Halsey, born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, is an American singer, songwriter, and author. With a unique sound and a fiercely independent spirit, Halsey has become one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation. Her music has been described as a blend of pop, alternative, and indie rock, with lyrics that are both introspective and politically charged.
Halsey’s rise to fame began with the release of her debut single “Ghost” in 2014. The song, which was inspired by a failed relationship, quickly caught the attention of music industry insiders and led to a record deal with Astralwerks. Halsey’s debut album, Badlands, was released in 2015 and was met with critical acclaim. The album spawned several hit singles, including “New Americana” and “Colors,” and established Halsey as a rising star in the music world.
Halsey’s success continued with the release of her second album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, in 2017. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart and was preceded by the hit single “Now or Never.” The album showcased Halsey’s growth as an artist, incorporating elements of R&B and hip-hop into her sound.
Since then, Halsey has continued to push creative boundaries and expand her audience. She has amassed over 50 billion global streams and has sold over 75 million RIAA-certified adjusted singles and albums in the US alone. Halsey has also made history as one of the only artists to have four different songs reach 1 billion streams on Spotify.
In 2020, Halsey released her third album, Manic, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. The album was the first of 2020 to be certified Platinum in the US and received critical acclaim for its raw and honest lyrics. The album also spawned several hit singles, including “Without Me” and “Graveyard.”
Halsey’s latest album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, was released in 2021 and produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The album was Grammy-nominated for Best Alternative Music Album and was recently awarded Gold certification by the RIAA.
In addition to her success as a musician, Halsey has also become a cultural icon and role model. She has won over 20 awards, including an AMA, MTV VMA, GLAAD Award, and the Songwriters Hall of Fame’s Hal David Starlight Award. Halsey has also been named one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People of 2020.
In 2021, Halsey launched about-face, a multi-dimensional makeup line that is available nationwide in Ulta Beauty stores. The line is designed to be inclusive and accessible to all.

Halsey recently released the long-awaited extended recording of ‘Die 4 Me,’ originally a verse on the Post Malone deep cut ‘Die For Me’ shared in 2019.
Halsey’s success as a musician and cultural icon is a testament to her talent, hard work, and fearless spirit.
