The rising star performed the track ‘Happen To Me’, taken from her debut album ‘Hey u x’. You can watch the performance below.
In the clip, which was released on the same day as her album, the singer toys around with the avatar version of herself, changing outfits, walking aimlessly around her house and more, in a fairly accurate recreation of typical scenes from the game.
“I wrote [the song] about some people I know who seem to be effortlessly cool,” she said. “They always seem to say the right thing.”
NME recently gave ‘Hey u x’ four stars, describing it as “the sound of a pop star who’s resolutely herself”.
“The album’s 13 tracks reflect Benee’s open approach to music, skipping from edgy, futuristic production to the easy-going melodies of ‘Same Effect’ showcases her versatility,” read the review.
“But underneath the consistently catchy choruses, there’s a sense of unease; the jazz-inspired vocal riffs of ‘Night Garden’ featuring Kenny Beats & Bakar paint a picture of paranoia, whilst ‘Happen To Me’ soundtracks sleepless, anxious nights.”
