New Music: Xavier Omär - "No Way Out" (feat. GoldLink)
Xavier Omär has me in my feelings once again, but I'm not mad about it. He recently released two new tracks via Red Bull Sound Select, "Afraid" & "No Way Out." My favorite of the two is the GoldLink & Hit-Boy assisted "No Way Out." This song is the perfect concoction. You have Hit-Boy on production laying down some seductive saxophone samples. Then in comes the soulful voice of Mr. Omär himself, crooning about a love that he rightfully refuses to leave. The cherry on top of this already sweet song is a feature from Goldlink (who also just dropped a crate full of gems). His sharp tongued style balances it all out and complements the other two so well, you can't listen to this song just once.
I was still vibing to the last Xavier Omär project, The Everlasting Wave which he dropped in mid October of last year, but as the title insisted, the wave doesn't end. I also had the pleasure of seeing him live in LA for Downtown Soul, a show curated by Soulection back in January. The show was just a confirmation of this man's talents. It was all so natural and his personality lit up all of The Regent that night. Saying that I'm excited for what is to come from him is an understatement. Listen to his two latest drops below and enjoy.
