Disrupt Exclusive Interview With Rozé: Behind the Music

Just recently we had the pleasure of digitally sitting down with gospel artist Rozé and what lies behind the music. In the interview below, you’ll find out a little more about the fast-rising singer.

Hi Rozé! Tell us about your background getting to where you are today?

I come from a family of entertainers from singers, actors, preachers, playwrights, producers, and performers. I went to Full Sail University when I was 18 and began my music journey. Full Sail was instrumental in training and providing the tools, Pro tools, and Logic Pro X, ect., that I use to record. When I recorded my first song using these state-of-the-art tools, everything took off from there.

Where are you from? When did you start music?

I’m from West Chester, Ohio. I started recording and taking my craft seriously at age 18. However, I started dancing and entertaining at the tinder age of 7.

What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?

My most challenging time is when God anointed me to write Jesus. When I began to write the song and the words, “No Hate No Violence,” came into my spirit, I knew I was embarking upon a global mantle God meant for me to carry. So having to create, write, and perform “Jesus,” organize the “No Hate No Violence” Movement, and create and design the Rozè Signature NHNV Clothing Line were the most challenging tasks I’ve ever accomplished.

How did you get into music?

When I was a kid, I used to watch my brother,  Johnny B, record music with his friends in the basement and make fire records released to the national reporting radio stations. It always inspired me to want to record vocals and create a variety of music. Not only do I have my personal role models and inspirations right here in my family, but more importantly, God has called and anointed me to create the music I make.

Are you currently signed or independent?

I am currently signed under Top Shelf Music, Inc. Record Label owned by my mother, the legendary Sylvia Thomas.

Who inspires you the most musically?

Man I have a whole mixture of artists, but the most influential would be Michael Jackson and Chris Brown.

What do you want people to take away after listening to your music?

I want people to realize you can still have fun and enjoy positive music with lyrics about love, unity, and christ. I also want my music to inspire others to rise above the hate and the violence.

What is the purpose/reason driving you to pursue music?

I always had this feeling in my spirit that music is the most important thing to pursue. Music is my biggest passion outside of anything else. God also keeps me driven when he gives me new ideas and songs to create.

What is your greatest achievement as a musician?

I kind of created a whole new genre of music. My sound is very unique to traditional gospel music. I would classify it as Gospel Hip Hop. Also, I see it as a privilege and an honor that I help people feel God’s love and anointing through my melodies and lyrics. I also love seeing people dance to my music considering the fact that I’m a dancer.

Do you produce your own music? If not, who do you work with?

I do produce some of my own music, but I have worked with other well-known producers that’s done work for multiple artist.

Who is one artist you wish you could work with?

I think Justin Bieber and myself could do a crazy collaboration and add a whole new vibe to the Christian and R&B genres of music.

Tell us about any new music you have coming out?

I have a lot of records under my belt that I can’t wait to release. I have a break up record called “Adios,” but what makes it different is that I’m adding God to the story and telling my listeners “even in rough times, you can still thank God through what he’s blessed you with regardless if your significant other breaks your heart”.

What does a day inside your shoes look like?

You’re always on the move to do something different and versatile. It’s always super busy. When I wake up in the morning, I pray and then I start writing and recording my songs for hours. After that, I’m in the dance studio for hours working on my moves and performances with my dancers to prepare for shows and tours.

Anything else you want the audience to know about you?

I don’t just stick to one thing in the arts. I love exploring different genres of music and styles of art. I’m a creator of many things so I’m that one artist that would be unpredictable and versatile.
