Omar "Love In Beats"
There are not many artists who have been more consistent and true to their sound than the King of UK Soul, Omar (Lye Fook MBE). Since his debut album some 27 years ago, Omar has steadily driven in a lane of his own. On his upcoming eighth album, this legacy continues. Dropping February 27th, "Love In Beats" find the singer continuing on with his unique blend of soul and hip hop with hints of doo wop, jazz, strong touches of his Caribbean roots and, as always, done with a freshness that makes it modern yet classic. The album is produced by his little brother, veteran DJ Scratch Professor and features a stellar list of guest artists including soul music legend Leon Ware, pianist Robert Glasper, UK veteran emcee Ty, soul poet The Floacist, UK soulstress Natasha Watts, Guadeloupe born singer Jean-Michele Rotin, and Cape Verdean singer Mayra Andrade. Another solid creation from the King. Pre-order it below.
