LA-based, Aussie artist Benji Lewis help us snap out of shitty headspace with new R&B single “Fast Forward.” Dipped with nostalgia, the track radiates a warm retrospective tone where Benji beckons us for some me-time to change our perspectives. Co-produced with Kid Froppy, “Fast Forward” is a taste of Benji’s upcoming EP Here, Then And Now:

Speaking of the track, Benji shared:

“We started ‘Fast Forward’ towards the end of 2018 and finished it off in early 2019.We got to talking before that first session and he said something to me about looking more inward, in regard to himself and his life. Almost instantly the opposite play on words ‘Inwards, Outwards’ came to me, and then the rest of the song came to me quite easily and effortlessly. This song is about getting out of a certain state of mind. Not wanting to think about or look at a current situation, relationship or particular person right now. We are never really stuck, and my subconscious was telling me this while I wrote the song. I was feeling like some much-needed alone time and craving change. I was listening to a lot of H.E.R. and Sabrina Claudio at the time. I’ve always loved R&B music and that’s just what we ended up creating with this one. It feels sexy, natural and honest to me. After creating this song with Kid Froppy, I knew that I wanted to create my next body of work with him as well.”
