One of the best new vocalists emerging on the R&B scene, singer-songwriter Emanuel has released a music video for his critically acclaimed single ‘Black Woman’. The slow-motion, artistic shots of black women provide the main sequence of the video, interspersed with scenes of Emanuel singing his homage. The video is in perfect accordance with the song, striking a bittersweet note. With the soaring strings, goosebump-raising vocals and now an elegant music video, Emanuel’s ‘Black Woman’ plays a touching and necessary tribute to black women everywhere.
Emanuel specialises in creating art that is seemingly simple at first glance, but contains so many complexities beneath the surface. The R&B prodigy is the first Canadian to join Spotify’s emerging artist program, ‘On The Radar’, a program whose alumni includes Rex Orange County and Jorja Smith. Emanuel only made his debut earlier this year with the breath-taking single ‘Need You’ that has now attained over 3 million streams on Spotify alone. Having worked with big names such as Idris Elba and been accredited by Apple Music and Amazon, Emanuel is an artist on the rise to superstardom and it feels like a privilege to witness his journey.
