Award winning superstar songwriter Benny Blanco –who’s almost as big a deal as the artists who record his songs–such as Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5, Rihanna and dozens more, has teamed up with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris and their “I Found You” is a hook filled dance romp that is sweet and charming–one feels good listening to it. The lyrics aren’t inspiring, but we respond to the warm and good hearted vibes.
It sounds like what being in love feels like.
In addition to the appealing sound, the video is also adorable: Blanco dancing, one on one, with friends, family, even his mother. (See the photo at the top of the page.)
Blanco’s last release, “Eastside,” with Halsey and Khalid, was a Top 40 sensation and it’s still ranking top 15 in Top 40 and Adult Top 40; it has almost a quarter billion youtube views.
A tough act to follow, but Blanco has a track record. He and Ed Sheeran co-wrote his hit “Castle On The Hill” and the two collaborated again with Justin Bieber for his #1 smash, “Love Yourself.”
The energy and melodic elements in “I Found You” can also be heard in the Tavares 1976 disco era hit “Heaven Must Be Missing An Angel.”
Benny Blanco is 30-years old and is from Virginia. He records, produces and writes pop, R&B, hip-hop, rock, and electronica songs.
