After ringing in the New Year with the release of ‘Further Up (Na, Na, Na, Na, Na)’ – with Pitbull, things are looking bright for the Israeli duo, STATIC AND BEN EL. Following an invitation to do a Live in Studio performance on two of America’s most popular TV shows: Good Morning America (GMA) and “Live with Kelly & Ryan,” they are set to headline for their first US 2020 performance at the prestigious Sony Hall in Times Square in New York City on the evening of February 26, 2020.
To be chosen by Saban Music Group (SMG) for their first music release — including a special appearance by ‘Mr. 305’ — means that something special is in the works. ‘Further Up (Na, Na, Na, Na, Na)’ pushes the envelope by combining catchy lyrics with a music video that exhibits a delicate balance between dazzling visuals and an electric club vibe. The track, which already boasts over 17 million views worldwide to date on YouTube, has also secured a Top 10 spot on the US VEVO charts and has reached the #1 spot on Radio Disney. Thanks to its fast-paced rhythm, the song also tallies over six million Spotify streams and shows no signs of slowing down. In addition to all the success, ‘Further Up (Na, Na, Na, Na, Na)’s Latin version, “Subelo” Featuring Chesca has just impacted Top 10 on the US Latin Billboard Charts and was also ranked #10 on Shazam’s US Discovery Chart. Since its debut, the single has been featured on some of the world’s most prestigious media outlets, including Billboard, Variety and The Hollywood Reporter.
The duo, composed of singers Leeraz Russo (STATIC) and Ben El Tavori (BEN EL) plus musical producer Yarden Peleg (Jordi) continue to weave their path in the competitive music landscape. Aside from their latest hit, STATIC AND BEN EL have amazed audiences at the Wow Festival in Tel Aviv, with their electric performance of ‘Tudo Bom’ along with J Balvin. They are also the returning judges on the 4th season of the popular televised Eurovision Singing Competition in Tel Aviv.
‘Further Up (Na, Na, Na, Na, Na)’ and STATIC AND BEN EL made history earlier this year after becoming SMG’s first music release.
