An empowering hip-hop single that reclaims power.
Melbourne-based musical creative, Poppy Rose, is a rapper, singer, and producer. In 2017, Rose arrived on the hip-hop scene with her freshman single “Ocean.” Since its release, the song has gained plenty of traction, earning more than a million streams. Despite struggling with a two-year battle against addiction and dealing with the effects of the pandemic, she has pushed through her hardships and emerged stronger than ever. Poppy’s discography is available on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music. Her latest drop is the hip-hop single “My God.” According to the artist, her new track is “an anthem about reclaiming yourself from a struggle with addiction.”
Mesmerizing and bouncy beats make “My God” an emotional examination of self-empowerment and overcoming addiction. Additionally, there’s a message of feeling good about your choices and not destroying your self-esteem over them. Lyrics like “I’ve been working quite hard, Demons that I fight off” and “Never let down my guard, I’vе been working graveyards, Never taking time off” powerfully reflect on personal struggles and desires to move on to something better. Despite its tough topic, the track never feels too dark and instead stays hopeful while remaining authentic. It’s the kind of message a desperate audience, no matter the age, needs to hear. Likewise, Rose’s commanding presence is an experience that can’t be missed. So, press play on “My God” to get motivated to rise above your negative experiences.
