Born and raised in New Jersey, Halsey had gained herself an audience on social media even prior to her major label debut in 2015. That August, she released her first studio album titled, Badlands. Primarily written by the singer herself, the album is comprised of several songs including Ghost, New Americana, and Colors, all of which have since received RIAA certification in the United States. Responsible for her breakout into the music scene, the album eventually peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200. As of September 2016, it has gone platinum in the US with over one million domestic sales.
Even prior to that, however, she had dropped an EP titled, Room 93 in the fall of 2014. Preceded by the single Ghost, it contained four additional tracks including, Is There Somewhere, Empty Gold, Trouble (Stripped), and Hurricane. A showcase of her sultry talents, the extended play garnered positive reviews from critics many of whom compared Halsey’s sounds to the likes of contemporary artists Lorde, and Lana Del Rey. Her first record to reach the music charts, it eventually peaked at number 159 on the Billboard 200. Since then, she has released two subsequent installments, Room 93: The Remixes and Room 93: 1 Mic 1 Take. Her latest EP, Complementary Colours was issued in April 2016.
Her second studio album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom was released on June 2, 2017. Rooted in synth-pop and pop, Halsey enlisted the help of Cashmere Cat, Benny Blanco, Greg Kurstin, Ricky Reed, and Happy Perez for its production. Supported by two singles, one of which went gold, it gave rise to numerous tracks including Strangers (Feat. Lauren Jauregui), Now or Never, Eyes Closed, 100 Meters, Walls Could Talk, Hopeless (Feat. Cashmere Cat), and Walls Could Talk. A solid release, it not only did it reached the top of the US Billboard 200, but it also charted as far as Australia and New Zealand. In support of the album, she also headlined a Hopeless Fountain Kingdom World Tour which ran for 29 dates across North America.
With the release of her recent collaboration, Closer with The Chainsmokers, which yielded her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Duo, her popularity has only gone up further. As of 2017, the song has already been played over 250 million times! Speaking of this year, she also came out with the single, Strangers (Feat. Lauren Jauregui) which went on to chart at number 100 on the Billboard Top 100. In addition to that, she also teamed up with PartyNextDoor on the song, Damage, taken from their fourth EP, Seven Days.
As mentioned earlier, she is currently on the road for her 2017 concert tour.
