Song of the Day: UK artist Villz enlists NorthSideBenji for “1000 Nights”
Our Song of the Day is the recently released “1000 Nights” single from East London rapper Villz.
Featuring budding Toronto rap star NorthSideBenji, the video for “1000 Nights” premiered on popular UK platform GRM Daily on Dec. 22, and has racked up over 150K views since. The song has put up another 20K streams on Spotify, with plenty of views on other outlets as well.
While Benji released his critically acclaimed Frienemy EP back in September, he was also featured on several other projects to close out 2019. He appeared on Neena Rose’s “Secret” single, alongside M Huncho and Hoodlum on Swedish prodcer GRXGVR’s “Stick” single which came out in November, the new 6ixBuzz playlist NorthernSound, and a feature on Just John and Dom Dias’ 9-track release, PROJECT.
From appearing on Charlie Sloth’s Fire in the Booth, and building with various others from across the pond, “1000 Nights” is likely just the latest in many more collaborations Benji will make with other UK artists.
Meanwhile, Villz continues to promote his collab with Benji but also dropped a new track on Jan. 5th called “Need More.”
