  • It reveals the singer's personal health battles
  • Fans are taken aback by what they are learning

In a world where celebrities often guard their personal struggles, Halsey (29), the chart-topping singer/songwriter, breaks the mold with the release of her gut-wrenchingly honest new single, "The End." This track isn't just a song; it's a confession, a cry for help, and a beacon of hope all rolled into one.

Battling Against Time!

On Tuesday, June 4, Halsey took to social media to share not just another song, but a piece of her soul. "The End" is the opening salvo from her eagerly anticipated fifth studio album, and it's a gritty folk anthem that showcases Halsey's raw vocal power and emotional depth. But the song is more than its melody; it's a window into Halsey's harrowing journey through severe health issues.

She captioned an Instagram carousel "long story short, i’m Lucky to be alive. short story long, i wrote an album. it begins with The End. out now. @lupusresearchalliance @llsusa."

In the first video, the "Colors" singer can be seen massaging their legs saying, "I feel like an old lady. I told myself I'm giving myself two more years to be sick. By 30 I'm having a rebirth, and I'm not gonna be sick, and I'm gonna look super hot and have lots of energy and I'm just gonna re-do my 20s in my 30s. Seriously."

Halsey shared a photo of themselves with a mask on during "day one" of treatment, a text conversation with someone featuring their new single, a clip of them in the dark playing acoustic guitar and recording "The End," and a highlight reel of their emotional highs and lows during treatment and the making of her new song.

Written by Halsey and produced by the singer-songwriter, Michael Uzowuru and Alex G, "The End" is a haunting track is a gritty folk number carried by their raw vocals and acoustic guitar.

Tough lyrics

In the song, the star references the confusion of their ailments singing, "Every couple of years now, a doctor says I'm sick / Pulls out a brand new bag of tricks / And then they lay it on me / And at first, it was my brain, then a skeleton in pain / And I don't like to complain, but I'm saying sorry."

Halsey also explains "there's poison in my brain and in my blood."

But Halsey's new single isn't just about sharing her story; it's about making a difference. The pop star has pledged to donate proceeds from "The End" to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the Lupus Research Alliance. It's a move that not only highlights her generosity but also her commitment to raising awareness and support for those facing similar battles.

Despite the challenges, Halsey's spirit remains unbroken. After parting ways with Capitol Records, "The End" marks the beginning of a new chapter with Columbia Records. It's a testament to Halsey's resilience and her unwavering dedication to her art and her fans.

In April 2023, she cut ties with her longtime record label, saying: "After 8 great years the decision to leave Capitol is bittersweet, but we are excited about exploring a new partnership and sharing new music with fans."
