Once again, Rosaye’s whiskey voice is delicious, and I’m here to tell you I’m devouring every note. This song has not left my media player since I put it in a week ago!
There’s no dismal teen bubblegum drivel here. This is what pop music should be. The track resounds with its percussion, string pads and piano hooks, telling the listener that Rosaye is definitely on her way. For some reason she calls to mind a mystical blend of Enya and a powerhouse Pat Benatar – strong music, good beat, great lyrics, and just one heck of a song.
Nowhere is her lyrical tenacity more prevalent than on “Let Me Be”, where she tells a loved-one that he needs to move on, because after the countless promises and disillusions, she already has: “Leave me alone just let me be, why wait till now to come through for me, Better late than never means nothing to me, Leave me alone and let me be…”
Her songs are well rounded, yet also catchy, but never fluffy. I think it comes down to the fact that Rosaye can really sing and has a subtly that you won’t find in many voices. She is equally comfortable singing pop and ballads.
Rosaye “Let Me Be” available now in most online stores.
