ROSIE Shares New Single/Video “Next Life”

“Next Life” is a dramatic, piano-driven anthem that captures ROSIE’s difficult journey towards self-love, mental wellness and inner growth. “‘Next Life’ is a complex song for me,” she says. “Though it is painfully heartbreaking, I wanted to add a sense of hope each time the chorus circles back, ‘maybe in my next life I can live my best life.’ This song evokes a wide range of emotions, but I hope that ultimately it sends the message: we’re all just human beings, doing our best to feel our best, whether it is in this life, or in our next life.”

NAKAYA Shares “Fire Becomes Me” Single and Music Video via Ones To Watch | ‘Fire Becomes Me’ EP Out April 1 via Better Company Records

“‘Fire Becomes Me’ is a back and forth perspective between my current and past selves. I wrote this as part of a series I ran in 2020 when I felt galvanized by the world’s eyes on Black issues. I attended protests several times a week and wrote what arose within me. I shared the demos on Bandcamp and picked causes to donate proceeds to. To me, this song is about the resilience of the Black community and how in constant adversity, we take the fire and rise like a Phoenix from the ashes.”
