Benny Blanco may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think of all star producers but it’s a name you won’t be forgetting anytime soon. For years, Blanco has been the man behind the music, producing for artists like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Tory Lanez, and Kesha, and winning several Grammys for his production for Ed Sheeran, Rihanna, The Weeknd, and Bruno Mars. His most recent credits include production and writing for Kanye’s ye and KIDS SEE GHOSTS and Nas’ NASIR. After more than ten years of producing for others, Benny Blanco has now unveiled his debut single “Eastside” featuring Khalid and Halsey. Co-produced by Cashmere Cat and co-written by Ed Sheeran, “Eastside” is the epitome of the perfect love song, playing off of Khalid and Halsey’s sultry duet as they sing about young, burgeoning love and running away together. Along with the single, Blanco has debuted his first music video and it’s reminiscent of Cashmere Cat’s “9” video, which was actually shot in Blanco’s LA house with Blanco’s dogs and features him eating a bowl of cereal. The video is a work of perfection, telling the story of Benny’s first date and Halsey’s first love in a beautiful, jaw-dropping, magical way.
