18-year-old Southern California singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Claire Rosinkranz is serving up a new single entitled “i h8 that i still feel bad for u” via slowplay/Republic Records. Listen to “i h8 that i still feel bad for u” below.
The track channels all kinds of nineties alternative pop feels with its gritty guitar, energetic rhythm, and attitude-laced refrain, but it’s also got a distinctly dynamic modern spirit.
About the new tune, Claire commented, “I was driving with one of my friends, and we were talking about a toxic relationship. She said that she hates that she still feels bad for this person even though she was treated poorly by them. I loved that idea so I wrote a song about it.”
Claire just crossed the 1 billion global stream threshold for her entire catalog. Her breakout “Backyard Boy” has gathered 905 million streams and inspired 3 million-plus TikTok creates. It also took home the MTV Trending VMA for “Best Breakthrough Song.” Her 6 Of A Billion EP amassed 93 million global streams. Her latest single “don’t miss me” has eclipsed 11 million cumulative streams in addition to fueling 62K TikTok creates.
Next up, she hits the road on her 2022 North American Headline Tour with support from Aidan Bissett. For nearly a month, the tour visits major markets, kicking off February 21 in Washington, DC at Union Stage, with stops in Brooklyn, NY at Music Hall of Williamsburg February 25, West Hollywood at The Roxy March 16, and finally concluding in Phoenix, AZ at Valley Bar on March 19.
