Song by Marshmello & Halsey Produced by Released: 1 May 2020
“Be Kind” is an empowering song that questions the motives of a significant other in a relationship. Instead of fully committing to the relationship, the person seems to be searching for something new.
Amidst all of this, Halsey reassures this person she’d be there to support them. It’s likely this song is about rapper G-Eazy who Halsey previously dated. It was reported that G-Eazy cheated on Halsey, which could serve as inspiration for this song.
The song marks the first collaboration between the two popstars. Rumors of the song surfaced online on April 24, 2020, with the artists confirming the song less than a week later.
I don’t know why you hide from the one
And close your eyes to the one
Mess up and lie to the one that you love
When you know you can cry to the one
Always confide in the one
You can be kind to the one that you love
