Here is a brand new single from Hakeem Roze who is a seductively intriguing singer and songwriter. Half rapper, half R & B artist, Roze melodically dances between delivering hard hitting rhymes and singing effortlessly.
Roze is currently based in Toronto, Canada far from his humble up bring in Nigeria. R & B with a pop appeal, he is not afraid to experiment with different sounds. Incorporating both his Nigerian and American influences Roze has infused a distinct style to his music, which is well welcomed in the Canadian and international communities.
“I love singing and rapping about personal and second hand experiences of relationships and life from my perspective. I knew this is what I wanted to do,” Roze professes.
A sound that attracted, Miami based super producers Cool and Dre, who featured him on one of their tracks with artist Coehound “She Likes It.” Roze continued to gain notoriety in the southern region, with a Street Mind Productions and singer Lloyd collaboration. His catchy and relatable lyrics impressed both production companies and Jive, who all took interest in signing him. Although fortunate for the opportunity the intense negotiations ended with Roze choosing to remain unsigned.
Hakeem roze has opened for Drake, Bun B, Trey Songz, and Bobby Valntino. Currently he is working on more material for his up coming album. Roze has recently finished a tour with reggae superstar Sean Paul.
