A need to connect authentically drives every aspect of Benson Boone’s artistry. From his unflinchingly honest lyrics to hand-drawn artwork, there is no buffer between him and the listener. First discovered by Imagine Dragons superstar Dan Reynolds, Boone was quickly signed to Reynolds’ Night Street Records in partnership with Warner Records. His new song “Sugar Sweet” follows the 2022 piano ballad “Before You,” which was preceded by the release of Boone’s Walk Me Home… EP including the hits “In The Stars,” “ROOM FOR 2,” and “GHOST TOWN.” The pop star memorably performed the latter in Norway — the country where he notched his first-ever #1 hit — in front of 50,000 screaming fans. In the US, “GHOST TOWN” became Boone’s first entry on the Billboard Hot 100, entered Top 25 at both Top 40 and Hot AC radio, and has since been RIAA-certified Gold. The 20-year-old has now garnered more than 1 billion global streams to date.
