Just last month, Benny Sings brought in the holiday season with the Thanksgiving Day drop of his first studio in five years, appropriately-named STUDIO. The album marked a welcome return from the Danish dynamo, nabbing some OKP-favorites for the resurgence.
Today, however Benny brings to life one of the album’s particularly pristine collaborations, treating his Mayer Hawthorne-assisted gem, “Shoebox Money” to a Brooklyn-clad clip that toasts to his time with us in the states (which you can relive for yourself by jumping back to our candid interview with the musician.) Benny swings, Benny runs, Benny takes to Bed-Stuy’s streets in a lo-fidelity clip that offsets the high-fidelity r&b of the cut, mixed by Stones Throw’s own The Stepkids to give it that extra touch.
Peep the lo-fi visuals for Benny Sings’ “Shoebox Money” featuing Mayer Hawthorne below and if you’ve yet to do so, grab a copy of STUDIO on Bandcamp today to hear what all the funk and fuss is about. Jump back a bit to hear his velvety GoldLink-up “You And Me” or his Jakarta loosie “Softly.”
