Rather than painting pictures with metaphors, emerging vocalist ROSA is confronting his personal battles head-on with his new single "BLOW."

In the newly released track, he speaks candidly about his struggles with mental health and drug abuse, having suffered from depression since an early age. He also covered up a severe cocaine addiction for years, starting with recreational use and quickly succumbing into a repetitive cycle.

According to the Amsterdam-based artist, the new song and its accompanying self-directed video are meant to rip the bandaid off and address his addiction without romanticizing the problem in the process.
