Benny Benassi taps Lil Yachty for electro-pop soother 'Lonely Nights'

Benny Benassi taps Lil Yachty for a euphoric electro-pop crossover track “Lonely Nights,” highlighting the Italian veteran’s synth house ambiance and the Lil Boat’s inimitable autotune air. The music video, directed by Robby Starbuck, takes the viewer through a lifetime of memories from Lil Yachty and Benny Benassi—from kids soapbox racing to Lamborghini and Ferrari flexes from the rapper and producer pair, carried by a theme of friendship all the way through. The project’s lyrics hone in on mental health challenges, touching on the subject of true friends being an important factor in mental wellness.

Back in 2011, the “Satisfaction” producer collaborated with hip-hop icons Ying Yang Twins, T-Pain, and Chris Brown, on his Electroman project aiming for another genre crossover that fits nicely into the pop rhetoric.
