After releasing her 2021 debut EP, ’20mg of Happiness,’ singer and songwriter ROSIE wasted no time moving into the next phase of her career. Last year, she released singles like “Next Life,” “Something I Hate” and “Good For Me,” which promoted the importance of self-love. ROSIE’s fans quickly took to these singles, sending streaming numbers into the millions – something they do time and time again. ROSIE’s fans fully acknowledge and embrace her honesty, knowing that it can be difficult but necessary to speak on troubling thoughts and feelings. For her next single, ROSIE continues to focus on healing and self-love, helping others find a way to let these actions into their lives as well.
On “Startover,” ROSIE channels her battle with her mental health into an optimistic piano ballad. Giving us more of a pop sound than we are used to hearing from her, she confidently sings her way through the fight, addressing the need for change. She shares, “If we keep going the way that things are going, we’ll go crazy / The compromise will tear us apart / And maybe giving up is good for us and it won’t be easy, but starting over is the hardest part.” You can check it out below.
About “Startover,” ROSIE explains,
“‘Startover’ is about my relationship with myself and my mental health. When writing it, I was in a period of my life where I felt like I was in a constant fight with myself. This song is me realizing that I needed to let go of certain parts of who I was that were no longer serving me and start rebuilding myself from the ground up. I hope this song finds anyone else who’s experiencing these feelings, and I hope that they’re able to see that they are not alone in what they’re going through.”
“Startover” is from ROSIE’s upcoming sophomore EP, due out in the spring. In the meantime, you can listen to the track over on platforms like Spotify, SoundCloud, and Apple Music.
