John Benitez (born November 7, 1957), also known as Jellybean, is an American drummer, guitarist, songwriter, DJ, remixer and music producer of Puerto Rican descent. He has produced and remixed artists such as Madonna, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, and the Pointer Sisters.
Benitez scored two pop hits in the U.S. in the 1980s from music produced and released under the Jellybean moniker: “Sidewalk Talk” (US #18), written by Madonna and featuring Catherine Buchanan; and “Who Found Who” (US #16), featuring Elisa Fiorillo. He has, however, placed nine songs in the Top Ten of the U.S. Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart, including three number ones. Other vocalists that have performed on a Jellybean release include Adele Bertei, Richard Darbyshire and Niki Haris. His 1984 cover of Babe Ruth’s “The Mexican” (for which he recruited the vocals of its original singer, Janita Haan) is regarded as a pivotal moment in the electro-hip hop underground scene, and was his first number-one single on the Hot Dance Music/Club.Play chart.
