Benjamin Ingrosso – “The Dirt” music video
“Back in the days, they used to call me a criminal. Running from the police, hanging with the homies. Got in my way, getting high of the chemicals. I was only 16, kicked out on the streets. My mama told me, ‘If you wanna make it, you better figure out your life before they take it.’ Yeah, my mama told me, ‘You gotta get smarter or you’re gonna end up in a cell just like your father.'” – lyrics
‘The Dirt’ contains a relatable storyline, ear-welcoming vocals, and rich melodies. Also, the likable tune possesses groovy instrumentation scented with a lite electro-pop aroma.
‘The Dirt’ was written by Benjamin Ingrosso together with Hampus Lindvall (Zara Larsson), Markus Sepehrmanesh (Erik Hassle), Valentin Brunel (KUNGS) and Didrik Franzén. The song follows on the heels of Ingrosso’s highly acclaimed #1 debut album, entitled, “Identification”.
“This is the first song I am releasing where I get to tell a story, that’s not about me at all. But I love it and hope everyone will get in the mood to dance.” – Benjamin Ingrosso
Benjamin Ingrosso is currently one of the most exciting names in the Swedish music export. So far, his music has accumulated over 225 million streams and 2.7 million listeners per month via Spotify. Also, he has gone Platinum (5x), Gold (9x), and received a Swedish Grammy nomination for ‘Pop of The Year’ 2020.
With most previous singles, “Happy Thoughts” (with Felix Sandman) and “Costa Rica”, Ingrosso is yet again proving his musical diversity. During the fall of 2019, he announced his headline Scandinavian tour where the shows in Norway sold out in minutes. In November, Benjamin played at Berns in Stockholm as a part of his tour in front of a sold-out crowd of over 1,200 people.
Not too long ago, two lovely remixes of “The Dirt” by German DJ/production duo YouNotUs and Swedish DJ Nevada were released.
