The father and son’s collaboration is an edgy, vibrant Dancehall, Pop and Reggae crossover hybrid.
Krishane revealed to Hype Life Magazine that they came up with the idea of the single from his father’s 1983 classic, “Black Roses,” during a WhatsApp video call in the studio.
The 23-year-old singer said he had an interesting new visual for it and decided to do “a revamp mainly on the chorus to shed a new light and depiction,” with production by British based producer Delirious.

Krishane also explained the making of the “Roses,” while comparing track to it’s inspirational record.
“‘Black Roses’ by Barrington Levy was a song empowering black beauty and respecting it. As a man or woman, in their eyes, this should be an innate thing to look after beautiful black women lady,” Krishane said.
“I did that because I wanted to not just bend the mind of perception but show the world relativity of the term Black Roses not being interpreted as something to do with race,” he expressed.
“As you would be wondering, “Roses” doesn’t sound much or have anything from “Black Roses” on there! Well that’s the point of it. Not to rip from it production wise but to twist the concept and perception,” he elaborated.

He also explained that the song is all about romance and appreciation.
“I’ve done it this way to show something that a lot if not, every woman would love to see. A lot of guys should sit back and listen. The track starts from a morning plot, my lady gets up and she is running late for work which causes her to be rushing and panicking a bit. As a man I want to put her at ease. So I let her know that it’s fine calm her down a bit ‘take your time don’t worry about the extra work in the house.’ I’ll take care of that for you. She just go get a shower while I have the breakfast ready and the house cleaned up,” he explained.
“By doing that you’re letting her feel comfortable and keeping her day stress free as much as possible and letting her know you appreciate and support her. That ensures you got a keeper for sure !! Sounds romantic and deep still but it’s all apart of the human nature,” he added.
