From the Album
In May 2019, Halsey posted a link on her social media, directing users to the website nightma.re to sign up for email alerts and prompting them to share what their worst nightmare is. The site gave a series of options, and upon clicking one of the options, users would be shown an explanation as to the meaning of that specific nightmare.
• Jason Lipshutz of Billboard said " “I’m tired and angry, but somebody should be,” Halsey spits, letting others know that the general frustration they might be feeling remains completely justifiable and well-earned. Halsey wanted to write a song about what it’s like to be a woman in the year 2019, and “Nightmare” makes its rage plain and its conclusion -- that this, the current state, is not good enough -- clear."
• "Nightmare" reached the US Billboard Hot 100 No. 15; US Adult Top 40 (Billboard) No. 37; and US Mainstream Top 40 (Billboard) No. 22 as of May 29, 2019.
