Benny Blanco has produced some of the biggest pop hits over the past decade. The hitmaker is the brands behind “Diamonds” by Rihanna, “Tik Tok” by Kesha, “Love Yourself” by Justin Bieber and so on. So it’s no surprise that his new track has ‘smash hit’ written all over it, too.
Well, firstly, “Eastside” features two of pop’s hottest talents, Khalid and Halsey, lending their silky smooth vocals. And secondly, the track carries an infectious beat. “My love is yours if you’re willing to take it / Give me your heart ’cos I ain’t gonna break it,” the pair harmonize on the chorus, telling a tale of a love worth absconding for. “So come away, starting today / Start a new life, together in a different place.”
And did we mentioned that it’s got a star-studded production, too? Apart from vocals, Blanco also roped in friends Ed Sheeran and Cashmere Cat to add their golden touches to the song.
