When it comes to powerhouse players in the music industry, Halsey 100 percent tops the list … literally. You can’t turn on the radio in 2019 without hearing one of the singer’s hit singles. Our favorite is still “Nightmare,” by the way.
That said, the New Jersey native, whose real name is Ashley Frangipane, didn’t garner this much success overnight. In fact, for most people, Halsey only recently became part of their playlists.
Of course, there are many diehard fans who have been following her since she released her debut EP, Room 93, in 2014. *Raises hand.* However, it was Halsey’s first studio album, Badlands, that truly put her on the map.
With classics like “New Americana,” “Colors” and “Young God,” she introduced listeners to the creative, badass and fiercely talented female artist we now know and love.
For those of you who haven’t been there from the beginning, though, you may not realize just how much Halsey has changed over the years. Scroll through the gallery below to see her complete transformation, as well as learn about some more of her career highlights!
