Who is Halsey?
1. Her real name is Ashley Nicolette Frangipane
In a 2015 interview with Vevo, Halsey explains that her stage name “Halsey” is an anagram of her real name “Ashley.” Coincidentally, Halsey is also the name of the street she grew up in in Brooklyn, New York.
2. Music as her outlet
Halsey has always been open about her rough teenage years. She wrote poems for years, and this led her to write songs in order for people to notice and to listen to her poems. In an interview with Rolling Stones in 2016, she mentioned that her music is a “confessional approach as a form of therapy” since her songs are largely based on her life and what she has gone through.
3. Rise to fame
She collaborated with a producer she met at a party and together they were able to come up with Halsey’s breakout song Ghost. In a matter of hours, the song immediately started attracting the public’s attention and several record labels are knocking on the singer’s door. In the end, Halsey ended up signing with Astralwerks.
4. Albums under her belt
At present, Halsey has two studio albums. Her first studio album is entitled Badlands which was released in 2015. In it’s first week, it sold 97,000 copies and album debuted on the Number 2 spot of the Billboard 200 charts. Her latest album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom reached the number 1 spot on the US Billboard charts. Halsey’s electropop and synthpop style are both very evident in both albums.
