Today’s song is Personal delivered by Bermudian born rapper/singer-songwriter and producer BENTO.BDA. The track is taken from his forthcoming debut EP The Deep which will be release later this year.
BENTO.BDA is an award-winning artist, winning song of the year at the UG awards, aged just 16 for Bermuda in 2005 and went on to support the likes of CHRIS BROWN, JOSS STONE and more recently THE GAME.
Now residing in London, BENTO.BDA has been writing, producing and featuring for a number of UK artists such as BLUEY ROBINSON and his track, Good Times, and most recently RAHEEM BAKARE, who debut single Portrait Of Love which Bento co-wrote, hit no 1 on MTV Base.
This lead to Bento’s debut radio release Slow Jam, also featuring BLUEY ROBINSON which reached no 18 in the Music Week urban chart, and resulting in being playlisted on numerous radio stations including Unity Radio and Kemet FM, as well as gaining the support of 1Xtra Target and Capital Xtra.
Bento’s father, a musician himself, encourage and exposed Bento to a wider variety of pop, rock and soul music, and this love of melody and classic music was ingrained but it was hip-hop and rap that give Bento the platform to express himself.
So take time out and have a listen to Personal.
