Influencer Couple Symonne Harrison and Nick Bencivengo Share the Story Behind Duet, 'With You'

If there's anything better than the friends-to-lovers trope in our favorite pieces of fiction, it's seeing it happen in real life.

That's exactly what happened between Symonne Harrison and Nick Bencivengo. After becoming best friends through making content, it wasn't long at all before they became a couple, and the rest is history! Today, Nov. 11, the two share another important milestone—releasing their first single together.

The duet, "With You," is a love song that reflects their real feelings for each other, and it definitely deserves a listen. We got the chance to ask them both about the track and how it came to be, so keep reading to find out all about it.

Sweety High: How long have you known each other, and at what point did you start dating?

Nick: Symonne and I followed each other a few years ago on social media and became friends! From there we filmed a few YouTube videos here and there and became close in early 2021. Once we got closer, we immediately began liking each other and started falling in love! We quickly found out that we loved spending time together, so I asked her out in May! It's actually featured in a YouTube video on Symonne's channel—"Telling My Crush I Like Him to See How He Reacts." I asked her to be my girlfriend on a lookout point above Los Angeles. It was a really special beautiful day.


How did this duet come about? How do you think your natural chemistry comes across in the song, and what is your dynamic with each other?

Nick: Symonne was taking weekly singing lessons and asked me if I wanted to write and record a song with her. We thought it would be very really fun to write a song about the story of our relationship. So we trained vocally for months together and had so much fun writing and recording "With You."

We definitely think you can feel our strong chemistry in the song. Our relationship is built on love and trust with one another. We worked really hard on building this singing journey together and recording the song just brought us even closer together.


SH: Who are some of your biggest musical influences? Do you have a lot of musical tastes in common that you could bring together for this track?

Nick and Symonne: We both love music and both like a lot of the same artists.

Nick: My two favorite artists currently are Lil Nas X as well as Jack Harlow.

Symonne: Currently, I've been listening to Bruno Mars, Billie Eilish and The Kid Laroi a lot.

SH: What was the inspiration behind the music video? How do you feel it's representative of your relationship?

Nick and Symonne: "With You" tells the story of our relationship from being best friends to boyfriend and girlfriend. As social influencers, a lot of our life is shown on the internet, so our fans know a lot of us and have shared in a lot of fun Snick moments. We knew that the "With You" music video had to tell our story and highlight some of our most memorable moments together, such as our first date on a helicopter ride. We are just so happy with how the music video turned out and we hope our fans love it too! It is an authentic representation of our relationship as we even share our first on-camera kiss in the music video!


SH: Do you each have a favorite lyric from the track? If so, which ones, and why?

Nick and Symonne: It is super hard to pick a favorite lyric because each line gives a special memory we've shared together.

Symonne: "We can dance through the night because I'm losing time when I look in your eyes." I love that line because when I look into Nicks's eyes, time stands still and we love dancing together.

Nick: "We started out as friends, but you know how the story ends." I feel like fans have watched our relationship evolve.

SH: How do you hope the song makes listeners feel?

Nick and Symonne: We both love music so much and we love singing in the car together and having fun. So we hope that's what happens when someone listens to the song! We want them to feel happy and alive because we made this song to bring a fun, happy vibe to someone's day!


SH: Is there anything else you'd like to add?

Nick and Symonne: We are excited to announce that we will have a Christmas cover coming out in early December. We are so excited to continue making music together.
