Halsey has leaked an unreleased version of Manic bonus track, “wipe your tears” to celebrate Pride Month.
The singer – who won the GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Music Artist in 2018 – shared the second take of the track, which features on the Japanese edition of the LP, and teased that there is a third version.
Halsey admitted she’ll probably “get in trouble” with her record label for posting the recording online. She tweeted: “prolly gon get in trouble for this but, happy pride ! here’s the full OG version of wipe your tears. my favorite wlw song of mine that ended up on a special release of Manic. if it gets taken down it ain’t my fault”
When one of her followers replied to her that the leaked version is “superior” to the final cut, Halsey responded: “There’s actually 3 versions of this song in existence hahaha. You guys have 2 of them now.”
When another fan demanded she leak the third one, she wrote back: “Omg pls I jussssst leaked the 2nd lemme breathe y’all ravenous. I can’t I’ll get in too much trouble cause it has a feature hahah” Halsey then added: “Y’all gonna get me in trouble now shush. If I ever leaked a demo version of a song, I don’t leak it bc I did. No I didn’t.”
