Singer-Songwriter 96 Delivers Captivating Performance of “Need 2 Know”

96

Independent R&B artist 96 is bringing some nostalgia to your ears with the track release of his track “Need 2 Know.” The single is a sample of Fabo’s “Can’t Let You Go” and the release was accompanied by a live performance of the song on YouTube. The singer-songwriter showcases his vocal abilities while delivering a catchy verse over the familiar melody.

96, who’s based in Toronto, Canada has a few other projects under his belt. As the artist has continued to find his sound over the years, he’s managed to accumulate a supportive fan base and has garnered traction on Toronto. His musical journey began in 2016 and was ultimately inspired by having two of the biggest artists, Drake and The Weeknd, who put Toronto in the spotlight and open the doors for that next wave of upcoming artists.

“Seeing people where I was from do such great things motivated me to go twice as hard,” 96 said in a recent interview.

The new single has a 2000s vibe, which is reminiscent of 96’s other projects and sound. He credits the mix to DJ Chopp-A-Lot, who was responsible for flipping the sample on the beat.

As far as the response to the project, 96 says that “Need 2 Know” has been his biggest release to-date — since his fans have been able to get the song to over 10k streams. As a thank you gift, the independent artist shared the live performance of the song on YouTube.
