Christian French, one of 2020’s fastest-rising stars—with over 200 million Spotify streams under his belt — is back today with “make or break up,” an entrancing track that finds him at the pivotal crossroads of a rocky relationship. The enrapturing, introspective track is the newest entry from the staggeringly successful star’s hotly anticipated ‘good things take time’ EP (via Disruptor Records/RCA Records UK), which drops later this summer. Listen HERE.
“make or break up is about miscommunication and misunderstanding within a relationship” Christian says. “I wrote this song from an experience I had with someone where we were in a big fight, and neither of us were willing to budge. In the end, we decided that we’d always be transparent with each other no matter how badly it hurt, because honesty is synonymous with love and respect in a relationship. It’s the only way a couple can continue to grow, and can make or break any relationship.”
23-year-old Christian French has already won support and acclaim from TIME Magazine (who named his song “crowded room” one of the best songs of the week), Billboard Magazine (“mesmerizing”), Ones to Watch (“dazzling”), and more. “make or break up” follows the singer’s highly successful breakout track, “head first,” which has maintained astounding momentum since its 2019 release. Amassing more than 40 million global streams, and averaging over 200k daily streams thanks to features on Spotify’s top playlists like Pop Rising and Young & Free, the hypnotic alt-pop gem continues to enchant fans and new listeners worldwide.
Christian has also just released the “head first” remix pack, featuring dazzling new interpretations of his hit single by Young Bombs, Halp, and Pink Slip & Inverness. All three new versions of the gripping song stay true to the original’s captivating core: Young Bombs (a fellow Disruptor Records artist) propels things “head first” into the night with a dramatic rendition, Halp lightens the mood with a fizzy and fresh take, and Pink Slip & Inverness take things to the (virtual) dance floor with a ensnaring remix.
“Be honest with those you love, including yourself” Christian says of his must-hear new song. “Say what you need to say so that you can free yourself from a million presumptuous thoughts running through your head and break through to truth and understanding.”
Later this summer, French will release the ‘good things take time’ EP, on Disruptor Records/RCA Records UK, a collection which includes “i think too much,” plus singles “crowded room” and “time of our lives,” all songs that have surpassed millions of streams to date.
