Benjah Takes Urban Fusion Viral with New Music Videos


On the heels of Benjah’s heavily viewed “Walkin’ Out” music video comes the official music video for his latest single “Jezebel.” Shot on location on a private island off of Florida’s Gulf Coast, the Dove Award winning and GRAMMY® nominated artist and producer continues to make waves with the latest music video from his new album The Break-Up (Jahmen/220/Universal). Both videos can be viewed at his official Facebook page at www.facebook.com/benjahmusic.

The Break-Up, which was released on September 27th, features guest performances by Rachael Lampa, Group 1 Crew, Dillavou, Andy “C-Lite” Mineo, Ron Kenoly, Jr. and more.

Benjah just completed a fall run with Hawk Nelson, Fireflight, Superchick and others on the Music with a Mission Tour, taking his refreshing blend of hip-hop, R&B, reggae and power pop to live audiences nationwide.

“The Music with a Mission Tour was such a great experience for me,” says Benjah. “Normally I work within the Urban/Hip-Hop world, but sharing the stage with a bunch of rockers really stretched me and my fan base. My music and I really stuck out, but in a good way. The fans and all of the bands showed me a lot of love!”

Benjah produced and was featured on Lecrae’s GRAMMY® and Dove Award nominated album Rehab, and he took home a Dove Award for producing/writing with Group 1 Crew. More recently, he produced and was featured on Tedashii’s new album Blacklight, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Christian Albums Chart.

We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.

HM Magazine Turns 35

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
