Back in October, R&B’s new favorite Giveon followed up his debut EP with When It’s All Said And Done, and he’s now back with a music video for one of its stand-out cuts. On the project, Giveon continues to tell his side of a love story gone wrong, and in “Still Your Best,” he’s still in denial of what went down:

Are you serious? Are you kiddin’ me? What’s the deal? Oh no, no./ This the one you talking ‘bout that’s supposed to take my place down, is this for real? It’s almost disrespectful./ That’s a downgrade and you know it. Still your best, me, still your best, me./ When you wanna come back?/ I lay you back on your back and do you just like that. Missed the way that I grabbed. Your body knows me, yes. I’m still your best, best, best.

After quietly releasing original music for a few years, Giveon was thrust into the spotlight thanks to his vocals on Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle,” coupled with the release of his own well-loved single “Like I Want You.” The video went on to garner 17 million views on YouTube alone, and the single has reached over 105M US streams to date across streaming platforms, peaking at #16 on the Billboard Emerging Artist chart and #25 on the Billboard Hot R&B Songs chart. Prior to the video’s release, Giveon teased the release of his debut album in a post to Twitter. In other news, the singer could win his first Grammy award thanks to a nomination for Best R&B Album at the upcoming show.

Giveon also recently shared his thoughts about this song specifically, detailing what was going through his mind as he penned the track. Basically, “Still Your Best” is a more ego-driven version of “LIKE I WANT YOU”:

“With me, the way I hang around with my friends and the way we talk amongst the guys, it’s kind of just an egotistical thing—even if it’s all a façade. And as the project carries on, you could tell it becomes a façade. So this was just a coping mechanism to just pretend that you don’t care. It’s kind of like a song I released previously, ‘LIKE I WANT YOU,’ but the other side, the more egotistical level.”
