Halsey (aka Ashley Nicolette Frangipane) has seen her career take off at the speed of light. Originally signed to Astralwerks after her single, “Ghost,” went viral, Halsey now sells out crowds of thousands – she sold out Madison Square Garden after the release of her first album, Badlands – and there’s no settling down.

Following the major success of her 2018 single, “Without Me,” she released her next single, “11 Minutes,” with Yungblud and Travis Barker. Although her vocals are usually laid over synth arrangements, it’s clear that Halsey’s voice and lyrics can span genres.

In fact, her most recent single, “Nightmare,” takes a sharp turn from her previous material. An angry rock anthem, the song rages at the sexist culture women currently live in. She snaps in her lyrics: “No, I won’t smile / But I’ll show you my teeth.” 

Her next single, “Graveyard,” comes out on Friday the 13th, and we are thrilled to hear what she throws at us next. There’s been no release date for the next album, but fans are anticipating her best album yet.
