The breakout pop star Benson Boone is back with his new, feel good single ‘ROOM FOR 2’. The follow-up to his smash hit debut ‘GHOST TOWN’ (which has amassed over 171 million streams to date), ‘ROOM FOR 2’ finds the 19-year-old in a loved-up mood as he shares his feelings and talks straight from the heart. As fans have come to expect, Benson’s powerful vocals are front and centre.
Over shimmering keys and an emotional arrangement, the newcomer sings about being there for someone he loves. “Open up my heart for you,” he sings, “Baby I got room for 2.” It’s the kind of youthful, wide-eyed anthem that is sure to touch listeners around the world, in the same way that ‘GHOST TOWN’ was embraced by the brokenhearted.
Benson says, “I write so many sad songs about different experiences I’ve had, but I met this girl that’s different than anyone I’ve ever met and she makes me feel like I’d do anything for her. ‘Room For 2’ is basically just a journal entry about this girl.”
Inspired by a friend’s toxic relationship, ‘GHOST TOWN’ was an instant streaming phenomenon, and has so far amassed a staggering 162 million streams The soaring single became his first chart hit in the UK, and it also charted in countries as widespread as Australia, Canada, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, where it reached #1. In the US, it became the rising hitmaker’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100 and continues to climb the radio charts as it enters Top 15 at Hot AC radio this week.
The singer/songwriter, who is signed and mentored by Imagine Dragons superstar Dan Reynolds, delivered a spectacular live rendition of ‘GHOST TOWN’ on ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’ last week. That performance follows another stellar turn on ‘The Kelly Clarkson Show’ in 2021.
With ‘ROOM FOR 2’, Benson Boone proves he’s ready to build on that momentum and to touch the hearts of even more listeners.
