簡介

千禧年出生的BENEE,被Billboard選為「21個21歲以下最具影響力的歌手」之一。原名Stella Rose Bennett在紐西蘭奧克蘭長大,連續兩年贏得New Zealand Music Awards的「Single of the Year」、「Best Solo Artist」及「Best Pop Artist」三大獎項。自小受父母感染下大量收聽Bjork、Groove Armada和Radiohead的音樂,及後以Grace Jones、Amy Winehouse和Lily Allen為目標偶像。BENEE早年把翻唱Gnarls Barkley和Amy Winehouse等的歌曲,放到Sound cloud平台上而得到廣泛認識。去年在相隔四個多就推出兩張EP《FIRE ON MARZZ》及《STELLA & STEVE》,於紐西蘭大賣分別得到白金及金銷量,其中歌曲“Supalonely”事有湊巧成為疫情大熱歌,全球勁收近22億串流量,是繼Lorde後最閃亮的紐西蘭女歌手。BENEE的創作極具個人風格,爽朗又「好玩」,常被傳媒稱為開朗版的Billie Eilish,她更被樂壇大前輩Elton John激讚她的天賦,是令人驚嘆的新人!

BENEE首張大碟《Hey u x》已經推出,是BENEE過去一年半關於情感,虛構故事,周遭一切的經歷。大碟名字「hey u x」就像日常發短訊給朋友,那樣隨意和親密,她說:「現今全球的狀況,我意識到音樂很重要,音樂可以幫助人們。」最新主打歌“Kool”是BENEE在洛杉磯製作“Supalonely”和“Night Garden”時同時創作,是整個旅程的最後一首作品。歌曲寫看起來毫不費力就很有型 (cool) 的歌手,同時反思自己與人共處時感到焦慮,過度思考而做出尷尬的事。MV中BENEE扮演虛擬生活遊戲系列The Sims的角色人物,BENEE想借MV帶出希望可以轉換身份,變為言行cool的人。

歌詞

You're so well-spoken, have control when
You walk into the room, you show them
You're outside smokin', your skin is glowin'
You're like an angel, out of this world
I love your confidence you strike
I wanna dip into your life
You float around without a care
I love your steeze and what you wear

And I stay at home most of the time
You're so badass, owning the night
So badass

I wish I could be like you (I really do)
I wish I could be cool like you (Cool like you)
I say stupid stuff (Yeah, yeah)
And embarrass myself ('Cause I'm dumb)
I'm not very cool (Yeah)
It sucks, I suck, I want to be like you (You're cool)
I say stupid stuff (Stupid stuff)
And I embarrass myself (Yeah, yeah)

C-cool, c-cool, cool
C-cool, c-cool, cool
Cool like you
C-cool, c-cool, cool
C-cool, c-cool, cool

I'm mesmerised by what you say
But you don't know that I exist
People can't keep themselves away
Like they're under some kind of spell

And I stay at home most of the time
You're so badass, owning the night
So badass

I wish I could be like you (I really do)
I wish I could be cool like you (Cool like you)
I say stupid stuff (Yeah, yeah)
And embarrass myself ('Cause I'm dumb)
I'm not very cool (Yeah)
It sucks, I suck, I want to be like you (You're cool)
I say stupid stuff (Stupid stuff)
And I embarrass myself (Yeah, yeah)
