British artist Ella Rosa releases new single "Just Me" featuring rapper 24hrs
Today, England-born LA-based singer-songwriter Ella Rosa releases her new single "Just Me" featuring rapper 24hrs. A compelling blend of pop and R&B, the track beautifully showcases her vocals, highlights her artistic ability to consistently defy genres, and gives a nod to her upbringing in Reading, England.
"Just Me" (featuring 24hrs) sheds light on the growth that Ella Rosa has made since starting her music career. The intriguing banjo introduction is followed by Ella's vocals that speak of her struggles with people-pleasing & her youth in Reading. Made with producer Geoffro (Kehlani, Charlie Puth, and Pink Sweat$) and songwriter Kiah Victoria (Brasstracks and KAMAUU) and features a verse from 24hrs, Ella Rosa incorporates her soulful blend of lyrics and vocal runs to tell her story of self-discovery.
The song follows her reimagining of the iconic & celebrated song by Sting, "Englishman In New York" which served as the first release since Ella's 2020 debut EP 'Yellow Blazer' and carries a deeply significant personal meaning for Ella after moving from England to New York.
Since the release of her debut single at the start of 2020, Ella Rosa has garnered support from the likes of many major media outlets. For her debut EP 'Yellow Blazer', Ella collaborated with producers/artists Geoffro (Kehlani, Ed Sheeran, Beyonce, Charlie Puth, and more), Kiah Victoria (Sony ATV, ALEO, Fight Clvb, and Kozze), and more. The release of "Englishman In New York" is the first part of her next project: her sophomore EP, due to be released later this year.
