South London rapper Faith Child's newest single "That Was Then" is an energetic, electronic trap slapper that showcases a rousing vocal style that is both entertaining and gripping. The track produced by Alex E (who has previously worked with the likes of Tinchy Stryder and DJ Blinkie) has a heavy and vibrant groove which embodies the fast-paced Croydon buzz – the London Borough where the British-Nigerian rapper was raised. He takes some time to pay tribute to the ‘ends’ that moulded him, upholds his Christian faith and celebrates the journey from “where we used to be, to where we are now”.
For the "That Was Then" video, Faith Child has linked up with acclaimed London video director Chas Appeti, whose previous directorial credits include working with Krept & Konan, Giggs and Lethal Bizzle. The team have worked together to deliver a crisp, high-octane visual element which not only emphasizes the premise of the song but also captures the community essence of London living – from kids playing on the block to the customary congregation at Morley’s after school to water gun fights at the park.
"That Was Then" is taken from the MOBO Award-winning rapper Faith Child's forthcoming third studio album.
