Getting a verse to lead naturally to a chorus requires you to know the crucial differences between those two. But describing what those essential differences are can be tricky. So what are the crucial differences between the two? Chorus melodies use repetition to a greater degree.

If your goal is to write something that will have an arena full of people waving their arms and singing along.
