Benita is a singer-songwriter based in Toronto, Canada. Not too long ago, she released a rhythmic R&B tune, entitled, “Simple”.

Benita – “Simple” single

“Ooh, I’m tryna be civil. Ain’t no need to be bitter if we keepin’ it simple. You can’t tell me I’m evil. Ain’t no lies, ain’t no filter if we keepin’ it simple. I’m just tryna keep it simple, babe.” – lyrics

‘Simple’ tells an interesting tale of a young woman who prefers to handle things in a civil way with her significant other.

Apparently, he said some things that didn’t sit right with her. Therefore, she goes with the flow not knowing what their future holds.

‘Simple’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and vibey instrumentation flavored with contemporary R&B and neo-soul elements.

Benita – “Simple artwork

“‘Simple’ is about balancing your emotions with someone you’ve had a past with. Think of that movie ‘No Strings Attached’. There is an agreement that things will be civil between you two but the other person tends to creep back up and try to bring up the past when you are in a completely different place. This song is about staying true to your feelings and not giving in so easily just to please someone even though at times you might miss the good times with them. There is no going back to how things were so they’ll just have to accept it.” – Benita

Benita stands for self-empowerment and self-worth. Her debut single, entitled, “Anything”, has won over music fans with boldness and persuasion.

One of her most memorable accomplishments came when she shared the stage with fellow Canadian Daniel Caesar, singing backup vocals on a string of sold-out shows.

Also, she had the pleasure of opening for Kehlani alongside TRP.P at the 2018 Pride Festival in Toronto.
