Halsey and Suga‘s “Lilith (Diablo IV Anthem)”
The dark and moody video — directed by Henry Hobson and released in collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment’s Diablo IV and released on Monday (June 5) — was filmed inside Chapelle des Jésuites (Jesuits’ Chapel) in Cambrai, France, where the ceiling was covered with game-inspired paintings and an impressive 160-foot mural.
“I’m thrilled that I got to collab with SUGA of BTS on a reimagined version of ‘Lilith’ for the Diablo IV anthem!” Halsey said in a statement. “Having spent countless hours in Sanctuary with my family, I’m here as both a fan and a collaborator. Plus, I’ve always wanted to do a concept with SUGA with this type of dark mythology. Hopefully, fans of Diablo, SUGA, and myself will love Lilith’s embrace.”
The visual for the If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power track’s reimagining with BTS‘ Suga has Halsey shedding a black cloak and emerging as the Diablo IV game’s protagonist, the Blessed Mother Lilith.
Suga’s much-anticipated appearance comes soon after the halfway mark, when he arrives through a red haze and takes over vocals in his contribution to the song.
“I know you get too caught up in the moment/ You can’t call it love if you show it/ We just f–k things up, yeah I noticed,” he says before launching into a rap and then singing alongside Halsey.
“There’s so much to celebrate today – the work of our incredible team, our new Diablo IV anthem from Halsey, and players entering the full vision of Diablo IV for the first time,” Diablo GM Rod Fergusson said previously. “This is a culmination of years of hard work, and we’re so excited for players to jump in and become a part of Sanctuary alongside us.”
