Sounds | Baby Rose - One Last Dance



Soms denk ik "Het wordt me allemaal te veel, ik kan gewoonweg niet meer volgen, ik mis mogelijks leuke nieuwe songs, nieuwe artiesten, ...". Wanneer ik dan iemand als Baby Rose 'ontdek', dan is alle leed verdwenen en krijg ik terug wat extra energie om te blijven gaan. Hoe zalig is dit nummer, wow! En die stem! Daarenboven komt nog eens het fantastische arrangement van deze song. Ze noemen het zelf een country song, maar dat hoor ik er absoluut niet in en zou dan weer eens muziekliefhebbers hier bij ons afschrikken. Ik hoor een jazzy vibe, véél vintage soul en een tijdloos karakter. Lekker wegdromen en de alledaagse beslommeringen vergeten.

"BADBADNOTGOOD and I recorded this song on the day we met, just as evening approached. I asked for one more, a country song, and when the chords came, I sang from the heart without needing to write the words down. ‘One Last Dance’ is important to me because it reflects my feelings of longing and love for someone who sees me as a villain in their story. I used to blame them too, but with time, realized where I was wrong and ultimately hoped for a chance to make it right. There’s a strong part of me that wishes we could try again, pretend it never fell apart, even while knowing it will never be the same. The longing is less about the person and more about the feelings behind the memories we shared. A true testament to the growing pains in life, the music is a sweet underscore of a longing, pride-less goodbye."


Baby Rose is undeniably a once-in-a-lifetime artist. Having amassed over 28 million global streams to date, Rose burst onto the scene with her 2019 debut project, To Myself, which landed her early co-signs by SZA, J. Cole, James Blake, Kehlani, and LeBron James. The project received large critical acclaim from The New York Times, Pitchfork, Pigeons & Planes, VOGUE, NPR, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Complex, Hypebeast, VICE, NME, Harper’s Bazaar, ELLE, and many more. It was followed by a mesmerizing NPR Tiny Desk performance for the books, a sold-out headlining worldwide tour and major placements on HBO’s ‘Insecure’ and Kenya Barris’ award-winning ‘Grownish’.

Later the singer received a GRAMMY nomination for her contribution to Dreamville’s Revenge of the Dreamers III album and was also featured on albums from Big KRIT and Matt Martians. She also opened for Ari Lennox and Snoh Aalegra on their celebrated 2019 tours. In late 2020, Baby Rose made her late-night TV debut with an arresting performance of her breakout song “Show You” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.  In early 2023, Rose performed the title track “Heavy Is The Hand” for the film Creed III alongside Dreamville. Following in 2023, Rose released her critically acclaimed album, Through and Through, which garnered large critical acclaim from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Billboard, People Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, V Magazine, FADER, ESSENCE, Complex, MTV and more. Featuring explosive collaborations with Smino and Georgia Anne Muldrow, the Through and Through saw Rose carve out a lane for herself that was unrestricted by genres and showcased her extraordinary range as a skilled singer, songwriter and executive producer. On the heels of the album, Rose embarked on a national co-headlining tour alongsideQ. aptly-named the Through The Soul tour closing out the year strong.
