Earlier this month, Halsey’s debut album Badlands reached the top top in both the UK and the US – a pretty neat feat when you consider her status as a relative newcomer to the realm of popular music. And, by reaching #2 on the Billboard 200 last month, it gave Halsey the second highest charting debut for a female artist of the year.
That said, commercial success hasn’t been an overnight thing for the singer, who today premiered the music video for the record’s second single New Americana. This particular track first did the rounds last April but, as they say, all good things come to those who wait and New Americana – has since entered the Billboard Hot 100.
It’s the kind of brooding, singalong pop song that you can imagine an angsty, teenage music fan of the 21st century relating to, and it’ll probably soundtrack a fair few decadent parties too.
The music video is really good. It was shared earlier today and has already received 200k views. Catch that one below.
