Halsey Biography (Wikipedia)

Ashley Nicolette Frangipane (born September 29, 1994), known professionally as Halsey, is an American singer and songwriter. Her stage name is a reference to the Halsey Street station of the New York City Subway in Brooklyn, and an anagram of her first name.

After gaining attention from self-released music on social media platforms, Halsey was signed by Astralwerks in 2014. She then released her debut EP, Room 93, later that year. To promote the EP and her upcoming album, Halsey toured with larger acts. Her debut studio album, Badlands, was released in 2015. The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Badlands released three new singles, all of which were certified Platinum and achieved minor commercial success; it also produced a rereleased single, which was certified Gold. To promote the album, Halsey embarked on her debut headlining world tour.

In 2016, Halsey was featured as a vocalist on The Chainsmokers' single "Closer", which achieved major commercial success, topping the charts of over 20 countries and gaining Halsey greater prominence. Her second studio album, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, was released in 2017 and debuted at number one in the US and Canada. The album consisted of more "radio friendly" music than her previous releases; four of its singles charted on the Billboard Hot 100, with "Now or Never" peaking at number 17 and "Bad at Love" peaking at number five. In 2018, Halsey sang with Khalid for Benny Blanco's debut single "Eastside", which topped the charts of five countries and peaked at number nine on the Billboard Hot 100. Later that year, she released a single titled "Without Me", which peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100, and also charted in the top five of sixteen other countries.
