Baby Rose today has announced her highly anticipated new album, Through and Through, which is scheduled for release on April 28th. In anticipation of this, Rose has shared an explosive new single, ‘I Won’t Tell’ ft. Smino, along with a visual to match which includes a snippet of her new song ‘Paranoid’ at the end of the film. Directed by Audrey Ellis Fox, the visual depicts the ups and downs of a heist scene with Rose testing out her acting credentials.

After bursting onto the scene with her 2019 debut project To Myself, Rose has amassed over 25 million global streams to date and has found praise from the likes SZA, J. Cole, James Blake,Kehlani, and LeBron James. The project also received widespread critical acclaim, and saw Rose make her debut on the NPR Tiny Desk series, as well as leading to a sold-out worldwide tour.

Speaking on the new track, Rose says:

I Won’t Tell’ is a fun record that came out of a sleepless night in LA jamming with friends. It was 4 AM when we started on it and with our inhibitions gone, a magic surfaced that allowed us to just flow. When I began to write it out, I wanted to embrace my own chaos, my shadows. Then Smino slid into it effortlessly and that’s just what this song is, effortless. He’s one of my favorite artists because he’s authentically him and you can’t pin him down to any box.”
