Hurricane is the debut single by American recording artist Halsey. The song is featured on the extended play Room 93 and the album Badlands, although it was only released as a single from the former body of work.

Background

In Halsey's commentary for the Room 93 EP, she said, "It's about a girl that kinda like falls for this guy who supposedly gonna make things hard on her and is gonna take advantage of her, but she kinda ends up turning it around in the end and she says: 'I'm a wanderess/I'm a one night stand/Don't belong to no city/Don't belong to no man.' So it's kinda like her response to him, saying like you know, 'You can think you got me all you want, but I don't belong to anyone but me.' And you know, I talk about Brooklyn, Brooklyn's my place. That's where Halsey comes from. It's definitely a very special song to me and I love it. Yeah."

Music Video

A music video for the song was released on October 16, 2014. It starts with three adolescent males riding bikes past three adolescent females. Two are staring at each other. While the other four are skateboarding in an old pool, the two protagonists are conversing in a car. They then break into a hotel room, where the six commence drinking, smoking, and making out with each other. When they wake up the next morning, it is revealed that the video took place during the summer of 1997, and that the video is the first in a sequence.

Halsey - Hurricane

Lyrics

There's a place way down in Bed-Stuy,
Where a boy lives behind bricks,
He's got an eye for girls of eighteen,
And he turns them out like tricks

I went down to a place in Bed-Stuy,
A little liquor on my lips
I let him climb inside my body
And held him captive in my kiss

And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting

I'm a wanderess
I'm a one night stand
Don't belong to no city
Don't belong to no man
I'm the violence in the pouring rain
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane

I went down to a place in Brooklyn
Where you tripped on LSD
And I found myself reminded
To keep you far away from me

And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting now
And there's a storm you're starting

I'm a wanderess
I'm a one night stand
Don't belong to no city
Don't belong to no man
I'm the violence in the pouring rain
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane
Ha ah ah ha ah ah ah
I'm a hurricane

He says, "Oh, baby, beggin' you to save me.
Well, lately I like 'em crazy.
Oh, and baby, you could devastate me.
Little lady, come and fade me."

I'm a wanderess
I'm a one night stand
Don't belong to no city
Don't belong to no man
I'm the violence in the pouring rain

Come and fade me
Come and fade me
I'm a hurricane
