Roses, behind the scene of the global hit
In 2016 the New Yorker rapper SAINt JHN, Guyanese born, uploaded “Roses” on his Soundcloud profile. Since then, the melancholic trap track with a black and white video achieved a fair amount of views. However, it did not look like an hit that might have changed his indie career.
SAINt JHN didn’t know that after a few years, the Kazakh guy Imanbek Zeikenov born in 2000, would have revisited his track using the slap-house sound.
Imanbek was inspired by east European musical influences, especially by “In My Mind” of Lithuanian producer Dynoro. Thus, in September 2019, “Roses” starts its new life going around a lot of radio and European music charts.
At the moment in the States, Roses is certified gold. The fast-growing, also on Spotify, reaching the top5 position, might improve the awards so far achieved.
