Xavier Omär is not playing. In fact, musically, he hasn’t been playing for quite some time now. We’ve kept both his collaborations and his solo work in heavy rotation for years, while he’s been touted as one of R&B’s most precious hidden gems. However, as part of the rollout for his forthcoming album, If You Feel, his steady stream of smoking singles is sure to unveil the true treasure of his talent for all to see. The third single from the project is the lovely ballad “Like I Feel,” which washes over the listener as Xavier floats effortlessly over the D'Mile-produced track. Singer-songwriter Mereba adds extra sweetness as they both sing of the hesitation felt when crossing lines between friendship and romance.
This latest offering follows the tender tearjerker "So Much More" and the smooth summer jam "All Our Time." It seems Xavier is covering all bases both rhythmically and emotionally on his upcoming project. He explains, “This album means finding a moment for every emotion I may have, whether in love, friendship, or how I feel about myself, and allowing myself to fully feel that emotion even if it’s negative. I need to feel the fullness of each emotion to either keep it with me or learn from it.”
Ride this wave of R&B goodness and give Xavier Omär’s “Like I Feel” featuring Mereba a spin below. Add the track to your collection from your preferred digital platform and pre-save the full If You Feel album before its release on October 23rd.
