Introducing Rosa Linn, the 21-year-old music artist, songwriter and producer from Vanadzor, Armenia. Backed by punchy drums and polished synths, Rosa, the first woman music producer in her country, has the goal of becoming Armenia’s first global music artist and sharing the stories from her region in both English and Russian.
Her debut in America came out swinging with the powerful track “KING,” alongside the ultra-talented electro-pop sensation KIIARA. Opening with a bilingual hook in both Russian and English, this song paints the picture of two different life experiences through powerful vocal performances from both artists against bouncing warm synths, heavy drums and a mesmerizing hook. Linn’s vocal range is showcased throughout the performance and is complimented by the equally dynamic KIIARA.
The video highlights Rosa Linn and Kiiara, two artists whose global story connects them, with Kiiara representing an American perspective, and Rosa, the global. Sharing stories and lyrics in both English and Russian (Russian is the second most common language spoken in Armenia), “KING” showcases the glorification of western culture and fame not being all it’s cut out to be through both Kiiara and Rosa’s lens.
