Ruff Endz – Congratulations
“CONGRATULATIONS” is the latest offering from the group’s recently released 5th studio album, “REBIRTH“. The heartfelt single was written by Ruff Endz and produced by David Chance.
“The inspiration behind the song was to write a break-up song that left both people empowered instead of the usual break-up song where the couple hates each other,” mentions David Chance. “We hope that this song brings a more peaceful approach to a break-up,” adds Dante Jordan.
The music video for “CONGRATULATION” was directed by DC Coles. The video also just made its global debut on BET SOUL (currently playing). RUFF ENDZ’s latest album release, “REBIRTH” debuted at #3 on the iTunes R&B charts. Since the release of the album they have released the singles, “Be The One“, “Party Over Here“, “Only One I See” and “Your Body” featuring Krayzie Bone.

“The inspiration behind this album was birthed out of our experiences, both personally and professionally. Musically the album embodies elements from the classic era of R&B which we thought were important to preserve but still be able to incorporate a 2021 perspective,” mentions Ruff Endz.
“We are excited about this project because it’s a true expression of how we really feel as men. We see life as a roller coaster of emotions and “REBIRTH” is a reflection of us riding the emotional ups & downs of life. Each song shares about an emotion that we have experienced and how we dealt with those situations,” adds the group.
Overall, the tone of this album is positive, so it doesn’t matter where you are in your life there is something for you on this album that is sure to satisfy your R&B appetite.
