American Idol dropout, Benson Boone releases “Room For 2” his second single for Warner Brothers/Night Street records.

Ahead of the song’s release this week, Benon wrote excitedly on social media, “I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW EXCITED I AM FOR ROOM FOR2!! I’ve spent a lot of time perfecting this one and it makes me so happy that it’s not a sad song. This….ladies and gentlemen is the first BENSON BOONE LOVE SONG.”

In the song, Benson promises he’ll be there for his love, unconditionally, no matter what. “I’ll be right there with you/every step of the way,” the lyrics go. “When the world don’t feel like home/I’m a place to call your own/You could stay forever through/When you’re barely holding on/I’ll be anything you want/Open up my heart for you/Baby I got room for 2.”

In the video, Benson jumps out of the trunk of a vintage car, which chases him around a beach. Eventually, he accompanies himself on electric piano. Shots of him falling through the air are cut with more car chasing. Eventually, he blows his tormentor up while sitting in a four post bed. But then the car is back…and he opens the trunk… No, the thing in the trunk is not scary!

“LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED BC ROOM FOR 2 THAT I WROTE WITH @jorgenodegard and @plested IS OUT NOW!!!!!!!!!,” Benson wrote after the song’s release. “GO STREAM IT EVERYWHERE ON LOUD SPEAKERS AND WAKE UR NEIGHBORS AND GET NOISE VIOLATIONS AND COMPLAINTS BC ITS FINALLY HERE!!!!!
