After hooking up with Liam Payne for 'Naughty List' at the end of October and Wiz Khalifa on 'One Whole Day' at the beginning of December, Dixie D'Amelio delivered a present of her very own on Christmas Day with her new single, 'Roommates'. The reflective pop song explores Dixie D'Amelio's insecurities and anxieties, with the video also touching on how that is fuelled by negativity from her detractors.
D'Amelio sings of her inner voices, her roommates as she calls them, how they are a constant and how she somehow has to manage them to help her get through the day. It's as much about confronting her mental well being as acknowledging her struggle. In the video that accompanies the song Dixie is seen at a black and white graffiti wall that has been created using words and phrases found in her social media comments sections. Examples used include, "Facetoon", "Famous bc of ur sis" and "Buttchin" (Changed by Dixie to I love my chin), it's like you're reading elementary school Beavis and Butt-Head!
Dixie flips the hate in the song by manipulating the wall, explaining in 'the making of video' that "I'm spray painting good things over all of these bad, real hate comments that they (The video film producers) took from my comments sections"
Dixie D'Amelio takes direction throughout the shoot, at one point being asked to adopt a foetal position and look tortured. This was probably more sincere than you realise when she later says that she had "a migraine all day" and that the tears were real".
The song is not withdrawn but considered, has a lightness and subtlety to it that lets Dixie sing her song and convey her message without it getting lost in the production. She's laying herself bare and giving us an insight, "I try to be patient, take medication, So I can feel alright, But that voice in my head, seems like it's obsessed".
