Transporting us to our feels within the first three seconds of the song, is R&B singer-songwriter Roman Rouge with his heart-wrenching new single “I Cry”. Pulling inspiration from the guilt and regret of ending a relationship impulsively, Rouge soulfully sings over a guitar-tinged bass line with rolling drums echoing in the background. The impassioned artist skilfully pulls his creativity from the likes of Majid Jordan and The Weeknd, for a tune that has us breaking the repeat button.
Speaking on the song, the rising singer said, “The lyrics talk about a drink getting me buzzed and not being able to see is symbolism for myself taking in my toxic traits (alcohol) and being impulsive and not making good decisions – being buzzed out my mind.”
Bursting with personality and talent, the singer encourages those to be their most authentic selves with his relatable music and lyricism. With more music on the way, we’re curious to see where the next step of his career will take him.
