Benjamin raps over the smooth, mid-tempo track, which was produced by Willie Donut. It speaks about the ups and downs in relationships and the balance between working hard to follow your dreams, while being there as much as possible for your significant other.
He was one of the first male models to compete on the reality competition, America's Next Top Model. "Reality T.V. is crazy,"he admitted. "It was very stressful, and I did not get much sleep, but I'm thankful because it gave me the platform I needed."
His latest single, "Enough" was recently released. "It touches the relationship subject and how we fight, make up, and fight but no one ever wants to walk away. So it's like when is enough really enough," he explained.
Aside from being a model, Benjamin shared that he has always had a passion for music. "I had friends that were actually rappers and they had me come work on music with them and I loved it and never looked back," he said.
On his future plans, he remarked, "I plan on taking the modeling and music to the next level, doing some acting and getting my clothing line, The Societe, off the ground."
He listed Mariah Carey as his dream female duet choice and subsequently dubbed her as "the best." "At the movement, I want to work with Jhene Aiko. Her voice is amazing and I love her style and vibe," he said.
Benjamin has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his forthcoming debut studio album. "I wanted to do something that would let my fans be involved in my project, and get cool things while being involved. At the end of the day, when they invest in it, and it drops, not only can they say that they were a part of making it happen, but that they also got something cool out of it, he said.
