Arrow Benjamin - Love and Hate
It takes a lot to go toe-to-toe with Beyoncé. There aren’t many vocalists, whether fellow A-listers or ambitious shooting stars, who would have the vocal chops – the guts – to duet with Queen Bey. Arrow Benjamin most definitely has both, and now he’s back with his exhilarating brand of neo-soul on new single ‘Love and Hate’, which premiered last night on BBC 1 Xtra as Mistajam’s ‘Inbox Fresh Track’.
Arrow’s already been working with many other talented artists and producers, including Major Lazer, Rudimental, Labrinth, Kygo, Plan B and Naughty Boy, and now he’s teamed up with producer Iain Archer (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything, Jake Bugg) on Love And Hate to create a beautiful combination of contemporary RnB, Pop and Blues.
The young singer/songwriter captured the world’s attention in 2015 when he was featured on ‘Runnin’ (Lose It All)’ from award winning British Producer Naughty Boy alongside the one and only Beyoncé. So far it’s had 135 million YouTube views, reached #1 on iTunes in 31 countries, hit #1 on the UK airplay chart, and is now a Gold record with over half a million sales in the UK. It’s also nominated for a 2016 Brit Award.
Originally from South London, music has always been Benjamin’s passion. Heavily influenced by a close knit West Indian upbringing, Arrow began writing as early as 9 years old. “My family loves music. Everything gets played, nothing gets shunned.”
He is supporting Seinabo Sey at XOYO March 3rd, with more dates to be announced.
