Commercials or songs written for promotional reasons are usually horrible in every way: lyrically, visually, and musically. But Mercedes-Benz got the use of advertisement as art so right this time.
The expensive car makers re-did Janis Joplin’s song “Mercedes-Benz” with a modern neo-soul twist called “Benz.” They created this sonic magic with American rapper, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]David Banner[/lastfm]; British soul diva,[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] Estelle[/lastfm]; and virtually unknown geek-chic soul singer, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Daley[/lastfm].
Yes! We’d seriously listen to this song on the regular, even if it was made for a car company to promote their vehicles with. It’s so good! Plus, Daley is amazing and we hope we becomes huge.
Do you feel like shakin’ your tambourine and buying a Mercedes-Benz? We do!
We are also super excited that Estelle is coming back on the scene with tracks like “Break My Heart!”
