BENEE IS SUPALONELY


Stella Bennett, aka Benne, the 20-year-old singer/songwriter from New Zealand didn’t have social distancing in mind when she came up with her viral hit Supalonely featuring Gus Dapperton. She penned the upbeat track laced with comic expression of self-pity during a songwriting trip to LA last year. With lyrics like “La La La La La I’m a Lonely B****” the song has morphed into an unintentional quarantine anthem. Benne says… “I wrote it about my breakup, but now everyone’s relating it to being isolated and not being able to see friends. I guess we’re all lonely b****es now.”

I believe as long as we have music we’re never alone, so I’m wrapping you in my musical blanket to help make your weekend soar! I’ve been working on a custom HK remix of Benne’s Supalonely as well as remixes on chart toppers from Billie EilishblackbearCamila CabelloRoddy RicchMaren MorrisLauvFive Seconds Of SummerTaylor SwiftDoja CatJustin Bieber with QuavoSza Justin Timberlake.

MUSIC MORE POWERFUL THAN MEDICATION?


Studies suggest music can be even more powerful than medication. Research shows that listening to music can improve immune functioning, cognitive performance and endurance. It can reduce anxiety, decrease pain and make you feel happier. Mayo Clinic says, that “listening to music is a good stress reliever because it provides a mental distraction, reduces muscle tension and decreases stress hormones”. They go as far to say “Crank up the volume and let your mind be absorbed by the music”. Oh yeah …I’m gonna be crankin’ up the volume this weekend on In The Mix with HK™. Get ready for exclusive HK remixes on hits from Billie EilishLewis CapaldiDemi LovatoblackbearJustin BieberTrevor DanielCamila Cabello and Doja Cat.
