Halsey Exemplifies Lost Passion in "Ghost" Music Video
Known for her provocative lyrics, Halsey has recently provided her fans with a similarly passionate video to accompany her popular hit, “Ghost”. Set against the backdrop of Tokyo’s city lights, Halsey breaks the tradition set by the videos that accompanied her first EP, Room 93. Instead of cavorting with her usual love interest that appeared in her previous videos, she spins an open ended love story with another girl in a matching neon bob. This similarity between the characters begs the question of whether Halsey’s female counterpart is her lover, given the many steamy scenes between the two, or perhaps another part of herself that she is trying to rediscover. No matter what the viewer concludes in the end, they ultimately feel the loss of someone special. Halsey’s yearning vocals thoroughly match the sadness she seems to feel within the video as she questions where the ghost of her past went, however the upbeat tempo of the track keeps the viewer from delving too deeply into a feeling of desolation.
First released on Room 93, “Ghost” has another music video that was released in 2014 as part of that EP. Following its success, this single will also be a part of her debut album, Badlands, which will be released via Astralwerks on August 2 but has already his #2 on the charts with pre-orders.
