He’s been gaining a lot of attention, and his new single, “Chances”, has been racking up views on Youtube.
Moy Baun grew up in Queens, New York with his mother. He said it was a rough place to grow up, but he made the best of it. What got him through his difficulties was his ambitious mentality and his focus on the blessings he had, “Somebody always has it worse than you do, and they seem to make it work out. Always keep a positive mindset and make things happen. Be appreciative of what you have because they are some people that can only wish they had what you did.” He also heavily believes in taking risks to achieve your goals, “I wouldn’t be where I am today if I didn’t take the chances I did. You always have to believe in yourself and your vision, no matter what’s going on around you.”
This is exactly the journey he takes you through in “Chances”. You can’t help but feel ambitious and motivated after listening to this track. Moy Baun’s voice and unique delivery will have you playing it on repeat. Go give it a listen!
