Our very own Richard once said he believes that Verse is an r&b robot whose only mission it to sing about sex, and after listening to his latest offering Pretty Girls - making its premiere right here on the Booth - I’m hard pressed to disagree. Seemingly undaunted both by the fact that Wale just dropped a single with the same name and his guest artist OJ da Juiceman (a.k.a. the poor man’s Gucci Mane) was widely panned on Verse’s last track Buy You a Round (Remix), Verse heads right back into the fray with a pop-oriented cut featuring bouncing, Dream-eqsue production from Sham of The Jugganauts, silky smooth, island-tinged vocals and a barely listenable lyrical contribution from OJ (I’m sorry to keep picking on the man but it’s true). Just once I’d like to see an artist make a song for the ugly girls. Pretty Girls is off Verse’s apparently aptly-titled upcoming album Stories of a Bachelor, due out in the summer of 2010.
