Gayes! If you're anything like us then you can't get enough of R&B singer Durand Bernarr. If you’re looking for more. Listen up! Bernarr and Spotify are teaming up for two new exclusive singles.

On one of the singles, Bernarr re-imagines his hit song song “Leveled,” which was originally released as a single off of his Wanderlust album. The second track is titled “KFAR,” and works as the cover of Seal’s beloved 1994 song, “Kiss From a Rose.”

Bernarr expressed excitement in covering the song in a statement, "When my father gave me Seal's eponymous second album at 10 years old, I knew I wanted to create something similar at some point in my life.” he said.

He continued saying,” Revisiting the album as an adult evokes the same childhood thought, but I feel the lyrics more now. Honestly, the way he expresses love, life, loss, and gratitude in his stories makes me weep. That raw emotion gave me the push to approach "Kiss From a Rose" in a way I wouldn't have been able to before experiencing my own trials in life. It's a song that I hadn't sung before and I wanted to showcase a different dynamic with my art. I hope my cousins enjoy it!"

The release of these singles serves as the final installment in a series of singles from artists featured on Spotify’s R&B Rising playlist, a playlist dedicated to shining a spotlight on emerging R&B talent.

Since debuting at #1 on the Apple Music R&B charts, with his self-titled album DUR& in 2020, Bernarr has utilized his viral personality to usher in listeners with his playful melodies, and mesmerizing falsetto notes.

In 2021 he followed up the release of his debut album with his sophomore set “Wanderlust” for which he embarked on, "The Wanderlust Tour".
