Taylor Swift and Halsey have formed a terrific working relationship over the years. The two have a lot in common as two completely different music icons who have both endured their fair share of criticism in this profession. And it’s good to know that, even though they’re competing for fans and streams, they’re also supporting for one another.
Taylor, for example, used Twitter today to inform her large fan following that she’s been immersed in the new Halsey period, as seen by their Trent Reznor-produced album If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power. Taylor wrote, “I’m blown away by @halsey’s artistry and commitment to take risks.” “Giving us everyone a chance to dive into and explore a brand new era together. If I can’t have love, I want power is now available for streaming and purchase!!”
Now that Halsey’s album is out, she’s spoken about how Reznor’s mentorship drove them to make “really strange choices” and go against the grain. So much pop music these days sounds the same, and Halsey and Taylor have recently experimented with noise and electronic sounds, harsher sounds, and pastoral folk-pop. Listen to Halsey’s latest album, which Taylor recommends; they’re at the top of their game on this one.
