When Halsey first popped up on the scene with The Chainsmokers on their massive hit “Closer,” I incorrectly predicted she’d fade away into obscurity. Boy, did the 24-year-old singer, born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, prove me wrong. She’s consistently scored hit after hit with “Bad At Love,” “Eastside” and “Without Me.” No doubt her latest will follow suit and impact on radio and on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Nightmare” shows off an edgier side of Halsey. She’s a downright bad-ass. It’s an angsty empowering anthem featuring themes about slamming gender roles, independence and bodily autonomy.
The accompanying visual directed by Hannah Lux Davis also shows off a darker element than her previous singles. Give it a watch below.
