Rising pop antihero Rose Villain has revealed her latest single “SWOOP!” The infectious song is one not to miss and will add some serious swagger to your summer playlists.
On the song, Villain says, ““SWOOP!” is my villainous interpretation of modern payback and an ode to women not taking shit from anyone. I wrote it in LA a few months ago. I live and write most of my music in New York and when I’m in Los Angeles I have a totally different vibe, I feel hotter, darker and more bad-ass. When “SWOOP!” was created, we were all on fire in the room. It actually felt like throwing an uppercut to someone who deserved it.”
The track, produced by @iamchillpill [Nicki Minaj, Hailee Steinfeld, Chloe X Halle] and SIXPM, revives Tag Team’s classic “Whoomp! (There It Is) and is the perfect follow up to Villain’s previous song “Funeral Party,” which she released at the end of 2018 and received praise from Popdust and Refinery29, who called it “[the]best chorus not written by an English speaking native since DNCE’s “Cake By the Ocean.””
As she prepares more music, Rose Villain continues to make waves as a model. Signed to Next Model Management, she has been featured in Vogue Italy and was recently selected by Diesel for their latest campaign—even walking in their show at New York Fashion Week.
Singer, songwriter and international badass Rose Villain arrives in the US from the fashion capital of Milan, becoming one of the few Italian artists to ever sign with an American major label. Villain’s debut single, “Get The Fuck Out Of My Pool,” was released on leading Italian hip-hop label Machete Empire Records in 2016. Villain followed this up with her single, “Geisha,” via Universal Music Germany that same year. Now based in New York, Villain draws upon various musical influences from AC/DC to Kanye West. Working with producer SIXPM, her sound fuses pop, trap and 80’s vibes, while her lyrics reflect an eclectic set of interests that include poetry, aliens, criminology and natural disasters. Further music is set for release this fall.
