Ah yes, another song that has us writing through teary eyes. ‘Good For Me’ by ROSIE is about to take your sad playlists to a whole new level!
ROSIE, like many of our favorite new artists, rose to popularity during the pandemic with her debut EP, 20mg of Happiness, releasing in October 2021. You may know ROSIE from favs like ‘Never The 1,’ ‘Social Stamina,’ and her feature on John K‘s track ‘ilym,’ which have gained millions of streams on Spotify. Or for any Joshua Bassett fans, ROSIE co-wrote on ‘Used To It’ from Joshua’s EP Sad Songs In A Hotel Room… Iconic and all its synonyms.
ROSIE is back with her third release this year with ‘Good For Me,’ in which she sings her way through the trials and tribulations of heartbreak and having to recover from this, all while struggling to believe that you are worthy of love and compassion.
‘Good For Me’ is about my journey with self-love and how it took me loving and losing someone else to see that I need to find my worth within myself. The song taught me that you can’t feel joy without feeling pain, too, and that love isn’t linear.

ROSIE has been a constant mental health awareness advocate and has kept this at the forefront of everything she does. There is no difference with this release, explaining in an Instagram post the importance of being transparent about living with mental health issues.
These last couple months have been difficult, and writing a song about losing someone I care for and not feeling worthy of love was a painful and cathartic experience at the same time. I cried so many days in a row but from those tears I learned so much about myself. Out of all the lessons this song has taught me, the most important one is that I, (along with every single one of you) deserve compassion, empathy, and love.
