Benny, Khalid & Halsey's 'Eastside'
Benny Blanco launches his artist project with 'Eastside' featuring Khalid and Halsey.

After years of producing hits for other people (Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect,” Lana Del Rey’s “Love” and Julia Michaels’ “Issues,” for starters), Benny Blanco finally got around to releasing one of his own in July. “Eastside,” a nostalgic bop featuring Khalid and Halsey, topped the charts in the UK, reached the top 10 in most major markets and cracked the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. It goes without saying that expectations are high for the followup, but the 30-year-old has an ace up his sleeve in the form of a rare vocal feature from Calvin Harris.

“I been a fan of calvin since 2007… I was always attracted to how much soul and musicality he brought to the table… he also has one of my favorite recorded voices ever.. even tho he thinks it sounds like shit… I love it!” Benny wrote on Instagram. “So when we decided to put out a song together… I would beg him to sing on it everyday and just kept annoying him until he finally wore down and just sang it… oh yah song comes out nov 2nd!!!” See the hitmaker’s very casual single announcement below.
