BENEE: An Overnight Alt-Pop Sensation

Stella Bennett, better known as BENEE, had an explosive arrival to the music scene. The 20-year-old singer-songwriter from New Zealand became internationally known over just a few years, following the release of a handful of singles and 2 EPs. Her 2018 single “Soaked” garnered millions of streams via Spotify and YouTube, and her 2019 single “Supalonely,” was an even bigger hit, reaching the top 100 on multiple music charts.

Perhaps more importantly, her music also became an international sensation on the social media platform TikTok. The song gained popularity on the app after a dance challenge emerged for it, leading to 12.2 million videos being posted with the track, with the most popular videos garnering upwards of 8 million likes.
