There’s something about the UK that has kept me hooked in terms of music, I couldn’t quite put my finger on it before but after watching Courtney Bennett’s music video for “Motives,” I’ve finalized realized what it was.
Don’t know who she is? Well, M.I.A, Big Sean, Erykah Badu, Missy Elliot and Raekwon know her name.
The West London singer does what she loves; sings, and with no agenda, she shared her gift with the world. Little did she know that her interpretation on classic and modern hits would be listened to over 5 million times on YouTube and see over 60,000 people subscribe to hear more.
Having sung her favorite tracks for so long, the Bennett has finally grown wings of her own and releases her debut, self-penned single Motives, taken from her forthcoming EP He(art)Dealer.
The beat is smooth, dope and laid-back with quirky futuristic synths mirroring the classy, elegant tone and lyrics of Courtney singing, before she mixes it up with a skippy, fast flowed rap verse, displaying the flair and aptitude she has cultivated.
