Halsey recently released a performance video for the song “You Asked For This” just a few days after her last live video for “Honey.”
The video, in which the singer is shown performing with impeccable energy, in dazzling red light, with the camera capturing her from different angles, is directed by Dani Vitale.
Last month, the Grammy-Award winning singer-songwriter took to Twitter to explain the meaning of her song, saying, “You asked for this is a conversation between the me who is becoming a mom saying ‘grow up’ and the part that so desperately wants to remain a child. Wondering if we can co-exist, despite the massive change.”
The song features on Halsey’s fourth studio album, If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, created in collaboration with Nine Inch Nails‘ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
A film sharing the same title was released along with the album, exploring feminist themes, such as the female mind and body, the ups and downs of pregnancy and childbirth and institutionalized misogyny.
“It was always supposed to be about mortality, everlasting love and our place/permanence,” Halsey wrote in a Twitter post. “It was just amplified by me being pregnant and it introduced new themes of control, body horror, autonomy and conceit.”
