-- Benjamin Hey!, the contemporary R&B/Urban Pop recording artist, has officially released his latest single..."Giving Up (Is Not An Option)" on #musicmonday
'Giving Up"' is a catchy empowerment anthem that was produced by LA based phenom, Jonny On The Rocks (Laverne Cox - Beat For The Gods). The video was shot in Los Angeles at The Wall pop-up studio. In the video, Benjamin Hey! is a personal trainer who is pushing his client to the limit. The song, about overcoming adversity, is coming out at a perfect time when Creed 2 is hitting theaters.
"Giving Up" is styled in the vein of the EDM/Pop producers, Chainsmokers and has flavorings of Mary J. Blige. The inspiration for the song came out of a feeling of defeat. "After a season of missed opportunities, my spirit was feeling worn. I went down for a nap and the song practically woke me up and I wrote it instantly. It was the shot that I needed to keep moving forward!" says the singer.
"Giving Up" is the latest single from Benjamin Hey!'s anticipated LAX album (release date 1-11-19). The video is now available on YouTube. It is available for streaming/download on all digital formats including Spotify/AppleMusic/
Deezer and others.
2018 has been an eventful year for the singer/songwriter. His social media numbers have been exploding. He made an appearance at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards in New York City. However, the biggest accomplishment of his music career is his work and contribution to Emmy Award winning actress/producer/
activist Laverne Cox's debut single titled, "Beat For The Gods." which hit on the Billboard Dance/Club chart. Last week, Benjamin Hey! also had the honor of attending the Christopher & Dana Reeve gala in NYC. The gala which raises money for those who've suffered spinal cord injuries was a motivator for this particular song. 2019 is shaping up to be a successful one for this fledgling artist.
