Acclaimed Producer Germono Toussaint Releases 

Brand New Single on February 14th

(New York, NY, February 9, 2022): Dynamic composer, arranger, and producer Germono Toussaint is set to release his next single, “Love Overdue” on Monday, February 14th, Valentine’s Day. “Love Overdue” includes vocals from singer and stage actress Arissa. “Love Overdue” is Toussaint’s first new single following the release of his acclaimed debut album Brown Liquor and Blessed Oil last summer. 

Toussaint wrote, “Love Overdue” for Love’s Gonna Get You, an award-winning play by James and Michele Woodson. Love’s Gonna Get You, which features Arissa, is based on the story of eight singles and their passionate search for true love. “Love Overdue,” a gospel-tinged R&B ballad, is sung by Dorsey in a scene where the main character is praying for the love of her life to finally appear. With this single, Toussaint is testing the waters for a full album that follows his own personal love journey. 

Toussaint met Dorsey, a Baltimore native who has been singing and acting since childhood, in the early 2010s and promised the budding artist that he would record with her one day. Nearly a decade later, the two reconnected in Baltimore and recorded the single in one day.

“It’s not the type of show that I usually write for, but the music is fire and I really wanted to work with Arissa, an amazing vocalist,” says Toussaint. “Everyone needs, wants, and deserves love. Being in love is something almost everyone can relate to. This song is about longing for true love – not a distraction, illusion, or infatuation. It’s about seeking the person whose love can heal and transport you to a better version of yourself.” 

In addition to working with Arissa, Toussaint is also producing a house music track for P-Valley star Harriet D. Foy later this year. 

“Love Overdue” will be released on all music platforms on Monday, February 14th.
