Benny Sings and Kenny Beats collaborate on two new singles

With “The World” and “The Only One” Benny Sings releases two West Coast AOR inspired singles at once. For the new songs, Benny traveled to LA and London to work with American producer and songwriter Kenny Beats. Both songs are from a upcoming new project.

Benny says about ‘The World’: “This was the first song Kenny and I wrote together in his studio in LA. Kenny had binge-watched Yacht Rock documentaries the evening before in preparation for our writing sessions. He was full of ideas and rhythms and I was doing some chords, and this popped out. Hether joined us for some great guitar parts and came up with the top line for the bridge (all that math). I brought the song home with me, and then we came up with the chorus (living it up). It’s a song that refers to the old yacht rock days of the record, a very nostalgic, 70’s feel, pumped up by Kenny.”

‘The Only One” is a new slice of blissful soul-pop. Benny wrote this song in his native town Amsterdam and finished it in LA and London. Benny says ‘The Only One’ is “about a man who’s losing touch with reality, obsessing (yet again) over a woman. I sing differently than I normally do, but I couldn’t help getting sweet and smooth again in the chorus.” The process of creating ‘The Only One’ flowed as sweetly as its sparkling guitar riff: “Normally there would be a lot of sweat and tears in the creation process, but not this time.”

This isn’t the first time Kenny and Benny have worked together: Kenny produced a track for Benny’s 2021 release “Beat Tape II”, then this year, Kenny released his debut album Louie, which featured Benny on The Perch and included two songs he co-wrote.
