Benny Sings – You And Me (Feat. GoldLink)


Dutch veteran producer and singer Benny Sings (who had a memorable standout album in 2011 called ART) makes a slick serendipitous comeback after a long absence from the limelight with his new rhythmic-melodic hip-hop-inspired r&b-lustered smash hit single “You and Me” from his upcoming new Step Kids-mixed album called STUDIO that is out on November 27th via German label Jakarta Records and Dox Records in the Netherlands. New track “You and Me” (which we like for its stylish mesh of subtle-sensuous mellow-sublime beats, slick out-of-this-world vocals and cheery-guitar-groove-fed instrumentals) features the versatile vocal style and current-trend-bent flow of Soulection-artist VA-based emcee/vocalist Goldlink (who we recently covered for his Missy-sampling And After That, We Didn’t Talk LP knockout single “Spectrum”). We love the incredibly charming cohesive mesh of vocals on “You and Me” and look forward to hearing the lot of STUDIO which apparently only features one other track with a guest vocalist. We think Benny Sings made a wise choice to include Goldlink! Amazing collaboration. Reviewed by Erin Shay.
