Neena Rose has over 325,000 streams this year alone, and ahead of her upcoming album, she’s teamed up with NorthSideBenji for her latest single, “Secret”.
“We filmed in a small town where all of my friends live,” Rose said. “While filming at the diner, I saw so many people I go to school with. Considering I had to run by them with a bag full of money for one of the scenes, they were definitely confused!”
“It never registered in my head I would be driving the car,” she added. “I had never driven a vintage car like that before. It was hilarious to watch me try and turn with that huge wheel but, by the end of the day, I was making three-point turns like nobody’s business!”
Talking about making music, she said, “I love it all, but writing lyrics is my favourite part of the process. It’s always been a thing I love to do. Any time I feel any type of way, I’m writing a song. If I’m happy, I’m writing… If I’m sad, I’m writing…”
“And I’m always listening to new beats… Maybe I shouldn’t say this, but it’s not uncommon for me to duck away at school and listen to music. I’ll play 30 different backing tracks to flesh out what feels right and solidify the sound I’m looking for.”
Rose’s breakout singles “Games”, “Circles,” “Rewind,” “Mannequin” and “(You A) Machine Gun,” has already earned her support from Spotify’s New Music Fridays, and a range of media, including The Fresh Committee, Noble Vybe, and FYI Music, to name a few.
