Produced by SNARE, the duo encapsulates a heartfelt piece composed of the 19-year-old emcee’s emotional struggles in a relationship, delivered in his trademark quick rap style with a punch. Apart from that, the melodic piano playing creates a dramatic theme and feel that provide a suffice layer on top of the song’s meaningful message.
“I think that with how young our generation may be, many of us have unrealistic expectations of relationships. The song mainly talks about me trying to get a girl that doubts me, and I’m just really tryna say let it go and trust me on this, I’m not some other guy who doesn’t know what he’s doing,” Trev shared.
Trev takes inspiration for his work in many names of high artistic caliber such as BROCKHAMPTON and Meechy Darko. As an avid listener of rappers J.I.D. and JuiceWRLD as well, Trev’s willingness to sing and explore newer avenues of expression can be noticed in the track.
