Brit-nominated rap duo Young T & Bugsey return with introspective new single and video “Blessings”, featuring Chronixx. Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?
“Blessings” follows in the wake of November offering “Roberto C” featuring fellow rapper Unknown T. The new single is fueled by a stripped back beat that the pair ride effortlessly, this time assisted by the enticing sounds of Jamaican singer and songwriter, Chronixx. Young T & Bugsey’s signature genre-infusing delivery, paired with Chronixx’s captivating vocals, couple up to create a track that flawlessly celebrates the pair’s African and Caribbean heritage. The new single lands with a poignant lyric video that sees touching memorabilia of Young T & Bugsey’s childhood and loved ones.
It comes just weeks before the release of Young T & Bugsey’s brand new mixtape ‘Truth Be Told’, set for release on Friday 21st January 2022 via Black Butter Records. The new project follows colossal debut Plead The 5th, which boasts over 1bn+ Global Streams and is home to some of the pair’s biggest singles to date. Featuring 2021 offering’s Big Bidness and Prada Bae, the tape includes 15 songs which all display the pair’s commitment to their sound knowing no bounds. It’s this musical dexterity that has earned them a stamp of approval across the UK and beyond, this time joining forces with some of the most exciting names in the UK and internationally. The pair flourish on songs that explore the complexities of relationships, reflections of how far they have come, whilst still fulfilling the need for a classic Young T & Bugsey hit.
“After the success of our debut project, Plead The 5th, with stand out Hits like Strike a Pose and the worldwide smash Don’t Rush, we knew we had to take our time with our follow up mixtape. ‘Truth Be Told’ continues the illustrious run of head jolting, dance floor prompting Young T & Bugsey music, with an added flair this time around and refreshing sense of musical and personal growth! We’re excited for fans to go on this journey with us.” Young T & Bugsey says.
Being based outside of London, Young T & Bugsey – who met aged 15 whilst working in KFC – immediately honed in on their chemistry. Having followed a less-travelled path to success, the duo are rarely out of the limelight – having been tipped by BBC Radio 1Xtra, co-signed by Stormzy, and going on to spearhead the emerging Nottingham rap scene. The duo’s single “Ay Caramba” became their first top 40 single, and they consequently went on to be the first act from their city to achieve a Platinum Certified single.
Last year saw the release of debut mixtape Plead The 5th , an impressive first body of work featuring hit singles “Strike A Pose” featuring Manchester rapper Aitch, and the Headie One backed smash “Don’t Rush.” ‘Don’t Rush’ quickly became a global success and an unavoidable soundtrack to 2020, achieving one of the most exciting viral moments seen from a UK act. Young T & Bugsey went on to receive three Brit Award nominations, plus a stellar performance at this year’s ceremony alongside Headie One. They reached even further heights when they were nominated for two BET Awards and became the first UK Rap duo to hit Billboard’s Hot 100 List. With the duo taking their craft to new heights, it’s clear that their new body of work will be another career defining moment.
