Encore: Benee joins host Stephen Kallao

Last summer, Benee’s song “Supalonely” went viral on Tik Tok and racked up half a billion plays on Spotify. But the New Zealand artist isn’t a one hit wonder – She was named Best Pop Artist two years in a row in her home country. And on her debut record, Hey U X, she channels influences like Radiohead, Groove Armada, and even Grimes, who guests on the album. Benee talks with host Raina Douris and shares a live performance.
