Born in New Jersey, Halsey went from last year's MTV Artist to Watch to selling out Madison Square Garden to a Gold-certified debut album, "Badlands" (Astralwerks) in less than seven months. Halsey's very first tour sold-out in minutes, as did her second sold-out headlining tour last year. She also joined both Imagine Dragons and The Weeknd as the opener for each of their arena tours.
BADLANDS was released on August 28, 2015, reaching #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and spawning the hit single "New Americana," which reached the Top 20 on Billboard's U.S. Alternative Songs chart. Her new single is the emotive 'Colors', with MTV Teen Wolf's Tyler Posey starring in the clip with Halsey. Upon its premiere, the video went viral, trending globally on twitter for several hours as fans eagerly watched and shared the video's twist ending. Halsey's upcoming headlining BADLANDS tour has gone global in 2016, with tour dates sold out across 5 continents.
