Sentimental in both its lyrical content and sonic style, “Do you?” produced prod by Pdub The Producer, is the latest offering from Oakland, California singer Simone Telease, taken from her new 7-track album titled ‘Love hard’.
Simone offers up the honeyed track just in time for cuffing season, sumptuously weaving her luxurious vocals into an intricate and refined R&B soundscape allowing for her celestial harmonies to cushion her every word.
“This song is a tale of best friends turned lovers gone wrong. When I first began this project, I flew back home to Oakland, California. I was hoping to draw inspiration from this man I was madly in love with. This project was supposed to come from a good place. We were best friends turned lovers, and I just knew he would be my happily ever after.
We literally had been close friends since high school. He took me to my very first prom, and I had my very first slow dance with him. There was a lot of history there. A couple months later after I returned back to Atlanta, he ended up ripping my heart to shreds when He ghosted me and got a girlfriend. He didn’t even have the nerve to tell me, I had to find out through social media, and that’s what really broke my heart. So I texted him and told him goodbye forever and that at this point, we cant even be friends anymore..but, as much as I hate to say it, I still miss him, and I guess he will always have a special place in my heart.” Simone explains.
