oday, 17 year old singer-songwriter Benicio Bryant releases the stripped version of his new single “WHO HURT YOU?” via Arista Records. “WHO HURT YOU” has been stripped back and reimagined. Benicio sings his melody over a warm piano tone that you will melt to.
About the track, Benicio shares, “‘WHO HURT YOU?’ is super special to me because it can be about whatever you want it to be! Wherever you are in life and the problems you’re facing are valid and different for everyone, but I want us to come together and celebrate that we are all human and get through things together!”
About Benicio Bryant:
When 17-year-old Benicio Bryant opens his mouth to sing, hold on tight. At the intersection of pop R&B acts like Ruel, The Weeknd, and Justin Bieber, the pop upstart has a tone and depth of voice ready to fill arenas. His effortless star quality matched by a humble confidence and sense of self adds maturity beyond his years. Secure not only in his musical talent but also in his self expression through unique runway-ready style and striking presence, he’s a primed trendsetter reminiscent of fellow Gen Z vanguards like Conan Gray and Billie Eilish.
At age 13, he placed second on Germany’s The Voice Kids and became a finalist on America’s Got Talent last year before signing a major label deal with Arista Records. He went on to release his debut single “Ghosted” featuring buzzy hip hop up-and-comer 12AM. Impossible to decipher its having been recorded at home, 808s and Benicio’s velvet vocals melt together with the added flare of 12AM’s swaggy flow for a radio ready teenage heartthrob anthem.
