Just days after his acting debut in Machine Gun Kelly’s musical film, “Downfalls High”, LIL HUDDY (Chase Hudson) announced the start of his musical career.
On January 20th, the social media star released a teaser on Instagram. In the caption, he stated that music has been a passion of his, since he was a child. He grew up in a musical family, and although social media was what popularized him, Hudson wanted to explore the music industry.
Hudson has always expressed interest in the punk rock scene. From artists like My Chemical Romance, to 5 Seconds of Summer, he was made for the role of Fenix in “Downfalls High”.
According to Hudson’s Spotify-EPK (electronic press kit), he started taking his music seriously in 2020, and he even secured a record deal with Immersive/Geffen Records.
Last night, at 9 pm PST/12 am EST, Hudson released his debut single, “21st Century Vampire”. The song revolves around his vampire-like personality. It fits Hudson’s scene well, as he’s all about the black nail polish, leather jackets, and hardcore aesthetic.
Shortly after releasing “21st Century Vampire”, Hudson announced the premiere of the accompanied music video on YouTube. The music video gave off major TVD (“The Vampire Diaries”) vibes — from sucking the blood out of a woman’s neck, to sleeping in a dark coffin and hiding from the daylight. The only thing that Hudson was missing, was his own daylight ring.
In less than 24 hours, the music video has almost one million views, and the majority fan response is positive:
Even ex-girlfriend, Charli D’Amelio, praised Hudson for a job well done.
Congratulations on your latest projects, Chase. This is just the beginning for you!
