What a nice surprise.

Meet Benny.

Benny is an unsigned 18-year-old singer from the U.S. who started putting out music online 2 years ago, which isn’t a surprising start to music nowadays, however he is also a YouTuber with over 200k subscribers.

From Trisha Paytas to Rebecca Black, many YouTubers have forayed into music for different reasons, whether it be for fun or that a career in music was the ultimate goal all along, like Troye Sivan.

“Never Apart” is Benny’s third song to be released yet it feels like a debut, as he delves into something deeper and more introspective than the social commentary of his previous songs.

He delivers an impassioned vocal, crooning the lustful lyrics over the dreamy production built on warbly synths.

Comparisons must be the most frustrating things for new (especially young) artists as they discover who they are and attempt to define themselves in such a huge industry, but if this song is anything to go by then Benny might be the one singing on Martin Garrix’s album in a few years.
