I guess I was too quick to assume “Mind Your Manners” was the first single from Chiddy Bang’s forthcoming album, Breakfast. Earlier this month, the official first single, “Ray Charles,” appeared and spread like wildfire. But it’s not an ode to the legendary soul singer, as Chiddy explains:
“The song actually started out as a joke when my brother, Cheeseburger Don, got so high he fell asleep in the studio with his sunglasses on. I looked over and he reminded me of Ray Charles, probably because I was high, too. I started freestyling about him and we laid it down right there.”
Still no word on the release date of Breakfast, but the sooner the better. Listen to “Ray Charles” below.
