thuy‘s “trust (feat. RINI)” is the perfect outpour of understanding, patience, and vulnerability. Mirroring the depths of love through a dialogue fashion and a complimentary visual, thuy urges her love to let his guard down. In a soft, lush pitch, she demonstrates her sincerity and adoration. The warm, light R&B production is a perfect pairing for thuy and RINI’s registers.
Promising this twin flame that their heart is safe in her hands, thuy sings
“You can put ya trust in me if you choose/Hard on yourself/I know you can’t help it/I’m finding myself in you/How do I/Make you realize/I’m a stick around/If it’s with you, you, you.”
RINI sings from the beau’s POV in an ethereal vocality. Hesitant to jump the gun in their relationship, he expresses a desire to take things slow.
“Said I’m taking my time with you/Never wanna put pressure on you (I don’t)/But I’m just tryna make you understand that no man is an island.” Although their connection is strong on the surface, he wonders if what they have is real.
“I’m ready to give you everything/But I don’t know if you are ready to do the same,” he sings. “Don’t matter to me how long you take, (no it don’t matter)/No one knows you like I do (I do).”
thuy assures him that she’s not going anywhere. Should her soulmate give it a go, she’s giving him 100%.
The music video, directed by Edgar Daniel, shows rat footage of striving couples expressing their love for one another. This significant footage shows viewers that “a life lived in love will never be dull,” as said by Leo Buscaglia.
thuy says, “RINI’s smooth falsetto and heartfelt lyrics add a beautiful male perspective to this duet.”
She continues, “This song was truly a perfect fit for the both of us and we had such a great time creating this together!”
RINI expresses the same feeling about collaborating with thuy. He says,
“I’m so so happy I got to be part of this beautiful song. It’s the perfect summer jam. The visual really speaks to me, and I know it would do the same for a lot of people who are in relationships. Thank you thuy for creating this gem with me.”
