20-year-old New Zealand singer Benee is basking in her breakout success. Her song “Supalonely” went viral on TikTok, earned a Platinum certification, and even caught the attention of Elton John. Now, following a handful of EPs, Benee is ready to release her debut album.
The singer announced her first full-length album Friday. Titled Hey U X, the 13-track effort boasts guest verses from big-name artists like Grimes, Flo Milli, and Lily Allen. Speaking to Uproxx ahead of her debut album’s announcement, Benee described how her first LP will take a different direction from her previous EPs.
“I think with this album, I haven’t really held back on experimenting with genres and even lyrics,” Benee said. “Maybe I would have been more hesitant to do some of the things that I’ve done on this album in my previous bodies of work. [..] I feel like some people who like my other stuff are going to hate this because it’s pretty different, but I had a lot of fun making it.”
