Jena Rose’s “Manners” showcases vocal abilities galore while maintaining a simple message of true love.
The song holds a funky pop beat that synchronizes nicely with Rose’s vocal range, of which the lyrics add a groovy edge. The lyrics themselves are tried and true ones of prioritizing personality in a healthy relationship. The chorus booms into slight falsettos and the chant-like consistency of “Just show me your manners.” This line wraps up the tune accurately, the verses reflecting the same simple plea.
Rose’s singing abilities are truly on display in this track, and any listener can see the complexity that her voice brings to the delicate lyrical content. The instrumentation departs enough from the casual beats that usually accompany these types of vocals, adding a type of cleanness to the tone of the whole song.
At just 18 years old, Rose is headed down a successful path in the music industry, and one listen to her new track can back that up.
