These things take time.
When George Ezra first placed 'Budapest' online, he could hardly expected to see the ripples his music would cause.
In just over six months, the track has been streamed more than ten million times on Spotify and almost five million times on YouTube, while entering the Top 10 on iTunes in Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Italy and (rather appropriately) Hungary.
Well, now it's got a video. 'Budapest' is given a feisty crowd scene, ending with George Ezra singing straight into the camera.
Watch it now.

Somewhat strangely, George Ezra has never been to Budapest. "It was starting to get a bit silly," he said recently. "It was all I was getting asked for a while. So I thought, if I’m going to go, i’m going to have to make a thing of it."
Ergo: the Ezra Express. Tracing its way across Europe, the train will stop in various destinations before George Ezra dis-embarks to play a special show in Budapest. Dates as follows:
28 May - Bristol > London
- London > Brussels
- Brussels > Paris
29 May - Paris > Munich
30 May - Munich > Budapest
