This week, Halsey teamed up with Magnum Ice Cream for the True To Pleasure show. In celebration of the performance, the company pledged $50,000 to GLSN, an organization that provides LGTBQ students with an educational environment free of judgment and harassment.
Now, after much demand, Halsey’s entire performance has been posted on YouTube.
Halsey recently partnered with Magnum Ice Cream for its latest campaign. The True To Pleasure advertisement includes individuals from all walks of life and encourages everyone to be their most authentic selves. The singer is featured in the company’s new ad which can be seen at the start of the video.

The acoustic performance includes seven songs that have been released recently in Halsey’s career.
Halsey also included some songs off of her latest album Manic which was released earlier this year. “Without Me,” “Finally // Beautiful Stranger,” “Graveyard” and “Alanis’ Interlude” [Morissette] are all included in the setlist. She also performs her recent collab with Marshmello “Be Kind.”
Halsey had specific reasons for why she decided to include each song in the setlist.
“When I put this setlist together, I picked some of the songs that, to me, best communicate the feelings of love, loss, longing, and learning,” she says. “And doing all of it in a way that is un-adulterated and unapologetically yourself. That’s a common theme in a lot of my songs.”
Due to the postponement of her Manic World Tour, Halsey has been finding other ways to keep busy over the past few months. She recently announced that she is releasing her first poetry book. As well, she launched the Black Creators Funding Initiative which supports creators in the arts.
Earlier this month, her collab “Life’s A Mess” with late rapper Juice WRLD was released. The song is off of his posthumous album that came out last week. As well, there’s some speculation that Halsey may be releasing a collab with Machine Gun Kelly and blink-182‘s Travis Barker soon.
