How Did Halsey Get So Rich?
Signing with Astralwerks after the success of “Ghost” is one of the main reasons why Halsey became rich and successful. The artist felt that the label gave her more creative freedom than the rest of the recording labels who offered her deals at the time. Immediately after she signed with the label, the singer chose to use the name “Halsey” as her professional name (as it’s also an anagram of her first name). Later in 2014, she released her first music project, the extended play “Room 93”. The EP was very successful and marked the beginning of Halsey’s blooming career.
After touring around the United States to promote her EP, Halsey released her very first music album “Badlands” in October 2015. The album was met with generally positive reviews and quickly topped many music charts, including the Billboard 200 where it landed at number 2. At the same time, the megastar Justin Bieber asked Halsey to collaborate on a song. Their song “The Feeling” was part of Bieber’s album and helped the artist gain a lot more exposure.
Why Is She So Famous?
Halsey is famous because of her distinguishing singing abilities. The young singer was born in Edison, New Jersey and she had an interest in music since she was 14 years old. At that time she played different instruments – cello, viola, and violin, however, she later became more interested in acoustic guitar. After graduating from the Warren Hills Regional High School in 2012, Halsey began chasing her music career. During that time she was still using her real name, Ashley Frangipane.
Even though she was writing music since she was 17, Halsey didn’t release music because she didn’t felt comfortable at the time. Shortly after, she decided to post her own covers of different songs on social media websites such as Kik, YouTube, and Tumblr. Her most popular cover was that of Taylor Swift’s “I Knew You Were Trouble”. In early 2014, after she met a random man at a party, the two decided to record a song and this is how Halsey’s first song “Ghost” was created. The song was posted on Soundcloud and within a few hours, it gained online popularity.
What Makes Her So Successful?
Halsey’s success came after she released her second album. In June 2017, she released by far her most successful album. “Hopeless Fountain Kingdom” immediately debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 among many other music charts. Just like “Badlands”, to promote her album, Halsey embarked on her own tour in which she traveled in North America, Europe, Australia, and Asia.
Continuing the momentum after HFK, Halsey released her breakthrough hit “Without Me” in October 2018. The song became Halsey’s first to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100. Her popular hit single was included in the singer’s latest album “Manic”. The third album was released in January 2020 and was just as successful as the previous two.
Halsey is one of the fastest rising stars in the music industry. Besides her mesmerizing singing skills, she is also an acclaimed songwriter and activist. It didn’t take too long for her to take over the world with her unique personality and great singing abilities. But besides winning a long list of awards and achievements, Halsey is also seen in many magazines, and charts as one of the most influential and successful pop stars of the last decade.
