A couple weeks ago Lauren Jauregui recently dropped one hell of a bombshell song on her fans when she released her single, “Strangers” in collaboration with Halsey. The song caused major buzz online when people picked up that this breakup anthem was about a woman who lost a special woman in her life. The single is being praised as an LGBTQ anthem. Jauregui recently talked to ELLE magazine about why she is so proud of her single.
Lauren Jauregui is so proud to finally have produced a song to the queer woman community, which is often ignored.

“It’s a whole space that no one’s ever really touched upon before, and I feel like representation in music is so important,” Jauregui told ELLE Magazine. “And reality-wise, we’ve both been in the situation before with different people, so it’s cool to have that representation.”
She told ELLE that the song shows her unapologetically being herself.

“I think what’s cool about both Ashley and I: We’re unapologetic about who we are,” Jauregui told ELLE Magazine.
And she is happy to be making art without being concerned about making money.

“We’re making art, and we’re making stuff we believe in,” Jauregui told ELLE Magazine. “If people buy it, that’s great, but we don’t do it for the commodity purpose of it.”
She is very excited to see how people react to her music.

“Two powerful women making art together is always really cool,” Jauregui told ELLE Magazine. “I’m excited to see how people ingest it and receive it.”
But, most of all, she is proud to be part of two women making art that reflects who they are.

“People are excited about how revolutionary it is, and they’re so excited to be given a piece of music they feel represented in,” Jauregui told ELLE Magazine.
