Rosa Linn and Kiiara – “KING” music video
“I want my music to have a message, and as soon as I wrote ‘KING,’ I knew it had to be my first release. It addresses the political undertones between Russia and America. and I’m thankful to have Kiiara share her and the American perspective of what fame is like.” – Rosa Linn explained
The track and video present two artists whose global story connects wholeheartedly. Kiiara represents the American perspective, and Rosa, the global perspective. Sharing stories and lyrics in both English and Russian (the second most common language spoken in Armenia), “KING” showcases the glorification of western culture and fame not being all that it’s cut out to be through Kiiara’s and Rosa’s lens. This release from Rosa Linn is an exciting moment for global pop music from West Asia and the growing globalization around where talent can be found and fostered.
“You’re always on your own getting the gigs and finding the audience. With no opportunities and sponsors because there’s no infrastructure. I was afraid that I wouldn’t be given a chance. But I didn’t give up on my dream.” – Rosa Linn explained
Rosa Linn is fixated on becoming a global pop icon. She grew up in a small city with strict and conservative views. At the age of six, she started playing the piano. Her experience as a musician had largely been a solitary experience. Now, Rosa wants to diminish the fear that music from Armenia will never be heard.
‘KING’ contains a relatable narrative and pleasing vocals. The likable tune possesses synth-laden instrumentation flavored with a contemporary pop vibration. Furthermore, “KING” is Rosa Linn’s debut single. The song serves as a tasty introduction to what listeners can expect to hear from her in the near future.
