Benny Blanco Premieres New Song “I Found You / Nilda's Story” featuring Calvin Harris and Miguel
- American record producer Benny Blanco teamed up with Scottish DJ Calvin Harris again. They released a new song "I Found You / Nilda's Story" featuring American singer-songwriter Miguel.
Benny Blanco and Calvin Harris worked together on "I Found You", which was released last November from Benny Blanco's debut album "Page semi-protected Friends Keep Secrets".
The new track draws about a Guatemalan woman named Nilda, an immigrant feeling violence who is forced to wait for asylum in the U.S.
The music video was premiered on January 4th and directed by Jake Schreier.
Benny Blanco teamed up with Brooklyn Defenders, Raices (an immigration legal services provider in Texas) and the ACLU on the While They Wait campaign, which aims to raise money and garner signatures to help immigrants in the same situation as Nilda.
He said, “Most of us get to do a few simple things everyday … wake up in our bed … know where our family is … know that it’s possible to call them, see them, or even touch them … not have to wear an anklet around their foot for 2 years as they await asylum … and not b petrified to b sent back to a country where u know ur life is in constant dange. Nilda and Keyden don’t have those luxuries … they are human beings… they deserve a good life… just like u and I.”
