Halsey and Marshmello gave us one of the catchiest songs of the summer with “Be Kind”, and they recently dropped a vibrant, anime-inspired video that perfectly matches its tone.
The Hannah Lux Davis-directed video shows Halsey dancing to the beat of “Be Kind” in an empty warehouse, before drifting off to a cherry blossom-filled wonderland. She dances her heart out in the colorful fantasy world while rocking long pink hair and an anime-inspired outfit.
To make the whole thing even more impressive, the entire video was filmed during the lockdown. Halsey did her own makeup, and learned the choreography over FaceTime, with the help of Dani Vitale and Scott Myrick.
“Be Kind” isn’t featured on her latest album Manic, and it’s unclear if Marshmello wants to include it on his next album. The song was originally released on May 1st and reached top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100, but it’s safe to expect it will climb much higher thanks to this video.
