Lily Rose is on the games of her ex in “I do not smoke”.
The rising singer knows that her former lover is not done with her, despite her best efforts to prove otherwise. But truth be told, Rose isn’t quite above them either, admitting to sneaking onto her ex’s Instagram where she picks up signs that her partner has passed on to someone new. .
But the feelings still seem to linger between them as Rose sings, “And I know I played saying / That I don’t want you yet / Me who doesn’t pick up my phone when it rings / It’s like saying I don’t smoke when I drink. “
“For me, ‘I Don’t Smoke’ is the perfect example of pop country. With the production, melody and lyrics all leaning towards the more recent country genre, ”Rose describes in a press release. The track was co-written by Breland, Lalo Guzman and Michael Tyler.
Rose catapulted herself onto the country scene in 2020 when her song “Villain” went viral on TikTok. She has since released follow-up songs “Better Than That”, “Green Light” and others.
“Whether it’s happiness, tears, empowerment, a feeling of being seen, of being heard … as long as we can reach as many people as possible and make them feel the way ‘Villain’ makes them feel or maybe the opposite impression of that, that’s the goal, “Rose had previously shared with Taste of Country.
The Georgia native is expected to open for Chris Lane on the Fill Them Boots tour, which begins October 28 in Memphis and ends March 12, 2022 in Pittsburgh.
