Broadway Benson is an artist on the rise, with a distinct and natural ability to rap impressively, as well as an intriguing thread of thoughts and pictures. His latest release, “Close Eyelids,” demonstrates his abilities quite well, starting with pleasant music — his flow is relentless. On the other hand, the calm musical backdrop offers a beautiful contrast and allows it to flow brilliantly.
Born in Scarborough, ON Canada, Benson’s love for numbers started at age 5 when he learned to count to 1 million. After showing a gift for investing at age 12, musical influences started entering his life. Only a select few spoke to Benny’s love for jazz, lyrical hip hop, R & B, soca, and reggae.
After several years working behind the scenes as a creative director and content writer, Benson combined his experiences and talents to tell his story of being a first-generation self-made entrepreneur inspired by his world. Some of the few artists Benson was inspired by as he channels their energy in his music are Drake, Jay-Z, MF Doom, RPB, and Andre 3000.
His ability to inspire audiences with his message and lyrics can be heard booming from cars to boardroom offices. Broadway Benson has been having a different conversation with his music, and the world is waking up to listen.
Broadway Benson’s new track “Close Eyelids” showcases his poetic skills and love of music. His attitude to creativity glides effortlessly between the ability and the modestly dramatic or characterful.
“Close Eyelids” kicks off the process by enveloping the listener in an upbeat, stimulating environment, within which the artist’s distinct leading voice emerges both melodically and rhythmically during the rap verses.
More than just being enjoyable to listen to, you’ll be impressed by how every single line and bar is made up entirely of the song title.
The track’s structure and visuals work nicely to keep you hooked; the soundscape changes in tandem with the performance – so as the melodic or rap parts arrive, the intensity rises correspondingly, allowing everything to retain a natural bounce and appeal.
Furthermore, the wordplay and story-telling – the environment, the ideas portrayed – are all distinctively engaging and work to captivate you from the start. Big things are in store for Broadway Benson if his lyricism and genuine performance talent continue to shine.
