A former A&R executive and DJ, Rosey has turned the tables to become a performing artist with much potential. This debut brings together rock, blues, and hip-hop musicalities, which provide the perfectly strong foundation over which Rosey's no-holds-barred, Fiona Apple-esque vocals ride. First track "Love"—originally featured on the Bridget Jones's Diary soundtrack—finds Rosey huskily telling "love" that she has changed and is willing to be found. "One" is a sexy ode to the love of a lifetime and features an unforgettably silky chorus. On "Desperate," she boldly tells an old lover that she will never be desperate enough to be with him again. The Eastern-inspired riffs on "Like a Dream" are perfect for the summer, as is the slow groove of "Heaven." A strong, sensual, and sassy debut.—JK
