Benny Blanco is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. The renowned producer with credits alongside the likes of Kanye West, Katy Perry, Britney Spears, and Ed Sheeran has stepped into the spotlight after years of work behind the scenes. Over the course of mere months, Benny Blanco has tastefully showcased his range of talents from his emotional pop hit “Eastside“, which featured Halsey and Khalid, to his feel-good house single “I Found You” with Calvin Harris. Always ahead of the curve, Benny Blanco has unveiled his third single “Better To Lie”, which is a unique take on the burgeoning rock/hip-hop crossover genre. Quite literally, Blanco has enlisted rising rapper Swae Lee, known for his collaborations with Post Malone, Nicki Minaj, and XXXtentacion, and The Neighborhood‘s lead singer Jesse Rutherford, mononymously known as Jesse, for “Better To Lie”. Gushing with a rhythmic guitar melody and crisp 808 percussion, there’s a beautiful contrasting medley to the combination of Jesse’s alt-rock vocals and Swae Lee’s intrinsic rap flow. Benny Blanco is the only producer who could combine such different, dynamic forces on one song and end with a product that is absolutely stunning. If you’re not on the Benny Blanco train, now’s the time to hop on. Stream Benny Blanco’s flawless new single “Better To Lie” below.
