“Roses” is a song by Guyanese-American rapper Saint Jhn, originally released on July 22, 2016 and later included on his 2018 album Collection One. It was then remixed by Kazakh producer Imanbek and released as a single on September 18, 2019. The remix of the song is higher pitched and helped the song gain international recognition after it was featured on a Snapchat filter and on video-sharing app TikTok where it received over 4.5 billion plays in the month of April 2020. On May 27, 2020, a second remix was released with American rapper Future. A music video was going to be produced for the second remix, but it was cancelled, and John donated $125,000 of the music video’s budget to bail funds from arrested protesters, black-owned businesses, and the Black Lives Matter movement, all regarding the George Floyd protests that started in May 2020.
