“Budapest” is the lead single from British artist George Ezra’s debut album Wanted on Voyage. The song peaked at number 3 on the UK Singles chart and has been successful in New Zealand, Austria, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Italy, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. “Budapest” has also sold 500,000 copies in the US.
While the song is named after the city in Hungary, Ezra says it actually has nothing to do with the real city of Budapest, he has never been there. He was meant to catch a train to Budapest but was too hung over to make it, therefore, he was “miles from Budapest.”
While this song has a slow build it is definitely still a fun song to jam to in the car and that’s why I chose it for this week’s Cover Wars! Vote for your favorite artist below, and like always, if there is a song you would like chosen for the next Cover Wars put it in the comments below!
