Halsey’s ‘You Should Be Sad’ gets Japanese, French, Spanish, German and Portuguese lyric videos

American singer songwriter Halsey is certainly making sure a huge percentage of her fans understand the lyrics of her latest single release ‘You Should Be Sad‘.

After all, unlike most of her contemporaries who only release their song lyrics in English, Halsey’s ‘You Should Be Sad’ just got Japanese, French, Spanish, German and Portuguese lyric videos.

In other words, the 25-year-old singer is making sure almost 333 million people understand what she is singing about in the song in their own languages.

Halsey’s ‘You Should Be Sad‘ is from her third studio album Manic.

That album was released in January, 2020 and hit the charts in 25 countries including the U.S., the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada and Ireland.

Its highest showing was in the United States, where it made it to the top spot on the U.S. Top Tastemaker Albums chart. It also hit the #2 spot in Australia and Canada, and on the Billboard 200 chart.

You Should Be Sad‘ was released as the sixth single from the hit album. The song was written by Halsey (aka Ashley Nicolette Frangipane) and producer Greg Kurstin, and is a country pop ballad.

It hit the number 26 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, as well as charted in 25 countries.

The music video for the song has Halsey in a country western club watching people line dance.

The lyrics of the song released in Japanese, French, Spanish, German,  and Portuguese talk about breaking up with someone who was only in the relationship as long as there was something in it for him.

Someone who wasn’t half the man he thinks he is, and someone who she was glad she had never settled down enough with to even think about having a child with.

Halsey herself said she wrote the song as a country pop ballad as she believes the most heart-breaking songs are those in the country genre.

The song itself is a kick-ass release that should help persuade many other women not to put up with poor treatment from any guy.
