Known for her catchy lyrics, Rose has been known to use her voice as an instrument. With the ability to play on words and use clever puns, the artist struck gold with her 2019 smash ‘Big Mouth,’ Since then, her star has continued to rise with massive streaming numbers and a big following to match (2 million on Instagram alone). Her rise to fame is certainly of no surprise to those who have been there since the beginning. Simply put, Rubi Rose was born with it.
“Growing up my parents would always play music around the house. They played Prince, Michael Jackson, etc., so that’s where my passion came from. In high school/college I was DJing and from there I just kept going. When I released ‘Big Mouth,’ L.A. Reid heard it, and I got signed off that song. That’s when I knew I could take it seriously.”
Inspired by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and more, Rose made it a point to not study their music, but their showmanship as well.
“Yeah I was definitely inspired by Nicki, Britney, Christina, etc. All the pop girls too. I liked their aesthetic, how they dressed, and everything else.”
