Kali Uchis is letting go of people.
Kali Uchis has returned, and everything looks good from where she stands. The Columbian-American singer, whose last album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios), was released in 2020, stayed relatively quiet last year, though she did release a few standalone singles like "NO HAY LEY" and the Minions: The Rise of Gru soundtrack cut "Desafinado."
Now, she's back in the new year with "I Wish You Roses," an atmospheric slow jam that's already charting in the Top 10 on Genius.
Josh Crocker and Dylan Wiggins produced "I Wish You Roses," which they also co-wrote with Uchis. Lyrically, the song is about letting go of people in your life without holding grudges.
“This song is about being able to release people with love,” Uchis explained in a statement. “It could be a friend, a lover, or someone else, but the point is to celebrate releasing people from your life without being resentful or bitter.”
"I Wish You Roses" was released alongside an official music video directed by Cho Gi-Seok in South Korea, which was filled with hypnotic floral imagery.
