Jul 16, 2020
ROZES is back with a brand-new single “All Up In My Head” alongside a stunning animated visualizer today – listen now via your preferred listening service. ROZES looks inward on the track and encourages listeners – and herself – to stop overthinking and practice and embrace self-love. She says:
“When I wrote ‘All Up In My Head,’ I wanted to talk about the insecurities people face living in their own bodies. No matter how many times others tell us we’re beautiful & worthy, sometimes it’s hard to find self-love. A lot of times I wish I could see myself through the eyes of those who love me, and I know I’m not alone in that.”
“All Up In My Head” follows several new collaborations for ROZES throughout the past year. Most recently, she lent her vocals to two album cuts on Gabby Barrett’s latest LP Goldmine – “Strong” and “Footprints on the Moon” – released in June 2020. Collaborations are nothing new for ROZES; her talent has led to collaborations with The Chainsmokers, Galantis, Big Gigantic, Logic, Cheat Codes and more.
With over 1 BILLION streams under her belt, ROZES has built an impressive career and discography in just five short years with her undeniable vocal ability and songwriting skill set that has quickly established her as one of pop’s most ubiquitous voices. Keep reading to find out the inspiration behind the new track as well as the moment she realized her dream had become a reality!
1. Where did the inspiration behind “All Up In My Head” come from?
Throughout my 20s I have struggled with self-love and body image. I wanted to put it into words to kind of explain myself and what it’s like being in a relationship with someone and loving them, while struggling to love myself. I do wish I loved myself the way the people closest to me do, but the reality is that I’m just not there yet. I know this struggle is common, and I guess putting it into a song made me feel less alone in it.
2.Throughout your music career, what has been your biggest “pinch me, I’m dreaming moment”?
The first time I performed at Coachella was also the first time I had ever been to Coachella. Being at that music festival alone is an unreal experience, but to perform it is indescribable. Looking back, it still feels like such a huge moment.
3. Are there any hobbies outside of music that contribute to your musicality? In essence, a hobby that rejuvenates your creativity?
I love reading! I draw a lot of lyrical inspiration from the characters within the books that I read.
4. Within the industry, you always have to be striving towards something. What is the dream you’re currently striving towards?
Right now I’m working on becoming a better producer so I can start adding some production to my own songs. I’m striving to be a limitless creator. I just want to keep releasing music and expanding my crowd of listeners.
5. Do you have a favorite lyric or song of yours that encapsulates who you are as an artist?
That’s so hard to pick! Every song I write typically captures a moment or a feeling of something I’m going through or have gone through. If I had to pick maybe it would be from my song “Call Me” – “Just know that you can call me, and I’ll always be there.” I think this is a good way to describe me as an artist and just as a human. No matter where I am or what time it is, I’ll be there for someone in need.
6. What is your favorite part about this line of work? Your least favorite? Why?
I love that I get to meet so many different people and communicate and build relationships through music. I can be a very shy person, but music challenges me, and I love that. I think my least favorite thing is probably having to have a social media presence. Sometimes social media can lead me down this path of comparison and negative thoughts. It’s hard as an artists to remind myself that I am creating a career of sharing music, I’m not trying to be a social media influencer. Sometimes those lines can become very blurry.
7. Give us a glimpse into your musical upbringing. Who or what initially influenced your passion for music?
I grew up in a very musical household. Everyone in my family can play at least two instruments. Music has always been within me, but I think struggles with mental health is what led me to write.
8. Was there a pivotal moment that made you realize you wanted to pursue music full-time?
I always wanted to pursue music full time, but I think I realized that I actually could when my song with The Chainsmokers came out. It wasn’t just a dream anymore, it was my reality, which was a wild thing to witness.
9. Being an artist do you ever get a sense that you are more comfortable on stage than off?
I try to be the same person on stage and off. I actually make it a point to show my listeners that I’m just a normal girl who likes to dance around and sing on stage. I just want people to know how real their dreams can be, and that they don’t have to change themselves or be someone else to achieve them.
