Singer-songwriter Rosie Valland is back with a brand new single titled “Attiser le dilemme.” This assertive pop song pays tribute to the women of the #MeToo movement. The track is available now on all streaming platforms. Her third LP will be released in 2022. 

“The last few years brought numerous social issues back to the forefront. Every one of them affected me in various ways, including the #MeToo movement,” says Rosie. “Reading hundreds of testimonies of all kinds from these brave women helped me to realize that I’ve experienced several problematic situations in my own life. I used to find excuses for these things because, as women, we’re conditioned to think that we’re to blame when something happens. With this song, I wanted to highlight the strength that these women, these queens gave me by speaking out.” 

Jérôme Beaulieu (keys), Émile Farley (bass), Mélissa Lavergne (percussions) and Caroline Planté (guitar) brilliantly play with Rosie on this groovy single, which she co-produced with Frédéric Levac. Mike Clay (Clay & Friends) contributed to the beat-making arrangements. 

The accompanying video is co-directed by Rosie Valland and Lawrence Fafard 

“We wanted to find a simple way to depict ‘unease,’ while still conveying a certain strength and resilience. When Lawrence came up with this concept, I found the image very evocative. This is a potent metaphor for the feelings that I criticize in the song.”
