Last year, Sainvil treated his fans to an EP and also his collaboration with Melii “HBK.” He’s now back with his first offering of 2021. Over some spacey production, Sainvil airs out his frustrations on his new song “Need 2”:

Why you showin out for all these people? The same one’s that wasn’t on the previews. Even though you know I got to see you. I need to, I need to, they called my old bitch back won’t hear from me. This one bitch now, been fuckin’ her for days. She told me that I am her escape. Quit playin’ now so we can run away.

Produced by Eightsarewild, the emotionally-charged track is about knowing when enough is finally enough. “‘Need 2’ is about the moment right before you decide to let go of someone you love. That mental push and pull before the inevitable end,” said Sainvil about the song.

In October, Sainvil released his 2020 Was Hijacked EP and the seven-track project included guest features from Boogie and Melii. After that was the video for the aforementioned “HBK.” The accompanying MARZ-directed visual sees Sainvil and Melii battling to fight the tension between them, but they ultimately give in at the end and they can’t help but to let their inhibitions go. “HBK” stands for Heartbreak Kid, which is a reference to the famous professional wrestler Shawn Michaels. Via press release, Sainvil states the song’s title and video are a metaphor for the guy who desperately wants to be emotionally unattached as well as belong to the streets, but in actuality, he just wants to devote to that special someone. Hailing from Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood, Sainvil became the First R&B artist ever signed to Alamo Records in 2019.
