featured song : Waitlisted
The story behind the song according to Emmrose “In all honesty, ‘Waitlisted’ was a really painful song for me to write, work on, and listen to. In March, I would find out whether or not I got into my dream school… The Clive Davis School of Recorded Music at NYU, the program is for songwriters, and I thought I was a shoe in. Long story short- I got waitlisted. It hurt me on a deep level because of the fact it was all about my music and my talent. I guess I wasn’t good enough to get in. Right? Oh maybe not. So writing an upbeat song was a fun contrast to an overall pretty sad song for me lyrically. I wanted it to be an anthem of a sort for people who’ve been in a similar situation; that you can find some kind of dark celebration in getting rejected.” - Emmrose
- Personally, I would have given Emmrose a full scholarship.
