Not Afraid Anymore | Halsey

As it gets closer to the release of the second installment from the Fifty Shades series, Fifty Shades Darker, we've gotten a couple releases from the soundtrack and this song is probably my favorite so far.  After feeling underwhelmed by the Zayn and Taylor release, I was doubtful about this song, especially coming from an artist that I was unfamiliar with.  However, I immediately became drawn to this song as it continued to play and it definitely embodies the vibe of the Fifty Shades series.  I can almost  picture where the song could be playing in the movie.  I mean, the title of the song says so much.  The new-ish singer-songwriter released an album in 2015 and in my research, I learned that she provided vocals to the smash hit "Closer" by the Chainsmokers.  She's also nominated for a Grammy for her feature on Justin Bieber's album, Purpose.  So she's clearly known in the industry and now that I've heard this track, I'll be on the lookout for more.
