Stream Xavier Omär’s New EP ‘Pink Lightning’

Xavier Omar Pink Lightning EP

Rising R&B artist Xavier Omär is back with his brand new EP titled Pink Lightning via Never Sleep Music/EMPIRE. The five-track offering takes fans on a journey through Omär’s many emotions involving love and relationships.

The EP opens with the lead track “Runnin’ Round,” which is about drawing a line between you and your inconsistent love interest. He gets “Stuck” on the second track, where he sings about wanting to be happily together with his lover. On “Change on Me” featuring singer Leuca, Omär hopes his love interest doesn’t change the way she feels about him.

Omär strips away the beat on “The Title” to put an emphasis on just the lyrics. On the beautiful tune, he asks for his relationship to be official. “This record was originally acapella but I then made it into a pop song because I decided not to keep it,” Omär wrote on Genius. “I recorded it to the new beat and actually tried to get it to Sam Smith, but that connect never happened. The only reason this song is on the project is because I played it for some friends at Masego’s house in LA and they were like ‘when does THIS drop?” I had lost the files so I said, “It’s not, I lost the files.” My friend Courtney Bennet said in her beautiful British accent ‘just re-record it.'”

Omär will launch his supporting Pink Lightning Tour on November 28 in Chicago. The tour will hit major cities across North America including D.C., Boston, New York, Houston, Los Angeles and Seattle.

Pink Lightning follows Omär’s 2016 project, The Everlasting Wave, which featured his most popular song to date “Blind Man.” The track has accumulated over 16 million streams on Spotify.

Stream Guordan Banks’ Debut Album ‘Unpopular’

Guordan Banks has been grinding for years as a singer and a songwriter. After scoring a hit with “Keep You in Mind,” the Philadelphia native has finally released his highly-awaited debut album, Unpopular. Led by the single “I Wanna Be Yours,” which has over 1.3 million stream on Spotify, the album includes guest appearances from Sonya Elise and Tdot illdude.

In a past interview with Rated R&B, Banks shared the inspiration behind Unpopular. “It’s pretty much how, for me, I stuck to who I was. I never tried to conform or fit in or be anyone else. I just stayed true to myself and my sound,” he said. “A lot of the same people who love my music now kind of didn’t understand it then. But it’s OK because that’s how things happen. I just want to send a signal that stay true to yourself, believe in who you are, make the mirror your best friend…that’s how you really get to identify with true love within yourself. One day people will see it and you will inspire someone else to be themselves. I think that’s a short story of why I named it Unpopular.”
