“Simon Say” was produced by multi-Grammy Award winning and Producer of the Year nominated producers/songwriters The Stereotypes (Bruno Mars, Cardi B., Justin Bieber) who also co-wrote the song with Destiny Rogers, Flo Milli and Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Ant Clemons. On “Simon Say,” Destiny offers up a gorgeously understated anthem of empowerment. “One of the main messages I want to put out in my songs is the idea of being an independent woman and a boss bitch. ‘Simon Say’ is about knowing what you’re capable of, and never letting anyone hold you down” says Destiny.

“Simon Say” follows Destiny’s latest tracks “What I Like,” which was featured in Destiny’s Jordan Brand campaign, titled “Delta of Destiny” for the release of the Jordan Delta 2 shoe, and “West Like” featuring Kalan.FrFr on which Destiny pays loving homage to her West Coast and Latin roots.

Since first breaking through with her boldly confident but carefree single “Tomboy,” which has generated over 45 million views on YouTube (Watch HERE) and most recently covered by K-Pop super group Black Pink’s Lisa through a dance cover (Watch HERE)) that has generated over 70 million views,  Destiny Rogers has staked her claim as an artist to watch. Growing up in the Northern California town of Lodi, the 21-year-old multi-faceted musician taught herself to play guitar at age 10 and soon started writing and self-producing her own songs. Soon after the 2019 premiere of “Tomboy,” a track that recently hit #12 on Spotify’s Global Viral 50, Destiny’s spectacular rise has included touring the world and writing for heavy hitters such as Alicia Keys, Khelani and G-Eazy, all while discovering a new sound that transcends genres to irresistible effect.

Coi Leray, and linked up with Coi for a special TikTok to the song which was reposted on Instagram and praised by Kim Kardashian West.  In addition, K-Pop superstar B.I released his global single, “Got It Like That” featuring Destiny Rogers with Tyla Yaweh which debuted at #1 on Spotify’s K-Pop X-Overs chart and has generated over 4 million views on YouTube (Watch HERE).
