Halsey‘s new single, “So Good,” has finally received a release date. Capitol Records announced Tuesday that “So Good” will come out June 9.
Last week, the singer-songwriter had claimed that the label was blocking the release of the new song in order to test its TikTok virality.
In a TikTok video, Halsey alleged that label was blocking the release of the single for marketing reasons.
“Basically I have a song that I love that I wanna release ASAP,” the singer wrote over a video of themselves listening to the track. “But my record label won’t let me.”
The unreleased track can be heard playing in the background as Halsey continues, “I’ve been in this industry for eight years and I’ve sold over 165 million records and my record company is saying I can’t release [the song] unless they can fake a viral moment on TikTok.”
“Everything is marketing,” concluded Halsey’s TikTok, “and they are doing this to every artist these days. I just want to release music, man and I deserve better tbh. I’m tired.”
However, Capitol Records tweeted, “@Halsey, we love you and are here to support you. We are an artist first company that encourages open dialogue. We have nothing but a desire to help each one of our artists succeed, and hope that we can continue to have these critical conversations.”
“I didn’t expect so much conversation about this record,” the “Without Me” singer tweeted. “All I know is that I wanted you guys to hear it and now you can. So Good, song on June 9th and video the next day.”
