Interview With: ThBenj

NEW LEASE MUSIC has caught up with THBENJ, who’s debut album, ‘T.H.B’ stole the top spot on the blog’s Top Ten Albums of 2019 list.

Get to know the upcoming Italian rapper, as he discusses his critically acclaimed album and his plans for 2020…so are you ready? Good!

NLM: Hey, thank you for taking part in an interview with NEW LEASE MUSIC. How’s life treating you?

TB: Hey, It’s a pleasure to be a part of the New Lease Music blog and I appreciate the support you’ve shown my music so far. I’m doing good, I recently moved over to Australia, everything is going amazing. I’m working on a lot of new music, I’ll be releasing a lot this year.

NLM: You released your album ‘T.H.B’ last year (which is #1 on New Lease Music’s Top Ten Albums of 2019). Have you received other accolades on the album?

TB: Being #1 on NLM Top 10 Albums for 2019, was a nice surprise. I’m very grateful and glad you guys enjoyed the album. Yes, 2019 has been a good year for ThBenj. We hit #1 on Google Play for the most albums sold in Hip Hop in Italy for 3 days and stayed in the top 10 for 5 consecutive weeks. I wasn’t expecting that at all. Really cool!

NLM: What inspired you to produce the album?

TB: The inspiration to write T.H.B. came from all over the place. Really, it’s a spontaneous album where I tell my story through my experiences. I tried to absorb as much vibe as I could and translate that into sounds, melodies and words everywhere I went.

Although, I always say it’s not me writing the songs, it’s something through me that makes the magic happen.

NLM: What is/are your favourite single(s) from the album and why?

TB: I like all of them and I think it makes sense to listen to them in the exact order that we’ve chosen for the album. But taking them singularly I would say “Mumble Acid”, “All Stars” and “Myself Again” for the deep messages they hold.

NLM: Do you have any plans to release a video for any of the songs on the album?

TB: Not at the moment, but definitely will be for the new music I’ll be releasing.

NLM: So how would you describe your sound to potential fans?

TB: I make music mostly for clubs and that’s my sound, a club sound.

NLM: If you had the chance to collaborate with ONE mainstream artist on the album, who would it be?

TB: Russ, he’s not afraid to make something different.

NLM: If you had three wishes to change the music industry today, what would they be?

TB: I’ve only got one, changing the main topic. I Can feel it’s already changing though.

NLM: lol OK fair enough! So how can potential fans contact you?

TB: Just hit me up on IG @th_benj or FB ThBenj

NLM: Finally, any New Year’s resolution(s)

TB: I’ve just dropped my most recent single “2020” and I’m exclusively letting you know that I’ve scheduled the release of “Reasons” for February 14th. I may even leak a song or two before that, so yeah, this year is going to be a movie. Lot of music coming out.

I wish lots of success, health and joy to anyone reading this. A big thanks to New Lease Music, this is dope!
