[R&B/Pop] Benny Mayne – Bounce

There’s a brand new face – or rather, voice – on the scene that you need to familiarize yourself with. Benny Mayne is coming stacked with releases for 2018, but he’s kicking off things with his R&B jam “Bounce” that just dropped today fresh out of the oven.

“Bounce” is a smooth, sexy single that is sure to make enough noise to really get Benny’s new endeavor off the ground in epic fashion. Benny weaves underground urban sounds together with the subtlest touch of pop for a song that isn’t too hard to imagine on the radio or being plastered across channels like Music Choice or MTV. It’s not easy to dial in such a balance but “Bounce” is an exceptional tune. To show his appreciation, Benny is giving this one away for free, but if you’d like to support his project you may purchase it as well.
