North-London artist BenjiFlow unveils ‘My Bella’ featuring vocal contributions from iconic Nigerian singer Oxlade. The track is the second installment from his upcoming EP, The Thrill . ‘My Bella’ features BenjiFlow and Oxlade’s smooth voices over an intoxicating tropical instrumental, blending African alté influences into a song that transports the listener to a sun-soaked beach. Hypnotic and glowing, “My Bella” is an exciting taste of what’s to come from the rising star.
‘My Bella’ follows the single ‘GO’ which received praise from outlets such as Complex UK, Trench, and GRM Daily. Both feature on his highly anticipated next project titled The Thrill. The 8-track body of work is his most ambitious and exhilarating yet, demonstrating his incredibly versatile musical ability once again, amorous in tone and contemporary in its melting pot of smooth sounds. He effortlessly melds UK R&B, Afro-cuban rhythms, West African pop and sounds of South America such as samba, bossa nova and salsa into something so uniquely his own.
‘My Bella’ and ‘GO’ follow BenjiFlow’s 2020 acclaimed debut EP BENERGY which has over 6 million streams and features the singles ‘Jolene’, ‘Can’t Lose’ and ‘Deep End’, which was playlisted at BBC 1Xtra alongside impressive support from Beats 1, BBC Radio 1’s Huw Stephens, Dummy, HungerTV, in addition to becoming Radioactive Record of the Week. Last year also saw BenjiFlow asked to be the first artist to make an appearance on Boiler Room’s ‘ENERGY’ series.
BenjiFlow continues to prove why he’s one of the most compelling up and coming artists in the UK at the moment with ‘My Bella’. Watch this space for more on what’s to come.
