-pop ballad. “You got real close, say I’m not alone, you understand me,” she sings, “but late at night, when I close my eyes, the quiet scares me.”

Memories … Do Not Open also features ColdplayFlorida Georgia Line and “Paris” vocalist Emily Warren. What the album doesn’t feature, though, is  breakthrough hit “Closer.”

Listen to “Wake Up Alone” for a taste of Memories below.
