Halsey took to TikTok to reveal that her record label, Astralwerks/Capitol, is preventing her from dropping her new song due to a marketing tactic.

“Basically, I have a song that I love that I want to release ASAP, but my record label won’t let me,” she wrote in her video, with the unreleased track reportedly being played in the background. “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.” The artist concluded her video by saying, “Everything is marketing and they are doing this to every artist these days. I just want to release music, man and I deserve better tbh. I’m tired.”

After the clip went viral, Halsey tweeted: “Talked to my label tonight after my TikTok tantrum. 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!’ Tell me again how I’m making this up.”

Astralwerks/Capitol has not yet released a statement about the situation. Stay tuned while we wait for more details.
