Listening to Brendan Bennett's New Single Won't Be "Wasted Time"
Brendan Bennett's music is ridiculously easy to listen to. The rising pop artist graced us with his uber-relatable party anthem "Rich Friends" earlier this year, and is back with another single that you need to hear. "Wasted Time" is arguably Bennett's most personal release yet, despite his 2018 EP Pop Tracks & Love Songs sparking some serious feels. Produced by Bennett's longtime collaborator Capi and Wxnder Y, "Wasted Time" features a verse from up and comer Supa Bwe, a perfect addition to the already buzzy tune. Bennett has carved out a niche within pop for his sound, and it's a little bit electronic, a little bit hip hop but it's mostly just addicting.
Despite having a relatively upbeat feel, "Wasted Time" is lyrically heavy. Bennett details the evocative end to a relationship, singing,
"Why you actin' up? Gave you all of me and you had enough. It ain't adding up, after everything we did is this how you want to end?"
As most people have experienced heartbreak, the song asks listeners how much time we've spent unable to let go. That being said, the song has a sanguine message about the importance of moments spent with someone we love. Bennett commented on the writing of the song, saying,
"I started writing this song after I left my college girlfriend to move back home and focus on music. I really wanted to highlight the pain that comes with certain sacrifices we make, and to remind people not to consider any time we spend wasted. I wouldn't trade my memories for anything in the world."
There you have it – that relationship you can't get over wasn't a waste of time after all. Give Bennett some streaming love and stay tuned for more from the up and comer.
