MP3: Verse Simmonds – “All I Want ” ft. Jeremih (Prod. by J Hill)
Premiered by Billboard, the Atlanta-based Artist Teams Up With Jeremih For Infectious Track From His Forthcoming Sex Tapes Chronicles 3 Album
Virgin Islands-born singer/songwriter Verse Simmonds and Jeremih take the mic on their latest collaboration, “All I Want,” which premiered via Billboard. The infectious track has the two singers laying down seductive lyrics over a remixed sample of “The Cha Cha Slide.” “When I heard the track, I asked Jeremih to come by the studio that I was working at in LA at the time and he pulled up on me and laid his verse on it,” Verse Simmonds explained to Billboard. “That’s usually how our session go, very random. One of us just calls the other and if we’re ever in the same area we just pull up and get it in!” “All I Want” is the second single from Verse Simmonds’ Sextape Chronicles 3 album, which will release later this year.
The Atlanta-based artist’s work with Jeremih dates back a few years. “The first song we worked on was ‘Can’t Go No Mo,'” says Verse Simmonds. He and Jeremih co-wrote the track, which released late last year on Jeremih’s N.O.M.A. mixtape. “Since then we have worked together many times and it’s kind of effortless when we are both working together. He’s someone I really respect in this game because he’s super humble and very talented.” Verse Simmonds previously released the first single from Sextape Chronicles 3, “Situationships,” calling out the lack of genuine relationships in today’s world. “‘Situationships’ is an honest perspective on a lot of relationships today,” he 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.”
An acclaimed songwriter, Verse Simmonds is a go-to writer for Chris Brown, most notably contributing to his songs “New Flame” and “Drunk Texting,” in addition to songs Brown is featured on including Kid Ink‘s “Hotel” and T.I.‘s “Private Show.” Simmonds is also credited as a writer on K. Michelle‘s “Hard To Do” and Fifth Harmony‘s “Top Down.” The multi-faceted artist is making his way to the forefront with his Sextape Chronicles 3 album, which is slated to release later in 2015.
