JUNO Award nominated R&B artist Emanuel shares new single ‘Worldwide’ + Lyric Video

Canadian R&B phenom EMANUEL‘s latest single ‘Worldwide’ captures a time when dreams were still dreams – before his music was streamed millions of times around the globe and his talent was admired by fans and critics alike.

Created in his producer/collaborator Bedroom’s basement, Emanuel recalls that the lyrics “floated up to the surface” as ‘Worldwide’ spontaneously took shape: “During that time, we were really dreaming out loud in the way that we would talk about our futures and in the way that we were trying to summon this grand reality. This song was really born from the deep want to take the music to the world.” Years later, ‘Worldwide’ has morphed from a manifestation mantra into a song of celebration and a prayer for the future.

“This past year has been a great learning experience for what it means to really manifest something and be appreciative of the things you’ve been able to uncover and draw from within yourself and make reality,” says Emanuel. “But even though we’ve manifested certain aspects of the song – and that’s a beautiful thing – it still wants to be seen out in its fullness. ‘Worldwide’ is a song of affirmation and it’s become a prayer to be able to continue until all of those goals are met in their completion.”

The dream to connect with people in the cities and countries he sings about is still very real for Emanuel since the pandemic has prevented him from bringing his music to stages around the world. “It’s wild to me how prophetic music can be. I’m still imagining going to those places, smelling the air, performing in front of crowds, and being able to truly live out what the song is talking about: to be able to take the message, the energy we bring, the light we’ve been blessed with; to be able to share that while also being open to receiving wisdom and exporting that back so we can enrich the places we’re in. That beautiful exchange, that’s the heart of it.”

Mixed by Gary Noble (Amy Winehouse, Nas, Public Enemy), “Worldwide” is the final glimpse into ALT THERAPY, Emanuel’s inaugural full-length project, before the album makes its eagerly anticipated debut on June 16th.

Earlier this Spring, Emanuel was honoured with his first JUNO Award nomination. His critically acclaimed debut EP Session 1: Disillusion has been nominated for Traditional R&B/Soul Recording of the Year which will be awarded at the 50th Annual JUNO Awards this June.

Isaac B Returns With Single, ‘Love Yourz’, Off Upcoming EP ‘Chances Ocean’

Following his appearance on the blog with the video for single ‘SNE HNE’ – which bagged the Music Video of the Month title back in December –  transatlantic MC, ISAAC B returns with single, ‘Love Yourz’, a thoughtful and inspiring number which reflects on life’s struggles and growth in self-love and perseverance.

Isaac B says “I wrote ‘Love Yourz’ in a sunken place, without direction I battled myself, but found hope in my fellow artistic comrades and collective communities. The track title intends to pay homage to ourselves, “Love Yourz” – It’s a celebration for everyone, everywhere. This time here, is just the beginning of our journeys, while we manifest the fruits of our labour to come.”

Cutting his teeth in the Florida rap cypher scene, Isaac B developed a knack for his spontaneous freestyle wizardry, often venting frustration at humanities systematic behaviours. Influenced by Xxxtentacion, YBN Cordae and Kojey Radical, the dual-heritage artist moved to the UK in 2013 where he now fronts the biggest Underground Hip-Hop nights in South London with his collective And What? Ldn.

Unpretentious and poetic in its delivery, ‘Love Yourz’ sets the tone, with its lyrically charged hooks and melodic instrumentation, for his upcoming EP,‘Chances Ocean’, due for release this summer. Have a listen below…
