Who? 16 year old Benjamin Lasnier. Hailing from Denmark, he’s slowly but steadily risen to fame over the last three years, and all of his own accord too. That’ll be largely thanks to Instagram and his engagement on other social media platforms. The next logical step of course is to become a popstar. Sony Denmark have signed him, and they now release the first single and video. Here comes ‘Love You Out Loud’.
What’s it like? He’s not fucking around with this. Straight into the studio with some of Sweden’s finest writers, and he’s come out with a hugely strong pop debut. It’s got a glossy r&b production, and a huge catchy chorus.
Written by? Benjamin himself, along with Christian Fast, Didrik Thott, and Christoffer Lauridsen.
More from Benjamin? He’s being managed by Peter Swartling – the guy credited with launching ROBYN. So yeah – there’ll be more.
