Benny Benassi & Lil Yachty Combine Forces for Driving New Single + Video “LONELY NIGHTS”
Following up his most recent hit “Inside,” legendary dance icon Benny Benassi joins forces with revered hip-hop solo artist Lil Yachty for “LONELY NIGHTS.” Spanning a career of almost twenty years, Benassi continues to enthrall audiences with his quintessential electro sound and his keen ability to stay relevant with the times. Benassi has previously catapulted his electronic productions to the forefront by collaborating with mainstream artists such as Chris Brown for “Paradise,” John Legend, and T-Pain.
With “Inside,” Yachty seamlessly rides Benassi’s vibe with vocoder vocals tackling the issues of mental health, loneliness, heartbreak, and friendship. The music video, directed by Robby Starbuck, depicts the playful nature of the song as younger versions of Yachty and Benassi are seen building and racing soapbox derby cars that ultimately grow into a speed racing duo cruising around in a Ferrari and Lamborghini as lifelong friends. The underlying message is to seek support in life with meaningful friendships. It’s fantastic to see such a positive and powerful message featured in a song that could easily be played at a mainstream nightclub.
