SONY/Orchard/BSE Recordings Proudly Announce the Release of His Debut Album “Living Legend”
SONY/Orchard/BSE Recordings proudly announce the release of the debut album,
“Living Legend” from chart-topping R&B crooner and 2019 NAACP Image Awards nominee for Outstanding New Artist, Omar Wilson. The anticipated 17-song album will be globally available on Friday, March 22nd, 2019, via all digital and streaming platforms.
“Living Legend” is led by the romantic buzz single, “Love Song”, written and produced by Omar Wilson, Louis Humphrey, Jasmon Joyner and Edwin Ramos. The single is currently receiving national radio airplay via Music Choice, SiriusXM, PANDORA and a slew of terrestrial radio stations across the country. “Love Song, speaks about the journey of the ups and downs of being in a relationship, but understanding that regardless of what…we are going to make it happen and hold each-other down,” mentions Omar.
On “Living Legend”, soul-music aficionados will be treated to full-course experience filled with the classic and familiar sounds from yester-year, blended-in with some of today’s hip-hop and R&B flow, sprinkled with love and passion, while wrapped-up in the soulty and raspiness of Omar’s voice. “This project was a year in the making and I wanted to make certain that this album embodied organic truisms of music from the greats of yesterday, while keeping it real for the listeners of today. I wanted this album to showcase the remarkable vocal prowess that Omar is quite unique in delivering. Living Legend will stand the test of time,” says Lou Humphrey – CEO of BSE Recordings.
A few highlights on “Living Legend” includes the introductory song, “Find A Way”. A hard hitting soulful blues song where the movement is reminiscent of classics done by great artists like Aretha Franklin. It’s a story about my up-bringing, watching my families struggle, inspired me to “Find A Way” out of the struggle. The Song “96”, is a Pop/R&B radio-friendly mid tempo song co-Written by R&B Legend Keith Sweat. “96” is about a man in a relationship asking his lady to go back in time to the beginning when the romance was brand new. Then of course there is the rendition of, the classic “It’s A Man’s World”, originally recorded by The God-Father of Soul, James Brown, “I recorded this song with Al Green’s original Hi Records Band in Memphis, TN at Royal Studios. It was a moving experience and a highlight in my career,” adds Omar. “The One”, is a sultry and sensual song with a nostalgic feeling of Marvin Gaye that also embodies various dance elements such as salsa and two-step. This album also includes my latest single “Love Song”, a mid-tempo R&B Groove dedication that confesses the greatest love a man could have for a woman.
