Vershon x Chip – Reality | New Video/Single
Wildly talented, heavily streamed, yet still in the throes of international discovery, Jamaica’s musical sensation Vershon releases new single “Reality” featuring the UK’s front runner in Rap, North London’s finest Chip.
Vershon made his first chink in the armour of global breakthrough with his hit single “Inna Real Life”. The release of his forthcoming “Only One” EP, which also features Trillary Banks and Busy Signal, is set to bridge the gap between Jamaica and the UK. Taken from “Only One” and produced by award-winning British trio The Fanatix, responsible for cuts with the likes of Nicki Minaj, Popcaan, Vybz Kartel, Giggs and Stylo G, the genuine Caribbean vibes run to the very roots of “Reality”.
Having previously released the bold and gritty “Original”, “Reality” offers an insight in to the lyrical dexterity and musical diversity of Vershon, demonstrating that he’s equally as skilled at hitting out hard bars with a livewire spark as he is at articulating tender moments and emotion.
Featuring a delicate pulsating key synth and serene bird-like calls, the stripped back introduction puts a spotlight on to Vershon as he confidently takes the stage, lyrically caressing the track with tangible lyricism before the deep tremble of bass begins to stir. Although raised in London, Chip’s Jamaican roots have always maintained a strong influence over his music and whilst he is a master at skipping rings around any beat and barring with the best, his inclusion on “Reality” highlights the capabilities of the duo and their ability to command an exhilarating record.
