Rising Country Star Roman Alexander Finds ‘Closure’ With An Ex Over With New Song ‘Over Me’

*Adapted from Hollywood Life


After realizing that 'chasing his dream' was taking him further away from his relationship, country singer Roman Alexander wishes her well while closing the book on their romance in 'Over me.'


Heartache in country music usually comes in a few flavors. There are the songs of regret, sad tunes about letting the woman or man of your dreams slip through your fingers. There are the songs of bitterness, of anger towards the two-timing liar who stomped on your heart and done you wrong. Rarely does the genre approach the subject of love-loss from the maturity found within “Over Me,” the new song from rising star Roman Alexander. “Let your friends take you out / Get you drunk / On the town,” he sings at the start of the track. “Kiss a stranger / Cuz there ain’t no danger.” But, while this song might seem like it’s going in one direction, he shifts and takes you on a different path.

The song, Roman tells HollywoodLife, was his chance to bring some much-needed resolution to a romance that didn’t work out. “I wrote this song as a letter to my ex because I felt like it gave our relationship and myself some closure,” he says. “In the end, I just wanted her to be happy. And I knew that while I was chasing my dream of being an artist, I couldn’t give her what she needed and deserved from me.”

Roman has already shown the potential to be one of the brightest country stars of his generation. His debut song, “Cocktail Conversations,” arrived in 2020. Though the pandemic may have paused his ascent, he stayed busy building momentum over the next two years with “Between You & Me,” “Better In A Car,” and “Bad For Me.” These songs have set him up to be your next big favorite. While Roman isn’t what his ex needs after a drunk night on the town, county fans looking for an exciting new voice are ready for more from Mr. Alexander.
