“My car battery died, I had to get it jumped, go to AutoZone, had to buy a new battery. I had $173 in my bank account and that car battery cost me 162 bucks. The next day ‘Villain’ went viral and I don’t deliver groceries anymore,” shares Rose. “I’ve always prided myself on authenticity and hard work.”

Rose’s debut single “Villain” impacted Country Radio on March 8 and has notched 35M global streams and over 26M artist US on demand streams since its Dec. release. Her single continues to gain fast momentum and break new ground at Country radio with 24 first week adds.
