While both One Direction and Justin Bieber released their
highly-anticipated albums Friday, it may be easy to miss Hailee Steinfeld’s
Hailee first captured the world’s attention with her
Oscar-nominated performance in “True Grit,” but her pop breakout shouldn’t
come to a surprise for fans of “Pitch Perfect 2,” where her incredible
voice helped lead the Bellas to aca-victory.
Hailee’s debut EP, “HAIZ,” features four
undeniably catchy girl-power anthems guaranteed to be stuck in your head.
Her first single – “Love Myself” – is an uplifting
pop banger that pushed Hailee from big screen sweetheart to pop princess.
The track made history debuting on Top 40 radio as the “highest
solo female artist debut at the format since 1998.” The video for “Love
Myself” is a viral hit, and has already amassed 30 Million views and counting.
“You’re Such A” is a cheeky kiss-off song to an ex
that would make her BFF Taylor Swift proud, while “Rock Bottom” is a
stylistic, upbeat jam full of swagger and soul.
The second single off “HAIZ” – “Hell Nos and
Headphones” – is a perfectly polished ode to the outsiders who don’t quite
fit in with the party scene. (No wonder Haiz and Tay are besties!)
While “HAIZ” only features four tracks, it’s
enough to make Hailee a big player in the pop music scene.
“HAIZ” is available now.
