BenZel: Four (feat. Juicy J + Cashmere Cat)

T-Pain without Auto-Tune, BenZel with Juicy J and Cashmere Cat, Glass Candy's Halloween and more in the music we Tweeted this week

When BenZel jumped on the scene in 2012 with their production for Jessie Ware’s Brownstone cover (and ultimately her last album), fans were surprised to see she’d tapped a previously unheard of talent, but even more stunned to read they were teenagers. Whether Osaka-born Umi Takahashi and Yoko Watanabe’s bio is an absolute truth, one thing is certain: they sure know how to make a modern R&B hit. This time they enlisted rap veteran Juicy J (of Three 6 Mafia fame) and the Norwegian electronic DJ Cashmere Cat for “Four”—a perfect combination of gritty hip-hop (both vocally and lyrically) and smoothed out beats.
