Almost a month ago Halsey explained that her projects were being delayed due to problems with her record label. Just a few days ago, on June 10, her requests have finally come true and her song So Good has been released after all these weeks of uncertainty.
It was on May 22 when the singer decided to share an excerpt of the song on TikTok explaining to her followers the situation with her label as a complaint. What the singer criticized was the intention of the label for delaying the release of the song to wait for a moment in which it could go viral, something Halsey disagreed with. Paradoxically, this public denunciation has caused the song to go viral, since the singer’s statements made the fans put pressure on the label.
The video clip, as well as the song, was also released last June 10, and it must be said that both have had a great reception on all platforms. Although it also highlights the fact that, after the publication of the song, the singer has been forced to clarify a small detail, and is that his followers thought that the song was about an ex-couple who finally reconcile. Halsey clarified that the lyrics are for that friend who is always there to support us no matter what, they are that kind of people for whom one comes to feel a really deep love, but that is not related to couples. Although, sometimes, as the artist explains, those feelings can turn into something more.
The theme of the song stands out when, after listening to it, it is understood that, together with the music, a story is told from beginning to end. From the uncertainty of what is happening with the thoughts and feelings of someone who falls in love with his friend, to the unthinkable moment when it turns out to become a requited love and a song that starts with sad tones and ends with a happy ending.
Undoubtedly, Halsey has been becoming one of the most consecrated musical artists in the music industry worldwide, and although her songs are more than evident proof of her talent and the recognition she receives, it is actions like the ones behind this song that should make us reflect. Halsey is an artist who prioritizes her music over potential earnings, and has even gone so far as to publicly challenge her own label despite the risks that may come with that. Of course we will enjoy So Good, but we should also reflect on the music industry and the decision-making power of artists.
