Rozie’s New Single ‘Lil Longer’
“It started out as just a simple beat that Waspy made off the cuff. When I originally heard it, I wasn’t sure if the two-step vibe would fit my project. But when Danny McKinnon came to jam on the record – I knew it was going to be something special. I love the simplicity of the beat and the fact that there are only a few lyrics. “Hold me closer for a little longer” was literally the first thing that came out of my mouth when I was jamming on the track and coming up with a melody. It just stuck! It was like my subconscious came up with the perfect lyric to fit with the song. Waspy took the hook, ran with it, and we came up with this jam in a matter of no time.” – Rozie
