Benson Boone is a 21-year-old American singer-songwriter. He has been seen on the TV show “American Idol” and has gained a total of over 5 million followers on TikTok. Boone had his couple of shares with Billboard Top 100 Hits with songs such as “In the Stars” and “Ghost Town” in the 2020s. As of recently Boone has placed No. 1 on Billboard’s Global 200 with his new released single “Beautiful Things”.

Before I heard about the song, I had no clue in the world as to who this man was and what he did to make him seem so important. I searched up Boone’s name on Spotify and “Beautiful Things” popped up. I need some new music in my playlist, so I figured why not give this song a listen. Best. Decision. Ever.

At first when I had heard this song, I thought it was just going to be a cliche country song by your average white boy – I don’t think we can say this…phrase it more politically correct. Instead, this song took me by surprise. The use of the electric guitar to change the tone of the song actually shook me.

Something about this song truly speaks to me; It’s about how Boone got out of a long-term relationship but came to an end.  Boone uses his beautifully sharp vocals to express his love and pain throughout it all and I absolutely enjoyed it. When he sung the verse “And I want to hold you every night/ And that’s a feeling I wanna get used to/ But there’s no man as terrified as the man who stands to lose you,” my heart sunk; For a new, upcoming artist I wasn’t expecting this much emotion into his work.

Boone’s has some very good, strong vocals and I honestly think he’s a very talented artist. It makes sense why he’s so popular. I really wish to hear more of his music sometime in the near future.

About the Contributor
Mikesha Clarke
Mikesha Clarke, Staff Writer
Mikesha Clarke is a junior at Robinson and a staff writer for the Knight Writers. This is her first year on staff. Clarke prefers writing over photography and has always dreamt of being an author. This has been a dream of hers ever since she can remember as she has felt a connection when writing from an early age. Fictional drama draws her attention the most, with her favorite genre being romance. While Clarke does not play any sports, she stays active by walking to and from school each day. “I live nearby and hate driving, so I like to walk to school,” Clarke said. You can always see Clarke with her earbuds in. Walking also gives Clarke the perfect opportunity to listen to her favorite music, which mostly includes K-Pop and R&B. “My number one favorite artist is Nicki Minaj, of course. I would say my second favorite is BTS. I’ve been a fan of them for a long time, too,” Clarke said. Joining the staff this year, Clarke hopes to gain more experience in different aspects of journalism and getting out of her comfort zone when writing stories. "I hope to write a lot of great stories and improve my skills as a writer," Clarke said. In the future, Clarke hopes to be able to write her own novels, particularly about romance. In hopes to pursue a path that would align with her creative self, she hope to attend Full Sail University in Orlando due to its extensive arts programs. (Profile by Gabi Treviño)
