It’s a tall order to remake a classic like Destiny’s Child‘s iconic 1999 hit “Say My Name,” but benny mayne has risen to the challenge. The track opens with familiar notes and the memorable “Say my name, say my name” vocal hook, but it quickly becomes apparent that this isn’t a mere remix. benny leveraged his lyrical genius in his rework, incorporating phrases like “Ain’t gotta be my lady for me to hit it daily, until you say my name.” This is the raunchier, male-oriented take on Beyoncé and co.’s sassy original.. This year the Toronto-bred, Los Angeles-based artist has made a name for himself through his rhythmic R&B beats and provocative verses with tracks like “attitude“, in collaboration with Jutes, “basic bitch” and “bounce“, so we can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve next.
