ILIRA’s Independent Anthem

Pop Princess ILIRA is No Damsel in Distress

Feminine and feisty, singer ILIRA is the heroic heroine of her own life story. In her new anthem, “Do !t Yourself,” the singer ditches storybook clichés and encourages fellow females to declare their independence.

A concoction of bouncy beats and upbeat fizzy pop, “Do !t Yourself” is a proclamation that women are capable of being much more than damsels in distress. The pop princess claims “girls ain’t gotta be the sweet and helpless type,” and create their own happy endings.

Raised in a small Swiss town by Kosovo-Albanian parents, ILIRA developed her signature rebellious attitude at a very young age while struggling to find her place in an environment with clashing cultures. It was during this time the singer learned how to fight her own battles, often finding resilience in music.

Described by Clash Music as “an artist destined for a long and promising run,” “Do !t Yourself” follows ILIRA’s feature on catchy club hit “Fading” by Alle Farben and in-your-face bop, “Get off My D!ck.”

HALSEY UNVEILS MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE “BAD AT LOVE

hopeless fountain kingdom TOUR BEGINS SEPTEMBER 29 WITH OPENERS PARTYNEXTDOOR AND CHARLI XCX

‘Bad at Love’ is a Kiss-worthy tour of beds she’s wrecked around the world.” — Rolling Stone
 

Today, Halsey shares the music video for her latest single “Bad At Love.” The song is available on her second full-length album, hopeless fountain kingdom [Astralwerks]-which dominated the Billboard Top 200 at #1 upon arrival and remains a mainstay on the chart.

Watch the video HERE.

After their blockbuster video collaboration on the RIAA platinum-certified lead single “Now Or Never”– which reigned in the Top 5 at Top 40 radio for six weeks – Halsey teamed up once again with filmmaker Sing J. Lee to direct the visual. A fan favorite, “Bad At Love” has already racked up nearly 30 million streams combined since release.

Cruising through the desert under a beating hot sun, the video continues the story of two star-crossed lovers, despite forces trying to keep them apart. Capturing dystopian chic like only she can, our heroine recounts one failed, albeit hot, love after another as her journey twists and turns through a wild wasteland.

Next up, GRAMMY® Award-nominated Halsey brings her biggest, brightest, and boldest stage show yet to arenas everywhere on this fall’s hopeless fountain kingdom Tour, kicking off September 29. See the full itinerary below.
