Rozes Really Smell Like Truth: From The Chainsmokers to 'Under the Grave,' It's All About Honesty

FUSE TV - Rozes Really Smell Like Truth: From The Chainsmokers to 'Under the Grave,' It's All About Honesty

Type "roses" into Google, and the first result you get isn't the voluptuous botanical blossom of romantic lore. You get "Roses," a song written by electro duo The Chainsmokers and their eponymous friend Rozes, a.k.a. Liz Mencel. The flower is now second in fame to a song with an undeniable drop and hundreds of millions of spins since its June 2015 release.

And while "Roses" has shot The Chainsmokers' career past Jupiter, as far as stardom goes, it was the song that convinced Rozes that she could have a career at all.

"It took the song with The Chainsmokers to realize I could have a following," Mencel tells me on a bench in New York's Union Square Park, hours before her show at Irving Plaza that night. "When I wrote with them, that song, it was like people actually understood what I was saying, and they liked what I was saying, and they liked how I was saying it. OK, I can do this, kind of thing."
