“Roses (Imanbek Remix)” was originally by Guyanese-American rapper SAINt JHN (Carlos St. John), and first appeared on his 2018 album “Collection One”, despite the original version being released in July 2016.
The Imanbek remix of “Roses” was made by 19-year-old Kazakh musician and producer Imanbek Zeykenov in July 2019, and was released as a single through Russian label Effective Records – but without SAINt JHN’s involvement. According to Imanbek, he tried to reach out to SAINt JHN via Instagram, but never received a response.
