Mar 06 Listen: Benjamin – “Body”

Our favourite Finnish popstar (and Artist of the Week alumni) returns this week with his brand new single “Body”. “Body” is the follow-up to Benjamin’s latest single (the amaze-balls brilliant) “Young and Restless” which came from his debut EP “Square One”. “Body” is another great pop gem, with a bit more of an RnB flavour mixed with some 80s synth sounds. It’s definitely gonna be on our playlists for a while. We can’t wait for more from this superstar on the rise. “Body” was released on iTunes and Spotify on March 4th. Watch the lyric video below!

To make things less difficult (well, sorta), each Trendio editor was asked to pick five of their favorite songs born...more

Well he’s gone and released a video for the absolutely brilliant song “Young and Restless” today! In the video, the blonde-haired Instragram star can be seen doing some parkour, having a little sexy time with a young lady and performing on stage and greeting his fans. It’s actually pretty epic. Seriously, this song is incredible. “Young and Restless” was written by Joonas Angeria, Nathan Cyphert and fellow AOTW Alumni Phoebe Ryan. Check out the video below!
