VMM’s New Rising Star: "Rouge" ready to take on 2016
You may know her as “The girl with the hair” or recognise her distinctive vocals from the 2015 Metro Fm Awards Nominated smash hit remix of AKA’s ‘Baddest’; one thing is for sure though, Rouge means business and is determined to make her mark on the Continental hip hop scene in a big way.
Following her recent success with the release of single ‘Bua’ which features Reason, Rouge has signed a 360 Management deal with VELTI Music Management (VMM) who have been instrumental in the management and launch of ‘North God’ in conjunction with the new Da L.E.S brand.
Rouge has high hopes for 2016, she’s been relatively quiet post- Baddest Remix in an effort to work on her music and fine-tune her personal brand – something that is widely overlooked in the industry today.
The up and comer’s mega talent combined with VMM’s unique take on management is certainly a recipe for great things in 2016.
“For me Rouge is the most exciting Female artist in South African Urban Music. With her ability to sing, rap and deliver both in two different languages Is unique in itself, but together with her natural confidence and drive this will give Rouge the ability to transcend English and French speaking Africa and then eventually penetrate the European and French-Canadian markets. Right now we are building the all-important framework whilst Rouge focuses on writing and making music.
We have a video in the works and some big announcements to come so watch this space” - Paul Veltman (VMM CEO)
