The pop star released her second album, ‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom‘, earlier this year. In a four-star review, NME said: “‘Hopeless Fountain Kingdom’ gets by on a universal quality, but there’s a personal touch you don’t find on everyday pop full-lengths.”
The track is the second from the record to get an official music video, and it follows the cinematic, Romeo & Juliet-inspired clip for ‘Now Or Never‘.
In the video, Halsey stops at a gas station on the open road, where she meets a tarot reader wearing a bird mask, three new friends and some futuristic looking policeman, who the new gang handcuff to their car.

In a joint interview with Charli XCX, the star talked to Billboard about the subject of how female musicians are talked about in terms of songwriting. “There’s a skepticism behind female artists in general,” Halsey said. “From when I first started, I wrote [my music].”
Charli added: “And people were like, ‘Oh, who wrote your songs?’ There’s so much doubt, especially with being a pop star and being a female. Taylor Swift, amazing songwriter. Katy Perry, amazing songwriter. Lady Gaga, amazing songwriter.”
Halsey then replied: “People want to discount them.”
