Pop recording artist Rozzi chatted with Digital Journal's Markos Papadatos about "Best Friend Song," her music inspirations, and she offered advice for young and aspiring singers.

Regarding her new single "Best Friend Song," she said, "I wrote it the day my best friend Tatti moved out of our apartment. We lived together for years and when she left, it felt like the end of an era. I was sad but I didn’t want to write a sad song so I wrote something funny instead. I never thought I'd release it, it was just for us."

Regarding her music inspirations, she said, "My life inspires me. I write very personal songs. Sometimes I wish I didn’t because, when they come out, I feel kind of exposed. But it’s the only way I know how to do it. My hope is that I’m doing for someone what my heroes have done for me. When you hear Stevie Nicks or Alanis Morrisette or Beyoncé be so fearless with their lyrics, it makes you feel less alone."

“It started as a tribute to my friendship with Tatti, and to make her laugh ,” she explains. “We lived together for so many years, through college and beyond, but she was moving in with her boyfriend, so I was sad. It was the end of an era. I didn’t want to write a weepy song though. I wanted to do something fun, and never for a moment imagined it would end up being released as my first single. Every line is an inside joke. I didn’t think anyone else would hear it, which is when I often write my best songs. I sang it to embarrass her at a New York show. It’s probably the truest love song I’ve ever written. Tatti was like, ‘It’s gonna be your big hit, because I’m the only one you ever really loved!’ There might be some truth to the second part!”
