New Zealand pop star BENEE has shared a music video for the song “Happen to Me,” from her debut album Hey u x.
The visual, directed by Charlotte Evans, places BENEE at a feast akin to Leonardo da Vinci’s iconic The Last Supper painting. The Kiwi singer is imagined as a detached, downcast medieval monarch surrounded by her gluttonous companions. This version of BENEE, styled like the Queen of Hearts, does a tarot card reading, ruminating on her fear of death and the very notion of existence.
Other tracks on Hey u x include “Plain” with Lily Allen and Flo Milli, “Snail” and her breakthrough hit “Supalonely.” BENEE performed the last song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in June 2020 for her TV debut.
