R&B/hip hop artist & actor Rosehardt (Caleb Eberhardt) releases his new single “Sum Good” and accompanying video today. Co-produced by Dominic Missana and Rosehardt, the relaxed piano-driven “Sum Good” is a Sunday morning love song about waking up and slowly starting your day with someone you love.
In the video for “Sum Good”, we witness a day in the life of Rosehardt & his cat, Ishmael. With a clearly established & recognizable power dynamic, Rosehardt (dressed as a modern-day butler) laboriously goes through the motions of worshipping his feline. With explicit lyrics serving as cheeky double-entendres, the visual accompaniment to “Sum Good” is both hilarious & relatable, while making you feel sexy all at the same time.
Rosehardt says, “I think this a solid a collaboration between me and Dominic that’s been a long time coming. After Songs in the Key of Solitude, it just felt good to make something bright. I guess the moral of the song is to not be afraid to serve your lady. Give in to hot girl summer—they’re winning.”
His debut album, Songs in the Key of Solitude, has received over 1 million streams, and Rosehardt performed sold out shows in multiple cities while promoting that album. Additionally, his powerful May 2018 “COLORS Berlin” performance is nearing 1 million plays on YouTube. Also, soon to be released is Los Angeles based DJ & producer TOKiMONSTA’s remix of Rosehardt’s May 2019 single “High Hopes.”
Praise for Rosehardt:
“Beautiful, bleak sounds from a multi-talented artist.” – Pigeons & Planes
“What begins as anonymous summer funk pop with breathy singing slowly morphs into a Daft Punk-like symphony of bass warbles and synth flares, peaking with a cathartic climax that finds Rosehardt unleashing his full vocal power.” – Pitchfork
“Able to carry the weight of [a] song like a melodic Hercules, Rosehardt’s nimble ability to switch between sung and rapped vocals works perfectly…” – Okayplayer
“…he’ll be a name that pops up time and again as we move into 2019’s essential rising rappers.” – Highsnobiety
Rosehardt made his Broadway debut this past Spring in Choir Boy, the groundbreaking new play by Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight).
