Ruben Young – Bad Habits

Ruben Young - Bad Habits

Rising Canadian R&B artist Ruben Young shares the ever so smooth ‘Bad Habits’.

Speaking of the single, Ruben says,

“I wrote it in the fall of 2015, following my “relapse” for a girl I’d been chasing since I was 16 years old. She’s never been good for me, and I’ve known it all along. We kept our ‘relationship’ a secret, and it became more of an affair. She was my forbidden secret – my bad habit. 7 years later, it all came crashing down. I think everyone’s guilty of falling for someone who they couldn’t get over; even though they knew they needed to. For me, she was dangerous, and I loved that about her.”
