Ariana and the Rose Spills The Truth about F*ck Boys on New Track
Listen to “Fuck Boy” HERE
Today, Brooklyn’s “bold, brave and heartfelt” (SPIN) synth-pop master and viral social media truth-teller Ariana and the Rose drops what will surely become an anthem for those ready to show the door to anyone not worth their time. Her song "Fuck Boy" is a prime slice of modern underground disco and is a cheeky, catchy, certifiable bop that she has been teased during recent live performances in NYC to audience cheers and singalongs. Listen HERE.
The track is off of Ariana and the Rose’s highly anticipated forthcoming debut album ‘Lonely Hearts Club’ (out July 29). Ariana will bring the album to life at NYC’s Mercury Lounge on July 28th. Tickets HERE.
“This song was inspired by not only my experience but hearing the personal experiences of so many friends and people online with f-boys,” said Ariana. “I wanted to write something with a bit of wink in it while also empowering people to take their power back in those situations. The song is a true middle finger to anyone who doesn't treat you with the respect you deserve and an anthem for choosing yourself.”
Leading up to today’s release, Ariana launched the “Fuck Boy Hotline”, and has rolled out her “Fuck Boys Of The Zodiac” series on Tik Tok andInstagram, spilling some hilarious insights to the behaviors of the “fuck boy” depending on their astrological sign. The comments section of her posts are flooded with fans reveling in the irreverent accuracy & playfulness of the posts, with some people in particular proclaiming “these are so fucking funny”,“Ohhhh so true!” and “This series needs to win a short form digital content Emmy Award.”
Earlier this year, Ariana and the Rose made her late night TV debut and performed her hypnotic ode to unity “Every Body” on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. Paper Magazine called the track “an electric invitation to the dance floor” and the accompanying video is a beautiful inclusive call to the dancefloor featuring a resume of nightlife & NYC/LA art world legends including (in alphabetical order) Amanda Lepore, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Cakes Da Killa, CT Hedden, The Dragon Sisters, Kandy Muse, Laith Ashley, Love Bailey, Madison Rose, Marizol, Merlot, Rhea Litre, Rify Royalty, Ryan Burke, Spencer Ludwig, & Zero Waste Daniel.
She found fame during the pandemic via Tik Tok when a video of a piano-assisted spoken word piece she posted earned an astounding 8 million views on the social media platform in less than a week. The video gained extra exposure when it was shared by the likes of Betches (via Instagram), NYT best-selling author Meena Harris & Tony-nominated actress Laura Benanti. She found further success on TikTok when another spoken word piece went viral being used by over 11k followers including Alyssa Milano and Girlbossand has teamed up with brands empowering women, like Knix.
Ariana and the Rose has received past acclaim from Consequence of Sound, Vice, Time Magazine, Refinery 29, LOGO, and more.
