Song of the Day: Only – Rowlene (Feat. WurlD)

Award-winning, platinum-selling R&B Pop sensation, ROWLENE indulges a passionate courtship with her latest offering ‘Only (Feat. WurlD)’ .

Recently emerging from a 2-year hiatus with her sultry icebreaker ‘Would You Like That’, ‘Only’, the second single off Rowlene’s new seven-track EP Frequency, is an ode to one of the most essential love languages to maintain the spark between two lovebirds, the Art Of Pleasure. Complemented by sensual sonic texture and courting lyricism, the intimate future mash hit sets the mood for not only a craving for extravagant displays of affection but a simple appreciation for the little things.

Speaking on the creative process of ‘Only’ and what music lovers can expect from her EP, Rowlene shares:

“WurlD and I hadn’t met until the song was complete. The collaboration was effortless and organic.. ‘‘Frequency’ has so many definitions, from science to math, it is a significant observation that always hints to ‘more’. This project follows exactly that notion. Each song represents a twist or turn in the journey we call finding love and sometimes ourselves. One’s cycle can never be compared to another’s, yet when you’ve matched the energies when you’ve synchronized with someone – magic happens.”

‘Only’ is out now via Platoon. Have a listen below…
