Check Out Rozes’ ‘Current Obsessions’ From Tones and I, Maggie Rogers & More: Takeover Tuesday Playlist


Welcome back to Takeover Tuesday, where each week, Streets Talkin taps chart-topping artists and tastemakers to compile their very own playlist exclusive to Streets Talkin's Spotify account. We give the artists free rein to base the list on whatever subject they choose. The only rule? Make it as creative and unique to them as possible.

Since the world first fell in love with Rozes' unique voice on The Chainsmokers' 2015 hit "Roses," she has proven to be a dance collab queen by teaming up with Galantis, Nicky Romero, Sam Feldt, Cash Cash and Big Gigantic. In 2019, Rozes went outside of the dance world and joined forces with Mat Kearney for the booming single "Walls," which uncovers the difficulties of a closed-off love interest.

"Walls" was Rozes' third release in 2019, and as 2020 gets rolling, she can't help but jam out to her latest single as she makes more music. Of course, the singer (whose real name is Elizabeth Mecel) isn't only listening to her own music, and she's sharing all of her "current obsessions" in a Takeover Tuesday playlist.

"As a musician, I sometimes find it hard to become 'lost in the music' without over analyzing every aspect of it," Rozes says in a statement. "These are the songs that currently inspire me and make me hit repeat over and over again."

Featured on her 10-song playlist are tracks by Maggie Rogers, Awolnation, Coin and Matt Maeson. She also shouts out songs from rising stars like Flora Cash, Lola Marsh and Austrailian sensation Tones and I (surprisingly, not the wildly popular "Dance Monkey"). 

Check out all of Rozes' "current obsessions" and hear why she loves them below.

Tones And I, "Johnny Run Away": I absolutely love Tones And I. I first heard of her with her song "Dance Monkey," which I also love. I love the movement and flow of this song, it feels inspiring and a bit sad at the same time. Everytime this song comes on I immediately turn the volume up

Eliza & The Delusionals, "Just Exist": To say I am obsessed with this song is an understatement. This is a song I wish I wrote. I scream sing along to this like a child when I’m in the car. The energy and concept make for the perfect result.

Rozes & Mat Kearney, "Walls": I, of course, am obsessed with my own song. This was a really fun collaboration for me and I love the energy we put into this song. I hope this makes others feel something, like it does for me.  

Matt Maeson, "Beggars Song": Picking one song from his latest album is nearly impossible because I love every single song on it. I picked this one because of the lyrics. I really connect with this and it makes me feel inspired to create, and when art makes you want to create art, I think it’s the most powerful thing. 

Coin, "Cemetery": I nerd out to this concept. I think it’s genius and such an interesting way to talk about the money hungry world we live in today. 

Flora Cash, "Missing Home": I love running to this song. It’s one of those emotionally real songs where their words are describing all my exact feelings. 

Lola Marsh, "Only For a Moment": I could listen to her voice forever. There is such a classic sound to this song and I love the energy. It feels nostalgic to me.

Sad Alex, "Routine": This song is so relatable and I love every bit of the production with her vocals. I’ve had this song on repeat since its release. 

Awolnation, "California Halo Blue": I’ve had this song on repeat since its release. It has such an epic sound to it and feels so powerful. 

Maggie Rogers, "Love You For A Long Time": I love the groove of this song. It’s so lighthearted and feel good. When I first listened to this song, it felt like I had heard it before. There a cool familiarity to it.
