When it comes to remixes, successfully recreating any 90s R&B song takes ambition, let alone a hit like Destiny Child’s ‘Say My Name’. Yet benny mayne managed to do it with the perfect amount of cheeky originality.
Toronto-native benny mayne took a familiar classic and made it his own. While the opening melodies and rhythms remain, mayne’s provocative lyrics and brassy rhymes create just the right balance of old and new. After the opening chorus, benny mayne reveals his signature pop influences. Between his raunchy style and animated instrumentals, mayne found his sweet-spot for R&B covers.
