Interesting article about Jamie Scott where also Benny Blanco is mentioned:

Quote
He says almost all of his songs are written with the artists that will record it, but in the case of Cold Water it sat collecting dust for months before they were approached to have Major Lazer, Justin Bieber and MØ record it. It was written by chance when he was in New York with American producer Benny Blanco, who invited Ed Sheeran to the studio.

“It was really hot and his air conditioning wasn’t working,” he says. “We were there sweating. Ed came and we had a bit of food and he suggested we try and write something. He came up with these chords and we wrote this song called Cold Water,” he says. “I think there was another artist that we had in mind to write it for but we just ended up writing it anyway. A year later I got a call from my manager saying that [producer] Diplo had heard it and loved it and they maybe wanted to get Justin Bieber on it.”

Benny has produced a lot on the album Farewell Starlite by Francis and the lights.

I don't really like the vocals a lot, but I focus on the music and it's quite cool.

Also: He has produced the latest Maroon 5 single which will be out in a couple of hours. Don't Wanna Know ft Kendrick Lamar.

 I literally just read another article where Ed Sheeran said he wrote it. He didn't remember writing it, someone else had to remind him that he wrote it. It sounds like a song Justin Bieber could have done years ago. It sounds good but I doubt ed sheeran wrote it.

Since Benny started to work with Magnus he improved his sound SO MUCH.

Zach Sang interviews Benny Blanco.

What a time to play Fortnite, Ilya seems addicted to the game too xD

It gives me the impression that at the end of the interview Zach wanted him to mention Luke or Max, and he didn't so he asked directly and he just didn't add much of what you could expect, he didn't even mention both in his inspirations, but he mentioned Kanye like a lot of times. Kinda disappointing to me.

The video is out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNXDxUQ4c9U

I don't understand his motivations to "become an artist". He clearly doesn't feel comfortable on camera, he doesn't sing and has a bit of stage fright.
Label obligations? It makes sense because he's well established and have the connections... but, really?

Plus, this sounds like a Calvin Harris song. His guitars, the same 909 drums used on One Kiss.
