Sacramento, California's V.Rose began her singing career at age 15 as part of a vocal group. When the group parted ways, V. set out to create her own brand of pop and electronic dance music. Backed by her producer/dj SPEC, she came up through the Christian hip-hop scene as a feature vocalist on multiple Flame tracks and released two albums to critical acclaim. In 2015, V. Rose signed with Inpop Records and is releasing her "Hearts Up" EP on October 30th which includes "Take a Broken Heart (Featuring Derek Minor)" and "Love Shaped Heart."

From her obsession with all things pink to her bubblegum pop music style, V.Rose is a girly girl through and through. She's also a beautiful young lady whose love for God and heart for His children echoes from every lyric she writes.
"Fairy Tale Ending" is upbeat and bouncy, a song stating that life with God is even better than a fairy tale. "Love Shaped Heart" carries an encouraging message particularly to young ladies struggling with negative self-image.
If you're a hip-hop fan, you may have been captured by V.Rose's haunting vocal contribution to Flame's 2010 single "Surrender." V. collaborated with the rapper again on her 2014 album Forever After, as well as several other hip-hop artists, including KJ-52, Shonlock and Da T.R.U.T.H. In "Take a Broken Heart," she tries her own hand at rap while briefly featuring popular rapper Derek Minor. This track is a bit repetitive and seems just slightly off, perhaps because we're used to hearing V. slicing through the sound waves with her vocals rather than rapping. That being said, I applaud her for pushing her musical boundaries and trying a new style. All artists grow by trying something different with each album, and perhaps this is the start of something for V.
"Bottom To The Top" is a bio of sorts, with V.Rose reminiscing on her journey into the music business. This song is also an encouragement to listeners to persevere in following their calling in life while remembering to keep their faith top priority as they gain success.
V.Rose's music is peppy and fun, served up with giggles and cheesiness. This EP is another offering perfect for tween girls or really anyone who likes poppy, positive music.
