Kenyan singer and songwriter Benson Mutua, alias Bensoul, is back at it again with another soulful song and we’ve got nothing but love. He captured the attention of music lovers when he released his first song under Sol Generation Records dubbed Lucy. We knew right there and then that he’s one artist that we should keep an eye out for and we were right. Six weeks down the line, Bensoul is back with another soulful song that many of us, including yours truly, can’t get enough of not for any other reason but because it speaks directly to the heart. Titled Favorite Song, the new tune brings to life a moment of in a lover’s life that is filled with happiness, gratitude, adoration and all the good stuff. What struck me most about this song is the instrumentalization. It’s totally out of this world and I’m not exaggerating. If you listen keenly, you’ll hear beautiful guitar strings of in the background. The song has simple lyrics which are easy to remember. Actually, if you listen to Favorite Song thrice you will have mastered the whole song. I’m not even kidding. The chorus goes like, “Darling darling I will sing your favourite song because I’m feeling lucky to have you dance along..to your favourite song.” The video which was directed by KG Brian and Rodney Wachira is very vivid. It paints a real picture in your mind so much so that if you are the lovey dovey type, you’ll find yourself missing a specific person. If you ask me, I think this song will be much bigger Lucy. I can’t help but imagine what Bensoul’s subsequent releases under the stable will be like. We are here for the ride. Watch Favorite Song below and tell us what you think.
