Lily Rose’s first single “Villain” signaled she had something different to say than many other country upstarts. In the smoky midtempo ballad, Lily Rose offers to be the bad guy in a recently ended relationship so her ex can shine, even though the story reveals a different truth.
“Villain,” which exploded on TikTok last December and ended up landing Lily Rose a manager and label deal with Big Loud and Republic, peaked at No 6 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart, as well as reaching No. 2 on the Country Digital Song Sales chart and No. 36 on Hot Country Songs.
Follow-up “Overnight Sensation” was ripped from Lily Rose’s own life story of playing clubs in her native Georgia and her emotional journey to remaining committed to her passion, while her latest release, “Remind Me of You,” laments how her new romance holds no thrall over her because she doesn’t remind her enough of her previous love.
