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

Benny Blanco’s artist project gathers momentum with the arrival of “I Found You.” Featuring the vocals of fellow super-producer Calvin Harris, this is the kind of pop-centric banger that would sound equally at home on top 40 radio or in a club. “I cannot say what I’m feeling, if I don’t know how to move,” the Scottish DJ croons in the first (and only) verse. “I cannot say what I believe in, finally believe in you.” That takes us to the simple, but extremely effective chorus: “‘Cause I found you, I found you.”

It was always going to be hard to followup a global smash like “Eastside” (300 million Spotify streams and rising), but this comes very, very close. “I been a fan of Calvin since 2007… I was always attracted to how much soul and musicality he brought to the table,” Benny wrote on Instagram. “He also has one of my favorite recorded voices ever… even tho he thinks it sounds like shit… I love it!” Take a listen to “I Found You” below and judge for yourself. (I’m definitely team Blanco on this issue).
