Omar follows “The Man” – his breakout single from the forthcoming LP of the same name – with “Come On Speak To Me”, a samba driven anthem about luring a potential lover. Omar is making sonic decisions with this record that follow his tradition of ridiculously good production, but somehow step above what he has groomed audiences to expect into a stage of experimentalism and exceptionalism that could stand to revolutionize the modern approach to soul music production. This time he puts Brazil in a bottle and launches it into orbit. If nothing else, Omar’s new music is likely to drive a few hold-outs back to the land of live instruments and a little more imagination. Drawing from the myriad of influence all musicians channel, he drops a joint that is distinctly Omar and undeniably dope. Check the track below. Stay tuned for more from Omar.
