Macklemore Releases New Song “FAITHFUL” featuring NLE Choppa
American rapper Macklemore released a new song “FAITHFUL” on October 28, 2022.
This time, he teamed up with American rapper NLE Choppa on the track.
The song will appear on his upcoming third studio album “BEN”, which is set to be released on March 3, 2023.
It was written by Ben Haggerty, Bryson LaShun Potts, Joshua "Budo" Karp, Tyler Andrews, and Tyler Dopps. Produced by Budo.
He has already filmed the music video for the song directed by John Peterson, which is coming soon.
Macklemore said of the song, “I wrote FAITHFUL after a 2020 relapse that brought me back to a familiar darkness I naively thought I had escaped. It's a personal song for me, reflecting on my struggles with addiction. As long as I can remember, I've wanted to be clean, and yet the disease I have is always present, it always follows me. The record explores the presence of addiction in every facet of my life, and how pervasive and insidious it can be.”
- He continued, “I love what Choppa did with his verse. He brought the song into his world, writing from the perspective of a supportive friend and showing up in a desperate time. I thought the song would push him out of his comfort zone, but honestly he sounded right at home in the pocket and brought a whole new concept to the record. It's been refreshing spending some time with him. I'm hella impressed not only by his pen, but his perspective on life and quest for spiritual growth.”
