Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum, genre-bending artist Halsey and SUGA of 21st century pop icons BTS have unleashed the official music video for "Lilith (Diablo IV Anthem)" in collaboration with Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo IV.
"I'm thrilled that I got to collab with SUGA of BTS on a reimagined version of 'Lilith' for the Diablo IV anthem! Having spent countless hours in Sanctuary with my family, I'm here as both a fan and a collaborator," said Halsey in a press statement.

"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," Halsey added.
Directed by Henry Hobson, the video was shot in multiple locations, including inside Chapelle des Jésuites (Jesuits' Chapel) in Cambrai, France, where Blizzard had filled the ceiling with paintings and a 160-foot mural inspired by the game.
SUGA, a longtime collaborator and friend of Halsey, makes his way through the haze and effortlessly spits bars at the halfway mark.
"Working with Halsey on a track for the Diablo universe has been an incredible joy. I hope the track resonates with many people worldwide," SUGA said.
"This anthem for Diablo IV is a beautiful culmination of Halsey and SUGA's passion for the world of Diablo and what it represents," said Rod Fergusson, general manager of Diablo at Blizzard Entertainment.
"Their re-interpretation of Halsey's 'Lilith' from all angles – as a sound, as a piece of art, as a narrative – takes you right into the desperate world of Sanctuary and the resolute spirit it takes to fight your demons, whatever form they may take," he said.
