His first album,"85" released in 2006, was a massive commercial success within Iran and with the Iranian diaspora abroad. Also known as his stage name Benyamin, he is one of the most popular pop singers in Iran. Benyamin has released four studio albums and numerous singles so far. He also sang soundtracks for the Movies "Gorgo Mish" and "A Few Cubic Meters of Love" ("Chand Metr Moka'ab Eshgh"). In 2007, a BBC documentary called "Rageh Inside Iran" described him as a "Big Star of Iran" who had sold twenty million copies of his album at the beginning of his career. Although a pop singer, Benyamin often includes elements of hip hop (Biya Ashegham kon) and rap (Kojaye Donyai) into his music and some of the songs in his latest album "94" have English lyrics. Benyamin is also known as "Aghae Eshgh" or "Mr. Love" among his fans because his songs mostly center on romantic themes.

Early life

Benyamin (born as Vahid Bahadori) was born into a traditional Muslim family of Jewish descent and grew up in a small neighborhood in the south of Tehran. He became interested in music ever since he was a child. To honor his Jewish lineage, he chose the stage name Benyamin, derived from Hebrew, referring to the Biblical figure of the same name.

Benyamin's first album was an instant hit; It turned him into a star in a short time. Songs from the first album,"85" include "Khatereha" (Memories), also known as "Donya Dige Mesle To Nadare", "Loknat" (Stutter), "Adam Ahani" (Robot) also known as "Halam Badeh" and "Man Emshab Mimiram" (I Will Die Tonight). In September 2006, Benyamin Bahadori traveled to Sweden to have concerts in Stockholm, which marked the start of his international concerts. Still, he did not perform concerts in Iran until four years later. His second album,"88" was released in April 2009 and sold 500,000 units within a week of its release. It contains a total of 17 songs (most in any of his four albums) and includes popular songs like "Shenasnameh", " Kojaye Donyai" (Where in the world), " Ahay to"(Hey you), "Sedaye Ghalbe to"(Sound of your heart) and "Leili dar Paeiz"(Layla in the Autumn). The third and most anticipated album "93" was released in March 2014 after a long gap of five years with songs like "Ghahve"(Coffee), "Madar"(Orbit), "Hafte Eshgh"(Week of Love) and "Faghat sabine khodeti" (You're just like yourself). His last album,"94" was released in July 2015, just over a year after the release of his third album. This is the shortest period between two albums and it was a pleasant surprise for his fans because the last album took too long to come out. This album has songs like "Eshkal", "Havasam Be Toe", "Track 4" and " Barana" which he sang for his daughter Barana Bahadori. Benyamin has experimented with the addition of English lyrics in his latest album and has received mixed reviews from fans.

His albums are named after the year in which they were released according to the Persian calendar.

Benyamin Bahadori is also noted for his religious-themed compositions like "Agham Agham", "Karbala", "Ye Pahlevon", "Lalaii".

Personal life

Benyamin was driving home, along with Nasim and (at the time) their two-year-old Barana, when the car ran off the road; Benyamin and Barana did not get hurt, but Nasim died hours later in the hospital due to severe injuries. Benyamin released a song called "Ye khoone" (A house), which he sang in memory of his late wife and, according to a post he made on Facebook, took eleven years to complete. The song was released on her birthday, a month after she died. In 2015, Benyamin Bahadori married Shaily Mahmoudi, an Indian-Pathan resident of America.
