Play “Benji” below.

Here we are. It’s 2016. Social media has made us more anti-social than ever. Seems like monogamous relationships are a thing of the past. When seeking true happiness, it is often times associated with a comma count. But hey, all hope is not lost because instead of relying on a human being, Liana Bank$ has found the perfect solution to curing her 21st-century blues. “Benji” reveals we’ve been searching for love in all the wrong places. Bank$, on the contrary, knows what she wants in a partner. To point out, there are few attributes listed. Crispy, green, and (coincidentally) born on January 17.

Uniquely “Benji” finds the Queens-bred singer-songwriter finesses her pop-meets-rap vocals, in a modern day tale about the love of money. “Benji” gives a real sense of women’s empowerment. Particularly, if you aren’t meeting her requirements, then you gots to go. No, if, ands or buts about it. Ain’t no broken hearts club over here, honey.

Miss Bank$’s personality really shines through on “Benji.” Easily this song could have come across as cold-hearted but she flipped it with her happy-go-lucky lyrics, accompanied by her nothing-can-stop-me demeanor.

That is to say, she is living proof that money can buy you happiness because this upbeat tune will make you shake your tail feather. You are bound to sing along. In the event that, you may daydream about Mr. Franklin too.
