"I always make the same mistakes," sings Halsey on her hopeless fountain kingdom single, "Bad At Love." The track is a relatable bisexual anthem for failed romance, as the pop singer switches between pronouns, singing about a man on the first verse and a woman on the second.
"Got a girl with California eyes," Halsey coos wistfully. "And I thought that she could really be the one this time/ But I never got the chance to make her mine/ Because she fell in love with little thin white lines/ London girl with an attitude/ We never told no one, but we look so cute."
Co-written by queer hitmaker Justin Tranter, the single received a video treatment this week, featuring Halsey as a runaway criminal escaping her demons with a pack of femme rebels. "I'm bad at love," she repeats, almost as a declaration of strength, as she races through the desert in a bright orange convertible.
This isn't the first time Halsey's addressed queer love through music--her synth-driven hopeless fountain kingdom duet, "Strangers," features Fifth Harmony's Lauren Jauregui, who's also openly bisexual. "We're not lovers, we're just strangers," the two sing together, championing same-sex pronouns in mainstream music.
