Halsey is currently on her Love and Power Tour, but the singer-songwriter is ready to release new music. Over the past few weeks, Halsey has teased they have a new song prepared. However, in a string of new TikToks, the singer alleged that their record label is blocking the release of the song.
Halsey says their record label will not ‘let’ them release a new song
On May 22, Halsey posted a new TikTok with the caption “I’m tired.” In the TikTok, the singer-songwriter mouthed along to the lyrics of a new song while text was displayed. In the TikTok, Halsey alleged that her record label “won’t let” her release a new song the way she wants.
The Tiktok reads:
“Basically I have a song that I love that I want to release ASAP, but my record label won’t let me. I’ve been in this industry for 8 years and I’ve sold over 165 million records. And my record company is saying that I can’t release it unless they can fake a viral moment on TikTok. Everything is marketing. And they are doing this to basically every artist these days. I just want to release music, man. And I deserve better tbh.”
In a separate TikTok, Halsey shared a conversation with someone who appears to be on her team. The person shared the rollout plan for the song while Halsey listened.
“I just hate this,” Halsey shared.
