American rapper and songwriter, Sergio Giavanni Kitchens, known professionally as Gunna is tapping into his inner certified lover boy this Valentine’s Day by treating his fans to a new song called “Banking On Me.”
“Banking On Me” is officially drop to celebrate Valentine’s Day, after previously teasing the song as part of the “DS4EVER” deluxe edition tracklist.
The song was briefly released in the deluxe edition of DS4EVER which was promptly removed, but not before people could pull the tracks off of streaming platforms.
The song was expected to be released on the normal edition of DS4EVER after a snippet, first previewed on Gunna’s Instagram story, went viral on social media platforms.
It was considered a leak, but is expected to be released in the near future along with the rest of the DS4EVER deluxe.
Gunna fans can breathe a collective sigh of relief, as they’ve finally been blessed with the once-leak, “Banking On Me.” The song, which Gunna previewed on his IG Story a while ago, was originally expected to appear on DS4EVER in some form or another. It eventually appeared on the deluxe edition however it apparently wasn’t meant to be, as the rapper’s team quickly took down the song from the deluxe tracklist. Now, almost a month since the deluxe version arrived, fans have been treated to the official version of “Banking On Me” in time for Valentine’s Day celebrations.
Featuring piano-laced production from Metro Boomin, the track is equal parts romantic and raunchy as the Atlanta rapper serenades a dime piece he doesn’t “want to get tired of.”
“And I usually never say ‘never’/Oh shit, look at me today/Love your vibe, I don’t need no sage/Clip cold and your car look glazed/Good sex, that ain’t all we made,” he croons before things get steamier in the second half.
“Banking On Me” was initially released as part of the DS4Ever deluxe edition in January, but this appeared to be a mistake as the song was quickly pulled from streaming services. Gunna previously played a snippet of it on Instagram.
Gunna is signed to Young Thug’s record label YSL Records, as well as 300 Entertainment and Atlantic Records.
