Papi Versace is an artist from Atlantic City, New Jersey, with a refined sound that he classifies as being “energy,” whether that be upbeat energy or a “sad energy,” Papi Versace’s music offers a sense of introspection that resonates with the audience.
Papi Versace, has proven his dedication to music as he crafts his sound, as seen in his latest release, “Commitment,” which although, fits his sound and discography, is a result of him “want[ing] to do something different instead of a typical club or twerk song, so [he] decided to do a slow record.” The by-product is a soulful narrative about the theme of commitment.
“Energy is a great word that I like to use when describing my music to new listeners because although it may be a more chill or bringing or even sad energy that I bring to each song my goal is to move the listener enough to make them a fan,” Papi Versace says.
The track is reminiscent of 6lack’s nonchalant slowed-down cadence yet features that “energy” we have come to expect from Papi Versace, featuring an introspective Papi as he sets the mood and glides over the song, delivering smooth vocals that create the perfect vibe for being in your feelings or wanting to smoke and zone out.
Papi Versace’s “Commitment” sets the right tone for any occasion. With influences like The Weeknd, Asher, Michael Jackson, Chris Brown, and Drake, it is clear where Papi picks up that mesmerizing cadence and flow, studying the greats and refining his sound, and setting the tone for what is to come shortly. His new track “Commitment” is the first follow-up since his 2020 EP Visions and the first single for his upcoming project, Visions II. Yet, the biggest takeaway he wants his fans to know is that his forthcoming project will be new and exciting.
“I want people to see who I am as an artist through my next album,” he says. “My first album was just to prove I could do it, but this second project is full of emotion and grit.”
Visions II, set to release in March 2022, and if it is anything like we have heard from his last project and his most recent release, “Commitment,” we can only expect a refined sound and introspective tracks, as Visions II will be one of the must listen to projects of 2022.
