American singer songwriter Halsey’s ‘Nightmare‘ was one of the stellar songs featured on the Tiny Pretty Things soundtrack this week — Tiny Pretty Things, Season 1, Episode 3, “Class Act”.
The song was played over the final scenes.
Halsey’s ‘Nightmare‘ is a single that was co-written by the singer in collaboration with Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat and Happy Perez. The song was released via Capitol Records in 2019.
The track charted in more than 25 countries and was particularly successful in the United States, where it charted on five different charts, and in Belgium, Hungary, Mexico, Australia, Canada and Slovakia.
The song was eventually certified Platinum in the U.S., Australia and Canada. (continue reading and listen to Halsey’s ‘Nightmare‘ after the promo…)
‘Nightmare‘ is said to have been written about Halsey‘s refusal to kowtow to men, and as a message to women everywhere to protect their sexual freedom and to love themselves unconditionally.
With lyrics in the chorus like:
Come on little lady give us a smile
No, I ain’t got nothin’ to smile about
I got no one to smile for, I waited a while for
A moment to say I don’t owe you a goddamn thing
it’s easy to see she is serious about that.
Halsey’s ‘Nightmare‘ also has an incredibly powerful official music video in which, after she has made it obvious most men and their demands can pretty much shove themselves where the sun doesn’t shine, you might just find yourself being riled up to feel the same way.
