Ahead of the release of her eagerly-awaited debut album, Los Angeles-based pop artist Destiny Rogers follows up her exciting lead single, “Save My Love”, with an intimate Mikey Robbins-directed visual accompanying the track. The video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live and MTVU and is out now via Human ReSources/The Orchard.
“Save My Love is about me exploring these really intense feelings that I had for someone,” shares Destiny Rogers on her latest song. “They were so intense that I knew it wasn’t like any other crush or just someone I was interested in – it was love. And so this song is about allowing myself to feel this and explore these feelings with this person. And then realizing that this whole time, I was saving my love for her. This moment is special to me because it’s about the first time I really opened up my heart to a girl and let myself feel everything that came with it.”
This sentiment bleeds through in the compelling visual, offering a candid window into Destiny’s own expression of love that she has hidden for so long. The video bravely frames intimate moments in ways Destiny hasn’t done before. “Save My Love” marks a pivotal moment in Destiny’s artistry, where she has proudly come to peace with who she is and previews her intent to delve deeper into her own authentic story via her highly-anticipated forthcoming debut album.
Produced by frequent collaborators, the GRAMMY Award-winning songwriting/production duo The Stereotypes (Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey), “Save My Love” is a raw and heartfelt song that delves into the depths of moving on from a first love. With Rogers’ soulful pop vocals taking center stage, the track sets the tone for what promises to be a must-listen debut from the Mexican-American powerhouse. The track’s initial release resonated immensely with fans and across the media landscape, with coverage by outlets ranging from Rolling Stone to Glasse Facotry, among others, setting the tone for the force that is Destiny Rogers.

About Destiny Rogers
24-year-old Mexican-American pop singer-songwriter Destiny Rogers was fueled by a dream of making music that would take her far beyond Lodi, the tiny Northern California town where she was born. Raised by a father who played rock and roll, a Mexican mother who sang corridos, and an older sister who loved 2000’s hip-hop and R&B – Destiny was surrounded by a world of music. At home, she was playing guitar and recording covers on YouTube, and at church, she was performing in the worship band. With this, Destiny was shaped into the singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist that we see today.
At 17, Destiny connected with Grammy-Award-winning songwriter/production team The Stereotypes (Bruno Mars, Justin Bieber, Mariah Carey) and in 2018 signed to their label, Beach Wave Sound. The collaboration has since resulted in Destiny’s R&B and hip-hop inflected pop sound, most definitely heard through her viral debut hit song, “Tomboy”, which received a remix with Coi Leray and has amassed 200 million combined audio and video streams worldwide, peaking at #12 on the Spotify Viral 50 Global Chart. In May 2021, Rogers released a single and music video titled “West Like” featuring Kalan.FrFr and the collaborative track “Got It Like That” with B.I and Tyla Yaweh. Rogers has written for numerous acts, including TWICE, Nayeon, and Le Sserafim, and has performed at Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival, South by Southwest, and on tour with Ruel. Along the way, her music has been praised by Billboard, Rolling Stone, Complex, Genius, V Magazine, Nylon, Ones To Watch, and more.
In 2022, Destiny opened up about her sexuality with Rolling Stone and how she learned to love herself regardless of pushback from her family and ending her first relationship with a girl in secret. With this story at the root of her upcoming debut album, Destiny is ready to show the world her most honest and intentional music, and in a sonic space, more evolved than fans have ever heard from her.
