Returning from a two-year hiatus as the anticipation for his long-awaited and highly anticipated third mixtape continues to intensify, UK rapper, songwriter and producer CHRIS BUDDEN is back with ‘Confessions’ – a glorious melodic rap track in his trademark ‘Trap Rockstar’ style, which sees the East London native in captivating introspective mode as he opens up about all the things that he feels he can only get off his chest through the music. The track was written by Budden and co-produced with Cee Figz, who has also worked with the likes of Popcaan, Wretch 32 and Fredo.
Whether it’s dealing with heartbreak and past relationships, or battling with addictive behaviour, or remembering his friend that he lost due to knife crime when he was only 14, or navigating the music industry, Chris Budden bares it all on his new single .
Speaking about ‘Confessions’, Chris Budden says, “The song ‘Confessions’ is me admitting to my wrongs, but still being too numb to them to change my bad habits. It’s like I’m going on a guilt trip, but still too proud to apologise. For the ‘Confessions’ video, it was set in a mansion, and if you notice, there’s not that many close angle shots as I like to have a mysterious slant to what I do. With this video, I want the viewer to feel my pain, but at the same time, go on a party trip with me”.
Since making his debut on UK rap icon Yungen’s 2016 single ‘Every Night Late Night’, Chris Budden has been on an upward trajectory with his unique ‘Trap Rockstar’ style that mixes his UK rap foundation with sensibilities from Atlanta’s rich hip-hop landscape that has inspired him over the years. With two mixtapes Wudnt Be and 13:33, over 40 songs, and co-signs from the likes of Tim Westwood, Wretch 32 and Wiz Khalifa under his belt, Chris Budden has been hard at work with producer Cee Figz on his upcoming comeback project, led by new single ‘Confessions’.
