This past spring, singer-songwriter ROSIE continued to give us beautiful, emotionally complex songs with the release of “Next Life.” A bittersweet anthem, “Next Life” focuses on moving past dark or crippling thoughts in order to live a more fulfilling life. The track was ROSIE’s first release since her debut album, 20mg of Happiness, signaling the start of her next chapter. With her new single, “Something I Hate,” ROSIE follows suit of her previous releases and maintains her “no filters, no bullshit” attitude.
A soft but cathartic listen, “Something I Hate” attempts to reconcile public perception with personal interpretation. ROSIE achingly tells us about struggling to understand how someone could love her when she has a hard time loving herself. Over gentle piano and acoustic guitar, she sings, “And I know you always say you could never hate any part of me” and “My heart is trying to hear you but my body doesn’t trust a word you say,” and asks, “How could you love something I hate?” You can check it out below.
About the single, ROSIE shares,
“Creating ‘Something I Hate’ was such a painful yet cathartic experience for me. I’ve always tried to write about what scares me, but speaking on such deep-rooted insecurities such as body dysmorphia and eating disorders was truly terrifying. I hope this song reaches every single person who needs to hear it and that it helps to heal others the way creating it has healed me.”
You can listen to “Something I Hate” on platforms like SoundCloud, Apple Music, and Spotify.
