Bane has cited Michael Jackson, Drake, Future, PartyNextDoor, 50 Cent, Tinie Tempah and Wizkid as his influences.[10] While talking about his musical style in an interview with Billboard, he said; "In terms of music and artistry, I'm an artist who doesn't belong to a genre. I express myself however I need to express myself. Whether I need to rap about it or sing about it, however, I need to deliver the message, it will be delivered. In terms of genre, I think – no, it's not "I think." I know I don't belong to any genre because, for example, I'll do the "Rihanna," which is a slow, afroswing vibe and then I go and do "Froze," which is more the trap sound – more U.K. drill sound. So it's more about however I need to express it rather than belonging to a genre. It's more – I'm diverse."[13]
