Sounds | Lily Rose, Overnight Sensation


Qua stem en thema hélemaal country en toch springt deze Lily Rose uit de grijze massa die het genre produceert. Haar sound is groots en modern (country meets pop en zelfs wat hip hop) en toch zit er iets in dat doet terugdenken naar de 'roots' van het genre. Met dergelijke nummers - en het is nog maar haar vijfde single - heeft Lily Rose een grote toekomst voor zich. Luister ook naar: Villain Better Than That

Overnight Sensation was written in 2019 with Rose’s close friends Matt Morrisey, Morgan Brock and Lauren Hungate as they dreamed up what it would be like to see sudden success. “I honestly don’t know if there’s a more personal song in my arsenal than Overnight Sensation. Who knew that when we wrote the song in 2019 it would be the ultimate foreshadowing of me signing a record deal because of a viral moment,” reflects Rose. “I’m lucky to have written it with some of my closest friends. Getting to share this moment with them is extremely special to me. I needed this song through all of the hard times in my career, and I hope it helps other people keep the foot on the gas.”


Touting a sound described as contemporary, vulnerable and raw, Lily Rose is blasting onto the Nashville music scene with her new single, “Villain." After releasing on Dec. 15, "Villain" debuted in the #1 spot on the iTunes all-genre and country charts. The singer/songwriter teased the haunting track on TikTok and was immediately met with thousands of new fans clamoring for the song’s full version. In less than a week since Rose leaked a clip of “Villain,” she has quadrupled her social media following across all platforms, and has notched over 6M views, 2.8M likes and 512K followers on TikTok.


Rose grew up in Atlanta as a self-taught drummer and guitarist but it wasn’t until high school that she discovered her voice. As an athlete and distinguished singer, Rose had to make the decision of which avenue to pursue. Bar sets and cover shows in her college town of Athens, GA led to headlining and sold out shows across Athens, Atlanta, Nashville and NYC, prompting her to make the move to Nashville in 2017.


Her musical influences range from Rascal Flatts, Keith Urban and Bruce Springsteen to Katy Perry reflecting her innate ability to adopt “futuristic” 21st century country sound. She currently resides in Nashville where she continues to write and record new music with a focus on melody and hook driven songwriting style, which has proven to resonate among country, pop and rock alike.
