Slowly but surely the highly anticipated movie Fifty Shades Darker is releasing its musical repertoire among which Halsey holds a name.
Debuting her new track Not Afraid Anymore, the lyrics are a clear sensual foresight of what can be expected of the blockbuster (“I am not ashamed anymore/I want something so impure/You better impress now, watching my dress now fall to the floor”).
Laced with mysterious synths undertones entangled in a haze of electro-pop, the American singer-songwriter follows up the same theme as Taylor Swift and Zayn’s I Don’t Wanna Live Forever.
She claims: “Fifty Shades Darker is kind of about Anna, the female character, coming into her own on her sexuality and owning it and choosing her freedom and choosing her quality over a life of submission. You know that’s very much the M.O. of my project, strong, sexual female mentality so it was almost too easy – I was like how do I do this?”
Listen to the sensual track below.
