GRAMMY® Award Winning Producer / Rapper, and SossHouse CEO, Pi’erre Bourne returns with “Honeyberry 2,” the long-awaited sequel to his 2017 fan-favorite hit “Honeyberry.” Like the original–an early document of Pi’erre’s melodic mastery behind the mic and boards–”Honeyberry 2″ is an impassioned case against catching feelings, complete with carnivalesque synths and candy-coated counter melodies. Detailing his feelings about a complicated relationship, Pi’erre uses languid melody and hypnotic repetition to drop some memorable quotes: “Say she in love but I know she lyin’/Say she want love but she’ll end up cryin’.”
“Honeyberry 2” is the latest fan-favorite Pi’erre Bourne snippet to see release in recent weeks, following the February release of “IG.” “Honeyberry 2” and “IG” are the latest salvos in what’s shaping up to be a busy year for the SossHouse Founder and CEO.
