New Zealand’s platinum sensation BENEE reveals her new single, Plain feat. Lily Allen & Flo Milli. It stands out as the latest song to be unveiled from her anxiously awaited full-length debut, ‘Hey u x,’ out 13 November.
Sending a message to an ex, dreamy guitar fades in and out of the background as BENEE croons, “What a shame your girl’s so plain, she’s got nothing on me. Hope she stays the hell away, I don’t want to see her.” The song features a gorgeously melancholic cameo from Lily Allen, while Flo Milli raps over the bouncy beat with a razor-sharp rhyme of her own. The track unites three dynamic and diverse female voices on one understated, yet undeniable send-off.
Of the collaboration, BENEE says, “I wanted to make it a song someone could listen to when they find out their ex is with someone new. The feeling sucks, so I wanted ‘Plain’ to make ya feel like you have the upper hand. Lily and Flo Milli both have such cool sass, and both their verses really elevated the track!”
Just over a week ago, BENEE first shared the details for ‘Hey u x.’ Blending, bending and breaking genres like only she can, the much-anticipated record boasts an all-star cast of collaborators, including Grimes, Gus Dapperton, Mallrat, Kenny Beats, Bakar and Muroki. ‘Hey u x’ includes BENEE’s Platinum-Certified smash hit Supalonley feat. Gus Dapperton, which has amassed over 2.1 billion global streams to date, as well as her recently released pop bops, Night Garden feat. Kenny Beats and Bakar and Snail. See the full album tracklist below. The album artwork was designed by Californian artist Terry Hoff.
Earlier this month, BENEE announced the launch of Olive, her very own record label based in New Zealand. Her first signing is Muroki, a 19-year-old artist from Raglan, New Zealand, who is featured on ‘Hey u x’ and accompanied her on her sold-out arena tour across New Zealand. Plus, the breakout artist recently reached new heights with nominations at the MTV EMAs (PUSH Best New Artist Category), E! People’s Choice Awards (The New Artist of 2020 Category) and New Zealand’s Aotearoa Music Awards (Single of the Year, Best Solo Artist, Best Pop Artist).
