JUSTUS BENNETTS SALUTES “GIRLS” ON ENERGETIC NEW ALT-POP SINGLE AND VIDEO
10 JUNE 2022 (TORONTO, ON) — Today, Justus Bennetts celebrates the power of “Girls” on his latest charming alt-pop take. Listen HERE via Capitol Records. The up-tempo single showcases the singer/songwriter’s clever musicality and knack for crafting complex and dynamic choruses. “Girls” arrives alongside a hilarious, role-reversing grandma filled Matt Shaffar directed music video. Watch it HERE.
“Girls” is a gleeful, pop-inflected brazen tribute to the object of Justus’ affections. Over a smooth electric guitar, he offers up an irresistible rhythmic flow about love. “Girls do what they wanna, so if you wanna you can walk all over me,” he sings.
The accompanying visual flips the script with women running the show. Instead of Justus taking charge, the rising artist is targeted by a group of cunning poker-playing grandmas. Their antics overpower Justus. Ultimately, they rob his house and leave him buried in the backyard while they dance with cocktails.

This fresh, humorous take on a love song is a winning addition to Justus’ booming discography. After bursting onto the scene in 2021 with “Replace You,” he followed up with a string of singles including the nostalgia-soaked alt-pop smash “Cool Kids” and his acoustic DIY tune “Don’t Trip” featuring teen hitmaker GAYLE, Justus is cementing his status as one of pop’s most promising and original new artists. Justus recently wrapped up a national tour with GAYLE and has upcoming festival shows looming in the horizon. To date, Justus has amassed nearly 180 million streams.

ABOUT JUSTUS BENNETTS:
Justus Bennetts knows what it’s like to feel alone. Drawing on the uncertainty and insecurity of adolescence, he crafts genre-blurring pop songs mixed with hip-hop and rock that are meant to comfort anyone who’s ever felt out of place or isolated. Across a string of singles—the magnetic “Don’t Trip” featuring teen hitmaker GAYLE, the slow-burning “Nightstand,” the brash, R&B-influenced “Bad Day,” and the nostalgic alt-pop cut “Cool Kids”—Justus has demonstrated a unique knack for reaching people where they’re at. That’s been his goal since he was a “confused kid trying to find my way” in Fuquay-Varina, NC. Thrown into a high school where he didn’t know another soul after a move across the country, he gravitated toward music to process his new surroundings. After working as a car salesman, he decided to take his songs seriously, converting his laundry room into a studio. In that space, his belief that music could be his future was born. Justus has since focused on writing the most captivating opening lines possible, catching ears right away with lyrics that cut deep. He caught the attention of his manager with the punky revenge anthem “Replace You,” and since then Justus racked up nearly 180 million global streams in just a year. But Justus isn’t interested in fleeting success—he wants his songs to resonate. “I just hope people 10 years down the line can still think, ‘Justus makes the most relatable songs,’” he says. “I want to connect with people, and I want people to connect with my music.”
