The Story Behind 'Bets on U'
Giovanni Niubo: "Bets On U" is a concept that I came up with during summer of 2021 when I was at a point in my career where I was in the "in between," meaning I wasn't just starting out but I wasn't anywhere near my goal either, and a few people saw my potential and believed in me enough to help me achieve my dreams. This was something that I wasn't used to. I usually do everything on my own, but for once I felt like people were taking a chance on me—like they were placing their bets on me. I decided to flip it over and write it from their point of view rather than mine, and my producer loved the concept and "Bets On U" was born.
What 'Bets on U' Means
GN: To me, "Bets On U" will always have a special place in my heart because it reminds me of the moment I finally felt seen as an artist. It meant so much to me so I had to write about it. I wanted to make it a fun upbeat song for the listeners, and I hope they enjoy it at any time of their life, during a pool party with friends, or just vibing at home alone while cleaning their room. I just want them to have fun.

Giovanni's Favorite Lyric
GN: My favorite lyric is "I'm feeling kind of lucky and I'm placing all my bets on you," because we've all had that gut feeling about something, that we just know is right, and we can't necessarily explain why—we just feel it. Sometimes it's just the luck of the draw, but oftentimes, it really is a feeling, and I think it's something a lot of people can relate to.
