NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Sep 4, 2015) - Atlantic recording artist Diggy Simmons has announced today's release of his much-anticipated new single. "Fakin'" is available now at all DSPs http://smarturl.it/Fakin.

"Fakin'" heralds Diggy's as-yet-untitled new project, set to arrive later this year.

Meanwhile, Simmons is set to star in the upcoming BET film, The Start Up. In The Start Up, hip-hop prince Diggy Simmons stars as Blake Monroe, founder of TheJetsetters.com, an entertainment and lifestyle blog. The Start Up hones in on what it means to be young, gifted and digital, as Blake and his friends strategize for fame and financing while they navigate the freedoms and pressures of adulthood.

The Start Up premieres September 19th (check local listings).

Diggy Simmons emerged in 2009 with his debut project, "FIRST FLIGHT," igniting an industry frenzy that ultimately led to his joining the historic Atlantic Records roster. The multi-talented rapper/actor/performer was soon named among Billboard's "Artists To Watch" while also ranking among XXL's hugely influential "Top 10 Freshmen" list. 2012 saw the release of Diggy's acclaimed debut album, "UNEXPECTED ARRIVAL," highlighted by such hip-hop hit singles as "Copy, Paste" and "Do It Like You (Feat. Jeremih)." Further honors followed, including the BET Awards' "YoungStars Award" and the NAACP Image Awards' "Outstanding New Artist."

"My Girl (Feat. Trevor Jackson)" dropped in 2014, its companion video drawing total views now approaching 2.5 million at www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkKmroRfi0c. 2015 has already seen a number of new track releases, including "Ain't Bout To Do It (Feat. French Montana)," which is streaming now at Diggy's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/user/diggysimmons.

Simmons has spent much of the past half-decade on the road, including countless headline dates, promo tours like 2014's smash "Who Else But Us" alongside fellow Atlantic recording artist Trevor Jackson, and starring roles on a series of hugely successful package tours presented by Scream Nation and Scream Star Entertainment.
