Watch Beckham perform “Addicted & Clean” and “Whiskey On The Wall,” and “23” below.
“Addicted & Clean”
“No I ain’t sober but I’m over you most days / Getting closer but you’re a habit I can’t break / I’m somewhere between locked up & free / the first thing I want / the last thing I need / the man I am, the man I wanna be / I’m somewhere between addicted & clean,” Beckham sings in the chorus.
“Whiskey On The Wall”
“Well I’m just sitting hoping / that the second that I open up the bottle I find out what I should do / and I know that I’ve been leaning on you way to much this evening / but I’m trying to run away from all the truth / show me the man that can’t remember her at all / oh, whiskey whiskey / oh, whiskey whiskey / on the wall,” Beckham sings on the chorus of the unreleased new track. “Whiskey, whiskey on the wall / would you take the blame / would you take the fall / if I wind up texting her some message and asking if she’s up / would you keep me company if she isn’t?”
“Now I’m 23 and there ain’t nobody who can drink like me / Soon I’ll be 24 and the Lord knows that I can’t drink no more / I know I shoulda taken it slow / It’s not the way that my life goes / Now I know,” Beckham sings on his autobiographical debut single.Additionally, the former heavy machinery operator has been “working endlessly” to get new music out for his fans and he recently shared that he just wrapped recording a few songs this week, which sent fans into a frenzy of excitement as they await the tunes that will follow his chart-topping debut single “23.”

I love hearing y’all’s feedback after the shows just know I’m working endlessly and creating endlessly as I promised I would. I’m loving every second and I plan on doing this for a long long time.”
