Benny Blanco is part of the Pop-Rap undercurrent that nobody speaks of, but people in the know, understand his place in the game. So when it came time to produce something of his own, all heavy-hitters in the game were quick to add their name to the project. On “More / Diamond Ring,” Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK share the spoils, as the key “vocal” contributors – a choice that works on so many levels, given both singer’s disparate taste buds. But of course, the song’s thematic layout is not theirs to choose. FRIENDS KEEP SECRETS is Benny Blanco’s chance to play the architect, while he has our attention.
FRIENDS KEEP SECRETS comes to us at the stroke of midnight in the US Market but is already “streamable” overseas due to time difference in the Oceanic corners of the globe. The 7-song project is set to include “More / Diamond Ring” as well as 6 other slow burners pieced together by the rest of the IT crowd – members include: Swae Lee, Khalid, Calvin Harris, Halsey, and Juice WRLD.
