Benny Sings feat. GoldLink - "You And Me"

I don’t know about the rest of you, but when I think about the luke-warm year in music that was 2011, one record alone saved me. Dutch do-it-all Benny Sings dropped his fourth studio album ART that year and it basically held me over in my My Twisted Dark Beautiful Fantasy recoup; a light, yet deceptively intricate yacht-styled r&b chaser. And while there’s been little in the way of new music from Benny over the years since, it appears the kid is back with a new record in the works and a slick new single to boot.

“You And Me” finds Benny connecting with Soulection‘s champion MC/vocalist GoldLink for a hearty stew of smokey r&b elements, backed by a hard-knocking kit and velvet key work. Both Benny and the DMV dynamo grace the cut with some silky vocals, making this a nice little dose of intercontinental funksmanship for your minds. Stream the latest from Benny Sings below and hold tight for his new album STUDIO, slated to arrive November 27th via Jakarta & Dox Records and mixed by Stones Throw’s The Stepkids. Preorder it today via Bandcamp.
