Chingy to Drop Long Awaited New Single “F.Y.R.”
Currently working on a new studio project entitled “Dead Rose.” Chingaling is back in your earhole with this new joint “F.Y.R.” dropping on Friday October 27th through Fulldekk/Bungalo/UMGD. —
The concept derived from the thought that even after a rose has died, it still holds its beauty. From his chart-topping ladies’ anthems to the tracks that make you want to dance, Chingy stays true to the music his fans know him for with this project. However, his lyrical content has blossomed, radiating energy through poetic lyricism that everyone can identify with. He is positioned to “come back from the dead”, showing his fans his dormancy has enabled him to thrive, both professionally and personally. Dead Rose will substantiate the beauty in transformation, indistinguishable to the life cycle of a rose.
Available soon on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Rhapsody, Napster, Pandora, and all other digital outlets.
