Review Of “CONFESSIONS”
Chris Budden has a lot to get off his chest in his track “CONFESSIONS.” Mainly, the rapper goes on a riff about an ex-girlfriend who treated him poorly throughout their relationship. Furthermore, Budden’s verses create an underlying introspective atmosphere throughout the song. He’s surrounded by throws of women, drugs, expensive cars and the immaculate interior of a mansion. However, Budden’s verses pose a direct contrast to the party scene. The juxtaposition of the party scene and his frustrations at his ex creates an interesting effect in the video.
Furthermore, Budden purposefully wanted the music video to show the contrasting aspects of his reality. In an interview, the UK rapper shared that he wanted viewers “to feel my pain, but at the same time, go on a party trip with me”. In other words, laugh and vibe through the pain.
