Benny Blanco joked that he thought he was “dead” after Jay-Z caught him accidentally kissing Beyoncé.
The Lonely producer told Zane Lowe of Apple Music that he was invited to the house of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s Hamptons a decade ago, where he hung out with a powerful couple and other producers.
“I play rhythms and Jay-Z is there and we just drink, chill. He approaches me and moves freely in my ear. And I say, ‘Jay-Z sits here and gets drunk with me while Beyoncé sings little riffs, and he moves freely in my ear. And we will all head to the pool after that, “Blanco said. “It’s these moments, I’m like,‘ How is this my life? “
He recounted how at the end of the night he planned to say goodbye to Beyoncé with a kiss on the cheek, but “missed a bit”.
“I definitely hit the edge of some lip. I said, ‘Oh, my God.’ This is the worst thing in my life, “he said.” And I’m sitting there and while I’m doing it, out of the corner of my eye, Jay-Z is right there watching me. “
“And I look at Jay and I say,‘ Okay. I’m dead. My life is over. It was great. “Nice to meet you,” Blanco continued. “Life shone before my eyes.”
However, the producer of “Eastside” added that “no one noticed” and the accident did not become a big deal.
Blanco wrote and wrote his first hits like Rihanna’s “Diamond”, Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream”, Maroon 5 “Moves Like Jagger”, “Circus Britney Spears” and Kesha’s “TiK ToK”.
Jay-Z and Beyoncé were married in 2008. In the years since Blanco’s trip to their home in the Hamptons, the two have released a joint album called “Everything Is Love” and greeted three children: Blue Ivy, Rumi and Sir.
