“Happening” – Review Of Chiddy Bang’s Breakfast

By | 3 Comments

Between their penchant for employing choruses of (what sounds like) little kids in their hooks and the dopey sound of front man Chidera "Chiddy" Anamege’s voice, Philly duo <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/chiddy-bang">Chiddy Bang</a> seems to be firmly entrenched in a bubble gum-flavored lane.

After watching the video for <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/chiddy-bang">Chiddy Bang's</a> "Ray Charles," I'd say it's a safe bet to assume Universal Records is finally behind a single for their duo's Breakfast debut.
