Benny Sings and producer Kenny Beats join forces for new song “The World,” created at Kenny’s studio in Los Angeles. This isn’t the first time Kenny & Benny have got together: Kenny produced a track for Benny’s 2021 release Beat Tape II, then this year, Kenny released his debut album Louie, which featured Benny on “The Perch” and included two songs he co-wrote.

“The World” is the first single from a forthcoming longer project from Kenny & Benny. The night before they were due to go into the studio, Kenny binge-watched yacht rock documentaries, inspiring the song’s bright chords and jazzy pop rhythms. “The World” was completed with L.A.-based musician Hether joining Benny and Kenny on guitar. 

Benny describes “The World” as having “a very nostalgic, ‘70s feel, pumped up by Kenny.” It’s about “living it up” wherever you are: “All that math and history / It don’t mean that much to me / Get those books away from me / Come and see the world.”
