ROZES chatted with Digital Journal about her new music video for "Under the Grave," as well as the success of "Roses" with The Chainsmokers.
On her new "Under the Grave" music video, she said, "My new video for 'Under The Grave' is putting a visual to the open apology that the song is about. I wanted to show that there are different ways to react to emotional situations and that there is no response that is "more correct" than another. The video came about through the help of my management, publicist, and of course, the creator and director Jesse Deflorio. Jesse really understood the vision I was going for and brought it to life."
She is the lead vocalist on "Roses," which was a smash collaboration that she did with The Chainsmokers. "It felt amazing to see and to still see the success of 'Roses.' It's funny because the reason I decided to discontinue college was because I was skipping classes to head up to NYC and write… I like to say that the plaque I received from the song is my diploma."
Regarding her plans for the future, she said, "Well, I have been doing a lot of wiring, not only for myself, but for other artists as well, so I’m hoping to have some more music out there soon. I plan on touring and releasing another EP."
Her greatest musical influences include Amy Winehouse, old school No Doubt, Fleetwood Mac and Alicia Keys. "They definitely influence my writing," she said.
Each day, she is motivated by the fact that she is literally living her dream. "There is always a story to tell and always music to make," she said.
For aspiring singers, she said, "Hard work pays off, and nothing comes to those who wait. Every day is a hustle and you have to be willing to ditch all your plans for your music."
She listed The Weeknd as her dream male collaboration choice. "I've actually never thought about this before, but I'd say The Weeknd would definitely be a dope collaboration," she said.
For ROZES, success means "infinity." "I don’t believe that at any moment I will sit and think 'wow, I'm successful.' I don’t think the hustle will ever end because there will be always another goal I’m chasing… success to me is infinite."
For her fans, she concluded, "I love you ROZEbuds! Thank you for being open and emotional with me, and thank you for being on this journey with me."
