TORONTO, ON., December 10, 2020 — Multi award-winning Nova Scotian hip hop artist and music producer, Classified has just a dropped a new video for his new Christmas single, “The Bells Are Ringing”
“Been dropping a lot of music this year, trying to continue giving you guys something to keep your mind off what’s been going on this year, and even more so, to keep myself busy and keep my mind off of what’s going on. I just have to stay working.,” said Classified, whose real name is Lucas Boyd.
About the new single Classified said, “Made this beat a few weeks ago and it reminded me of Christmas. I always wanted to do a Christmas song… and shit… it’s 2020… why not do a Christmas song during one of the toughest years I can remember.”
Classified also explains how the song came together. He said he “Made the beat and wrote the hallelujah part November 8th, wrote my verses November 9th, and on November 10th, I recorded it. O Sound came through and beefed up the choir vibe on the hallelujah part and I got about 8 chorus ideas from Breagh Isabel. Chopped up the one I liked and mixed it the next day to get it done in time to release today!” said the popular Canadian artist.
“Hope you guys like it and I hope it brings that Christmas spirit out! Video out now!” Classified
