Halsey: Watch the making of If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power

Halsey has shared an amazingly insightful look into both the If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power album and film – featuring the most brilliantly wholesome reaction to being complimented by Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor.

Halsey: Watch the making of If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power
Emily Carter

Halsey has lifted the lid on all things If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power, with the first part of a new making-of series.

Looking at the creation of both the record and accompanying film, this new 12-minute video brilliantly details everything that went into the project, from working on it all while pregnant, to getting in Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for the production.

In a brilliantly wholesome moment on screen, the New Jersey star has a long-distance call with the Nine Inch Nails legends, listening to their thoughts and opinions. Then, Trent reveals that he's "blown away" by the songwriting for this album, with an overwhelmed Halsey shakily responding, "Wow!" After the call comes to an end, the look on Halsey's face says it all…
