Ella Rosa shares the ethereal new visuals for her track “Just Me (Feat. 24HRS)”, a dedication to her younger self, aesthetically inspired by Wes Anderson
Ella Rosa has always been music minded. Inspired by the greats such as Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse and Nina Simone, after moving to Manhattan at age 11, Ella nurtured her musical curiosity by studying opera. From the age of 16, Rosa started writing and releasing her own music, gaining support from entertainment heavyweights, and finding herself on Spotify playlists.
Her track “Just Me (Feat. 24HRS)” explores her life before fame, chronicling her musical journey and her struggles with people-pleasing in her youth. Capturing attention with its intriguing banjo opening, Ella’s soulful vocals layer to track the story of her self-discovery.
Revealing the visuals for the track, Ella explains: ‘This was by far my favorite music video to create. With the help of the director Kevin Von Puttkamer and the team of unreal creatives, we pulled together a real narrative that fit with the lyrics. I wanted this music video to be an ode to my younger self and create a mirror between that and my current artist self. Because the song speaks of vulnerability, I wanted to make the dance scenes super sparse so the audience could understand how I feel 24/7; watched, judged, and alone (sad, but true)… Hope ya like it fam!’
