Benny Blanco x Downtown

There are few songwriters who have completely redefined the sound of pop music over the past decade quite like Benny Blanco has. Having initially signed Benny in 2007, it’s been inspiring to watch the influence he's had, and we are now delighted to reunite with his incredible song catalog.

A two-time GRAMMY Award winner and nine time nominee, Benny is responsible for selling over 100 million albums worldwide. He is also a three-time BMI Songwriter of the Year (2014, 2012, and 2011) and was a 2013 recipient of the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award.

"I’m grateful to have the chance to return to the place where my career started."

- Benny Blanco
