Describing the feeling of meeting a seemingly perfect guy and the fear of learning something that may skew the perception of him. Following the saying, "ignorance is bliss", Neena Rose leaves the stranger behind before any red flags could ruin her memory of him.
Canadian singer/songwriter and Pop/R&B artist, Neena Rose, has emerged onto the music scene with a magnetism not encountered everyday. Between her breakout single, 2018's "Games", and all it successors, the talented Neena Rose is shaking things up and taking the industry by storm.
The Hamilton, Ontario-based artist has received extensive early support and has garnered large following across social media platforms, especially on TikTok.

Between her breakout single — 2018’s “Games” — its successors, “Circles” and “Rewind”, and this year’s forthcoming EP 333, Canadian singer/songwriter and pop-R&B artist Neena Rose has emerged onto the music scene with a magnetism not encountered every day.
The 17-year old Hamilton, Ontario-based artist has received extensive early support from media and playlisters, and was a recent panelist at the California Copyright Conference, making her the youngest female Canadian to speak thus far.
Her debut single — “Rock N Roll Lullaby” — was recorded at age 12 with Diamond/Platinum producer/songwriter Roy “Royalty” Hamilton III (Britney Spears, Nas), and the five years since has included performing for audience sizes up to 14,000 (including Oprah Winfrey), and singing CHCH legacy program Tiny Talent Time’s new theme song.
She’s an “amazing young talent,” says Universal Music Publishing Group’s 80 Empire. “She’s an incredible vocalist and witty lyricist… Working with her is a sheer joy!”
“Hellafun to talk with,” Cashbox Magazine’s Lenny Stoute adds. She’s a “combination of music biz savvy and emotional intelligence, with a commanding voice. Gonna go far.”
“I love it all, but writing lyrics is my favourite part,” Neena muses, reflecting on previous dips into nu-country, emo rock, and lofty pop bops before finding her most authentic self in R&B. “I want people to gain empowerment from my music. I want it to communicate to them: ‘You’ve got this. You can be different. You can do anything.’”
It’s true, and Neena Rose is leading by perfect example.
