Benjamin Elia$ – “OTW”

“OTW” is the alluring opening track from Benjamin Elia$‘ new album On The Way, a quality showing of soulful hip-hop from the Tel Aviv-based artist. Glistening keys and narrative-friendly vocals are accompanied by sporadic bursts of female vocals, adding an angelic tone to the reflective, string-laden lead. The “I don’t got nothin’ but you,” hook plays with soulful charm, the overall production reminding fondly of Tyler, the Creator. Funky synths and guitar interplay help cap off this delectable opener. Stream the rest of the album below:

“OTW” and other memorable tracks released in July can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of July 2020’ Spotify playlist.
