Benny Blanco has worked on some of the biggest hits with some of the biggest names in music, but in a recent interview he showed that it’s still awkward with some superstars.
During a recent interview with Zane Lowe, he revealed a few uncomfortable stories about his experiences with Drizzy, including a brief meeting in the bathroom at the Grammys with him. “Drake walks into the bathroom and he’s right next to me at the stall and I’m like, ‘What am I…’ … What am I going to say to him?” he said, noting that he ended up dashing out the stall.
After a decade from their first meeting, the two bumped into each other again at the Grammys not long after. Benny, who had brought his parents, was seated next to Drake and Rihanna this time. His mother sat next to Drake, while his father sat next to Rihanna, – “Then my mom is sitting there and she starts talking to Drake and she’s like, ‘You know, my son makes music.’ And he’s like, ‘Oh, who’s your son?’ And then she was like, ‘Oh Benny Blanco.’ And he’s like, ‘Oh, I love him. Yeah. Set us up. We got to…’ And then he literally switched seats with his dad because I think my mom was probably being so annoying that he actually switches,”
There was 3rd encounter in at a party in “some place that Drake owns”. – “We’re on the dance floor, doing the robot and then everyone’s hating on us at the beginning. And then eventually everyone’s like, ‘Okay!’ And we’re dancing with everyone. We start the party. And then Drake comes in, we have a small interaction,”
