In an April statement issued to Variety, the musician (born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane,) said at the time: “After eight great years the decision to leave Capitol is bittersweet, but we are excited about exploring a new partnership and sharing new music with fans.”
While no specific reason for her departure from Capitol’s Astralwerks imprint was made clear at the time, the now 29-year-old pop star previously got into a dispute with the record company about the song ‘So Good’, with the label allegedly wanting the track to go viral on TikTok before its formal release.
Taking to TikTok herself, the superstar singer claimed her record company wouldn’t release the tune, “unless they can fake a viral moment on TikTok” along with the caption “Basically I have a song that I love that I wanna release ASAP. But my record label won’t let me.”
In an ironic twist, Halsey later shared a clip of the track on the video-sharing app writing “After a tremendous amount of f*** s***, ‘So Good’ is finally coming out June 9th. Video dropping the next day. And now I can go back to using TikTok for my real plan: Using witchcraft to take over the world.Thanks for keeping up with this fiasco. Hope you love the song.”
It’s now the dawn of a new day as the platinum-selling, singer/songwriter has signed with Columbia Records, the home of fellow mega-star musicians, Adele, Beyoncé, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Chainsmokers, Calvin Harris, Depeche Mode, Harry Styles, and Rosalîa,
