Singer/Songwriter Chey Rose just released her new single, “V.C.R,” today.
Rose is a Columbus, OH, native and attends Belmont University in Nashville, TN, where she majors in songwriting and is minoring in music business. Aside from her solo career, she has co-written songs with other musicians. Rose writes songs from personal life experiences, pulling memory making, nostalgia, and young love in her songs.
This song, co-written by Shir Czopp and Will McBeath, is a total 180 from her previous release, “Good Habit.” “V.C.R” is a synth-driven pop tune that talks about the feelings you have with a new crush. Sometimes that love can be unconventional just like her lyrics in this song.
About the song, Rose said,” “I love that we were able to capture a specific emotion without spoon-feeding the theme to listeners. What even is a ‘heaven cupid crush,’ or a ‘velvet cosmic rush?’ I don’t exactly know, but I can feel what it is. And love works that same exact way.”
“V.C.R.” stands for Velvet Cosmic Rush in this song, but if you are a ’90s kids, you might first think of a VCR player that you used to watch your favorite movies on. Judging from the cover art, that may be the vibe she was going for.
From the first second, the beat has you wanting to dance. The lyrics make you feel nostalgic, but also, it takes you back to when you had your first crush and all of the feelings you felt at the time. It is definitely a great song for the summer.
“V.C.R” is now available on all digital platforms.
