Destiny Rogers’ first foray into music earlier this year was palpable. With the release of her debut single, “Tomboy,” Rogers became a bubbling figure in the rising artist scene overnight. Yet, what was arguably felt to a wider degree was not how fast Rogers hit a million streams, but the way in which fans and critics alike gravitated towards her music. From the music video for “Tomboy” being played on MTV at the top of the hour every hour, to notable co-signs from the likes of Billie Eilish and Alessia Cara, Rogers’ debut was the sort any artist could dream of.
With such a noteworthy start, it is easy to imagine Rogers as the sort of carefully put-together, meticulously-groomed major label priority. Yet, in spite of the deluge of support that has flooded in for her debut single and the release of the titular EP, there is an undeniable authenticity to Rogers, who seems to be as amazed by her sudden hurdle into the limelight as anybody else.
