Virgin Islands-born, Atlanta-based singer/songwriter/producer Verse Simmonds is calling out the lack of genuine relationships in today’s world with “Situationships,” the first single from his forthcoming The Sextape Chronicles 3 album. Speaking to his “number one about making their own rules, Verse explores stigmas and guidelines that are oft placed on what a relationship is supposed to be, while alternative lifestyles can affect the type of relationships that a person desires and experiences. Co-produced by Grammy-winning producer Needlz and Donut, an ethereal ambiance sits behind pulsating percussion and a reverberating vocal. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump.
“‘Situationships’ is an honest perspective on a lot of relationships today,” Verse told Complex in their premiere post. “I think being in a ‘Situationship’ instead of being in a full blown relationship for some might allow both parties to be more open about their intentions. It’s the realist shit I’ve ever wrote. When people hear it, it makes them think about their situations because it’s so relatable and relevant. I love the video because it’s simple and focuses on the music and doesn’t distract from the message being conveyed. I took a walk through a lot of today’s relationships.”
As Chris Brown‘s go-to songwriter, Verse Simmonds holds an extensive track record as a writer and producer, with credits that include songs for R. Kelly and Rihanna, as well as Justin Bieber‘s“Confident.” Verse previously stepped into the spotlight with Kelly Rowland on their steamy single “Boo Thang,” which is from his The Sextape Chronicles 2 mixtape. The multi-faceted artist is back to make his songwriting and soaring vocals heard with Sex Tapes Chronicles 3 slated to release later this year.
