Artiestinformatie

Geboortedatum   03-08-1988
Land   Verenigde Staten

Benjamin Levin zette zijn eerste muzikale stappen in zijn slaapkamer waar hij stoeide met instrumenten. In 2002 raakt hij in contact met een aantal producers waarmee hij zijn kwaliteiten naar een hoger niveau weet te trekken. Op zijn twintigste tekent hij een contract met Dr. Luke die hem producties laat maken voor onder meer Katy Perry, Kesha en Taio Cruz. Na het uitdienen van dat contract maakt hij hits voor Maroon 5 (Payphone, Moves Like Jagger) en Gym Class Heroes (Stereo Hearts). Later volgden hits voor onder meer Justin Bieber, The Weeknd en Ariana Grande.


Als soloartiest start Benny Blanco zijn loopbaan in 2018 waarbij Eastside, een nummer waarop ook Halsey en Khalid te horen zijn en waar Ed Sheeran aan mee heeft geholpen als schrijver, zijn eerste eigen track is.


Songtekst

Uh
Yeah, yeah

When I was young
I fell in love
We used to hold hands, man
That was enough (Yeah)
Then we grew up
Started to touch
Used to kiss underneath the light
On the back of the bus (Yeah)
Oh no, your daddy didn't like me much
And he didn't believe me when I said you were the one
Oh, every day
She found a way out of the window to sneak out late

She used to meet me on the Eastside
In the city where the sun don't set
And every day you know that we ride
Through the backstreets of a blue Corvette
Baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
We can go anywhere we want
Drive down to the coast, jump in the sea
Just take my hand and come with me, yeah

We can do anything if we put our minds to it
Take your whole life, then you put a line through it
My love is yours if you're willing to take it
Give me your heart, cause I ain't gonna break it
So come away, starting today
Start a new life together in a different place
We know that love is how all these ideas came to be
So baby, run away with me

Seventeen and we got a dream to have
A family, a house and everything in between
And then, oh, suddenly we turned twenty-three
Now we got pressure for taking our life more seriously
We got our dead-end jobs and got bills to pay
Half our friends are now our enemies
Now I, I'm thinking back to when I was young
Back to the day when I was falling in love

He used to meet me on the Eastside
In the city where the sun don't set
And every day you know where we ride
Through the backstreets in a blue Corvette
And, baby, you know I just wanna leave tonight
We can go anywhere we want
Drive down to the coast, jump in the sea
Just take my hand and come with me, singing

We can do anything if we put our minds to it
Take your whole life, then you put a line through it
My love is yours if you're willing to take it
Give me your heart, cause I ain't gonna break it
So come away, starting today
Start a new life together in a different place
We know that love is how all these ideas came to be
So baby, run away with me

Run away now
Run away now
Run away now

Run away now
Run away now
Run away now

He used to meet me on the Eastside
She used to meet me on the Eastside
He used to meet me on the Eastside
She used to meet me on the Eastside
In the city where the sun don't set
