An in-demand songwriter with credits for Kanye West, Justin Bieber, Usher, and many others under his belt, Verse Simmonds is an impressive artist in his own right, lending his compositions pathos with his golden-voiced tenor. Awakening at the harsh light of dawn with the hazy memories of a turbulent evening, Verse Simmonds wallows in regret in “Liquor & Misunderstanding,” his latest single. Singing over a hazy, barely-there instrumental that mimics the feeling of hitting the bottle a little too hard, Verse tells the tale of a fraught relationship and how alcohol can make things worse. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Premiered by ThisIsRnB, “Liquor & Misunderstanding” is the latest single from Verse’s Diamonds project, following “Murder Charge,” which features Ty Dolla $ign and already earned over 1.13 million plays on SoundCloud. Featuring an additional appearance from Ty Dolla $ign and production from The Honorable C.-N.O.T.E. and others, Diamonds, releasing November 10th, provides an essential cocktail of genre-bending, grown-and-sexy R&B.
Born in Puerto Rico and raised the US Virgin Islands, Verse is well-respected throughout the music world for his storytelling and craftsmanship. One of the industry’s most sought-after songwriters, Verse has penned hits for the likes of Chris Brown (“New Flame”) and Fifth Harmony (“Top Down”), and earned one of his five Grammy nominations for his writing on Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Who Gon Stop Me” in 2012. Last year, Verse earned a major hit with “Permission,” a Grammy-nominated R&B radio smash for Ro James. Later this year, Verse will appear as a featured artist on “Only 4 Me,” a track from the upcoming Chris Brown album Heartbreak on a Full Moon. Returning to the forefront as an artist after two years behind the scenes, Diamonds, released by his own VVS Society label, establishes Simmonds as a versatile and accomplished artist for fans of mature R&B.
