“Need A Friend” is the second single from Roman Rouge, a 21 year old singer from El Paso, Texas. Sharing the same hometown and producer as Khalid, many draw comparisons between the two, along with The Weeknd and Majid Jordan.
Here we have some effective minimal acoustic pop. The riffs are clean and the vocals are beautifully delivered while carrying heartfelt songwriting. “Need A Friend” is a song about not wanting to let go of someone you love”, said Rouge. “I wrote it for someone who I would rather have as a friend than lose all together”.
With Roman’s first single, “Darkness” garnering extensive support from Spotify, landing spots on Fresh Finds, New Music Friday India, Fresh Finds Index, New Pop Revolution and Chilled Pop Hits, and across sites such as Ones To Watch (premiering “Need A Friend”), Earmilk and Variance, the sky is the limit for the future pop star.
