Halsey says their label won’t let them release a song unless it goes viral on TikTok:
“I’ve been in this industry for eight years and I’ve sold over 165 million records and my record company is saying I can’t release [the song] unless they can fake a viral moment on TikTok.”
After revealing in a TikTok video that their label won’t let them release a song unless it goes viral, Halsey talked to the label again:
“They said “wow the tiktok is going really strong!” I was like ok cool so can I release my song now? They said “we’ll see!”
Halsey is signed to Capitol Records and hasn’t released any music since New Years Eve.
