Earlier this year, Sainvil shared his most recent single “California Raindrops.” He continued his momentum by dropping off another cut for fans to enjoy, and this time he recruited Guapdad 4000 for the assist. The freshly released “Ashley” sees Sainvil celebrating his love for Black women as he surrounds himself with beautiful dancers and makes sure the focus is on them. On the song, Sainvil delivers his lyrics he wrote about someone he’s been longing for in real life:

I want Ashley, her sister Sherly, dark brown skin, girl you so pretty (So pretty)/ I’m just asking, hope I’m worthy (Hope I’m worthy)/ To be nasty, but don’t do me dirty (Uh-huh) okay, let’s let loose tonight, shawty/

You look forward to tonight’s party, whatever come up, I know you’re about it/ Babe, don’t you worry bout the fire, I got it. You ain’t gotta worry about nobody, copy/ Any time you start to feel choppy stop me

The song is inspired by and named after someone who is truly on Sainvil’s mind. “I named the song after a crush I had on a gorgeous girl named Ashley when I was a kid,” said Sainvil in a statement about the single. “This song is about appreciating and uplifting the Queens that teach, love, protect, and fight for us Black men. Something they can have fun getting dressed to all summer, but ultimately celebrates and disarms colorist notions among a group of beautiful people.”

Guapdad’s newest 1176 collab album includes 14 tracks and and features from names like frequent collaborator Buddy, Tish Hyman, and P-Lo. Leading up to the official release, Guap dropped off the “How Many” visual from the project. He also repped his city in the best way he knew how on “Oaklandish” alongside Rayven Justice and the Bay Area legend Too $hort. In addition to that, he dropped off his street racer “Alpha” music video and swiftly followed up with a hilarious video for its official remix featuring Bfb Da Packman.
