17 May 2019 (Toronto, ON) - GRAMMY® Award-nominated, multi-Platinum artist Halsey examines the expectations placed on women in our society – and then shatters them – with her powerful new single, “Nightmare,” released today by Capitol Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company.
The accompanying video, which was unveiled today in a YouTube Premiere, was based on a concept by Halsey and features an all-female cast. It was directed by 2-time MTV VMA winner Hannah Lux Davis (Ariana Grande, Ciara), who also helmed Halsey’s video for “Alone.” Download / stream “Nightmare” HERE. View the video HERE.
Last week, she played an intimate, sold-out two-night stand at New York City’s Webster Hall. Halsey performed her debut album, Badlands (2015), in its entirety on the first night and her second album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017), on the second evening. Both albums are certified Platinum.
Halsey has set records with her 2018 single, “Without Me.” In March 2019, she became the first artist in history to replace herself at No. 1 twice on the U.S. Pop Songs Airplay chart when “Without Me” bumped “Eastside,” her collaboration with Benny Blanco and Khalid, from the top spot. “Without Me” is the longest-running Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit by a female artist in this century, and one of only 9 songs ever to spend 28+ weeks in the top 10, topping the tally in January 2019. Cumulative global streams of “Without Me” have surpassed one billion and the track is certified 4x Platinum in the U.S. The official video, which can be seen HERE, has more than 100 million views.

Since 2015, Halsey has amassed nearly 12 billion cumulative streams worldwide, sold more than eight million adjusted albums globally and had nine RIAA-certified Platinum singles (three of which were multi-Platinum). Halsey has played sold out dates on five continents (including New York City’s Madison Square Garden), been nominated for a GRAMMY® and appeared on a wide variety of magazine covers, including NYLON, Billboard, Glamour and Forbes.
She has pushed creative boundaries, expanding her influence and impact beyond music. After making her film debut in the animated 2018 summer movie Teen Titans GO! as the voice of Wonder Woman, she was seen in A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. Halsey continues to use her voice to speak up for causes she passionately believes in, including disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community. GLAAD honored her in 2018 as “Outstanding Music Artist.”
