Ghanaian-Filipino alternative pop singer Anabel Rose returns with her second single after her successful debut single, “Love Me or Die”. With about 50,000 global streams, she made waves on international Spotify editorial playlists in Nigeria and the Philippines and urban radio in Ghana and Nigeria. The independent Afropop artist is set to make waves once again with her just-released second single, Do Not Disturb (DND). This is a genre-blending piece that promises to take listeners on a delightful sonic journey.
Do Not Disturb is a fusion of alternative R&B/pop, Bossa nova, trap, and highlife, a unique blend that defies genre boundaries. With its mesmerizing rhythms and Anabel Rose’s ethereal vocals, this song offers a fresh and eclectic take on a 20-something-year-old’s journey of liberation from societal pressures. It’s the perfect anthem for nights out with friends or intimate solo concerts in your bedroom, embodying the Gen-Z spirit of authenticity and self-expression.
“I felt bogged down by the expectations of what kind of music I should be making as a young woman in Ghana. With this song, I just needed to shut out the noise and make what felt true to me. It’s the definition of “never let them know your next move” ” the young artist explains. With the expertise of Ghanaian producer, Insvne Auggie (99PHACES), her vision was brought to life.
This marks Anabel Rose’s second release, and she continues to defy musical conventions while satisfying her own curiosity for genre exploration. Her commitment to creating music that breaks free from the norm is evident in Do Not Disturb, a track that refuses to be confined by any one style.
Do Not Disturb is available for streaming on all major music platforms.
