Collie Buddz Talks 'Good Life' Album & Making a Comeback After a Decade-Long Wait

FUSE TV - Collie Buddz Talks 'Good Life' Album & Making a Comeback After a Decade-Long Wait

Collie Buddz finally made a welcome return to music with Good Life (released in May), marking his first album in a decade. It has never been proven easy for dancehall or reggae artists to stay relevant, as the genres' turnaround have become so fast-paced, but the Bermudian artist found a way to stay true to himself and give core fans what they've been craving for.

"It’s been a long time in the making!" Buddz explained over the phone as he just woke up in the afternoon from sunny California. "A lot of the beats I had from years ago, so it was a lot of emotions mixed into one [record]." Keep reading below for our conversation with the artist, who is now finding his way back into the mainstream spotlight 10 years after his self-titled debut album.
