Static & Ben El – Broke Ass Millionaire

“The most successful band of all-time in Israel” STATIC & BEN EL share their North American debut single “Broke Ass Millionaire.”

Co-vocalists Liraz “Static” Russo and Ben El (Tavori) and longtime producer Yarden “Jordi” Peleg turn up with an infectious international multilingual hybrid of Latin rhythms, reggaeton swagger, African beats, electronic energy, classical scope, and pop ambition. With their runway-ready and future-facing fashion sense, the three-piece present the full package as larger-than-life global stars whose outsized personalities might be just as colorful as their music is.

Defying all categorization, Israeli band Static & Ben El incite the kind of mega-fandom reserved for icons with a string of viral smashes. They hold the distinction of becoming “the most successful band of all-time in Israel,” and were hand selected by Justin Bieber to open for him on his European tour. Static & Ben El garner fans around the globe with over 350M Global Streams, and with over 300M total video views, their breakout single “Tudo Bom” remains “the most popular song in Israel on YouTube.”

“Broke Ass Millionaire” hints at the scope of their sound and style. With its kinetic production and hashtaggable hook, the boys deliver a dynamic anthem.
