This may be a historical first: a club banger about not wanting to dance. On the latest single and solo Booth debut from Italian EDM heavyweight Benny Benassi (previously featured alongside Chris Brown on Beautiful People), a heartbroken John Legend declines to step out onto the floor, insisting, “I can’t Dance the Pain Away.” But I have a feeling he’s going to the only one—I defy you not to start tapping your foot, or at least nodding along, once the beat drops. This promo single isn’t part of a larger set, but those digging it can watch our pages for more club-ready cuts from Benassi and his impressive cast of connects. In the meantime, why not take a listen to Legend’s latest feature, the Kanye-coproduced Made to Love?
This is the first song featured on DJBooth from this artist. If you would like to hear more, be sure to rate and comment!
