Canadian RnB-pop powerhouse Neena Rose presses Rewind in her latest lo-fi banger.
“It encompasses that nostalgic feeling associated with a past relationship,” Rose muses about the track, which has seen early support from influential playlisters. “It’s about dwelling on the memories made with a once-special someone, and wishing for a ‘do-over.’”
Heartbreak is one of time’s oldest tales, and Rose’s perspective serves those mixed emotions to audiences on a sonic silver platter. “Mixed feelings are inevitable result of an unexpected split,” she says. “This song is about knowing you’ve lost any chance of rekindling those same feelings, and fantasizing about ‘rewinding’ time before the connection was lost.”
Matters of modern romance feature predominantly in Rose’s extensive songwriting repertoire; 2018’s breakout releases Games and Circles tackled love gone awry with a contemporary edge, and were critically acclaimed. She has been dubbed an “amazing young talent, incredible vocalist and witty lyricist” and a “sheer joy” to work with by 80 Empire of Universal Music Publishing Group.
This month, Neena Rose will be the first young Canadian female artist at the California Copyright Conference in Los Angeles; she will appear at the Young Guns — Innovative and Thriving in the New World Music Order event on March 19. Moderated by Heavy Harmony Music’s Rhonda Bedikian, Rose will contribute to the panel-led discussion alongside Defend Music A&R exec Greg Katz and artist, composer and producer NoMBe.
