Verse Simmonds – In My Feelings – Produced By Supa Dups
Above all, the dancehall-inspired R&B anthem has been the defining sound of Summer ’16. This isn’t a new sound to ATL-based singer Verse Simmonds, who was raised in the Virgin Islands. For his new single, “In My Feelings,” Simmonds has teamed up with the Miami-based Jamaican producer/DJ Supa Dups, the founder of the legendary Black Chiney sound system. The result is one of the most seamless island fusion experiments that you’re likely to hear on the airwaves this summer.
Over the past few months, Simmonds has shown off his ability to dabble in all kinds of sounds, such as illicit, club-focused R&B as well as the more traditional, soulful side of the genre. Whether it be lust or romance, the expression of his feelings always feels authentic, and that stays true with his new foray into the island sound. His vocals flow smoothly across Supa Dup’s uptempo but decidedly pensive riddim, resulting in an easy-riding party track that’s also packed with readily relatable emotion. “In My Feelings” is the latest track off Simmonds’ upcoming album, To All the Girls.
Proudly debuting their third studio album “Everlasting” at #2 on the Reggae billboard charts, Raging Fyah took their musical message on the road to give thanks to fans and music lovers.
In July 2016, the self contained reggae band embarked on their 2016 Everlasting US Tour that took them from Washington DC, Boston, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Nebraska, Minnesota, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada to California. Along the way Raging Fyah amassed a legion of new fans and Everlasting memories.
Their tour message was simple and uplifiting, “We try to show reality, but in a very positive way. Hope of a better tomorrow is important to all of us. They’re messages to keep us all grounded, but to push ahead too. We’re optimistic and we want to communicate that to uplift people and make them feel better about the world.”
Received to rave reviews, Raging Fyah amassed a legion of new fans along their way. “The culturally and generationally diverse crowd swayed to the familiar rhythms and themes of Raging Fyah’s roots reggae and were wooed by the commanding, and impressive, vocals of their lead singer. The band, as a whole, demonstrated first-class musicianship, sticking mostly to traditional reggae themes, incorporating the occasional dancehall synth effects for a few numbers. Throughout their set, Kumar invoked the magic of reggae music to connect with the audience.” – Derrick Lee for Blurred Culture
“The chemistry between band members and their individual connection to each song jolted out of their bodies throughout the night. Raging Fyah is a solid band of skillful musicians who feed off the crowd’s energy and seamlessly tailor the show to this give and take.” – Juliana Leal for ReggaeReflection
Speaking of the tour, the band truly humbled by the reception expressed their gratitude “We are thankful and blessed to be able to do and share what we love with the world. As much as we give to each show, the crowds gives back to us and we do not take that for granted. Thanks to the most high and to everyone who came to see us. Love is Everlasting“.
