“Summer & Simone”
The feeling I get from this song is amazing. A feeling of love, belonging, family and stability. This song went through a few processes. It was going to be completely different in the beginning. Just dealing with “Simone”, so to speak.
I had heard these 3 beats and placed them where I felt was appropriate for the story. I wanted to create the opposite spectrum from “Cold and Frigid”. The beat that resonated with me the most was part 3 of the song, where I speak about both Summer and Simone.
Part 1 had more of the story element put in there and more of a “rapper flow”. @cherellenightbreed
once again, dealt some incredible background vocals throughout this track. Made it 10x more beautiful. The 2nd part, about Summer, was a quick piece I didn’t want to delve to long in. The sort of airy beat and horns had a good feel to it and to me, made that part of the song more dream like.
The final part of the song is my favorite simply cus it has so much smooth soul to it. The flow of the beat and lyrics makes me wanna dance all the time. I never thought I could put together a song like this. Writing the lyrics to the flow and melody of the beat was a little hard at first, but once I got it, it was a hit. ~
I wrote this song in hopes that a love like this, that I define, will happen. In due time. I was supposed to have actors fill in the role of my Simone and Summer but timing and confusion had those links fall apart. I definitely want to name my daughter Summer. My mother told me, if I was a girl, she would’ve named me that. Still would’ve kept up w/ my initials too. ~
My favorite line from the entire song, “my Summer and Simone/that’s a product of my home/them girls keep my faith strong/I could never feel alone”. No Sweat Pimp is out now! Link in my bio 🚫💦
