Single: Verse Simmonds – “Liquor & Misunderstanding”

The In-Demand Singer-Songwriter Shares the Latest Woozy Single from Forthcoming Diamonds Project, Releasing November 10th


The Song:

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. 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.

He has worked with Jay-Z and Kanye on the Watch The Throne album, receiving a Grammy nomination because of that. He has also been called on by Justin Bieber, R. Kelly, Chris Brown, Young Jeezy, TLC, and numerous others. “My goal is to be remembered as the one who gave 100%. I want my music and anything I touch to resonate forever. It is my desire to take people back to a time, or evoke forgotten emotions, when they hear my music, because it’s so raw, honest, and real. I simply want to go in the books as one of the greatest,” is how he describes what he envisions his legacy to be. With his hands in a little bit of everything, from behind the scenes to front and center on stage, his impact will be felt all over.
