Future Hit: BENEE's 'Supalonely'
BENEE & Gus Dapperton have a hit on their hands with loner anthem 'Supalonely.'

Gus Dapperton is one of the breakout stars of 2020 thanks to a feature on BENEE’s all-conquering “Supalonely.” That impossibly-perky loner anthem went viral on TikTok earlier this year and eventually crossed over to radio. It’s now a top 40 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 and still gaining momentum. The 23-year-old could have a streaming sensation of his own with “Post Humorous,” a delightfully jarring concoction about grief and childhood trauma — complete with a joyous chorus and upbeat production.

“So make me laugh, as for my last request,” Gus sings. “If I don’t take it back, would you ignore my last request?” From there, he takes us to the sing-along chorus. “But as a reminder, ready when you find her,” the newcomer croons. “I repress the iridescence of a fire and won’t you mind him?” All in all, it’s a winning juxtaposition of conflicting emotions. “Post Humorous” will feature on Gus’ just-announced Orca LP (due September 18). Watch the video, which features cameos from BENEE, Remi Wolf, Orion Sun and Santi, below.
