Sterling Simms Gets ‘Truthful,’ On Def Jam And Ex Girlfriend

R&B singer/songwriter Sterling Simms is coming clean and serving up the truth on his new album “Yours, Mine and The Truth” — he’s also setting the record straight on the direction of his repeatedly pushed back project, the record ‘Nasty Girl’ and the relationship that inspired his debut. “I didn’t think it was my best effort to give the people so I went back to the drawing board,” Simms says of his ill-fated project “Worth Your While”. “The “Worth Your While” album just didn’t feel like a complete album. It felt like something was always missing. I wanted to just go back and add more contrast to the album and more records. I went back with my group The Knightwritaz and did a couple more records then I got in with Tricky and Dream.” While the singer/songwriter, who penned Teairra Mari’s recent single “Built For This,” has pushed forward, renamed the album and cut new tracks he does admit “Nasty Girl,” a single released by Def Jam last year was not him. “I love “Nasty Girl.” It was a great record. I just felt like it wasn’t me. It didn’t capture my personality, my character and who Sterling Simms was,” Simms told Singersroom. With things looking up this time out, Sterling Simms hopes his project will be received for the labor of love that it is: “I put my heart into it. It just basically tells the story of a relationship that I’m not in anymore. It just gives my version and her version of what happened and then there’s the truth. ” For more on Sterling Simms, check out his interview with Singersroom where the “All I Need” singer talks relationships, his current love life and also tells you why “Yours, Mine and The Truth” is the perfect stocking stuffer !
