Emanuel Artistic Visual Take on Music Sparks
This Toronto-born rising R&B star takes a more emotional and passionate approach to his music. He remastered his track “Thought It’d Be Easy” off his first EP Session 1: Disillusion, setting the visual to an acapella version. The song reflects upon the struggle and challenge of moving on from past relationships. At one point in the song, he sings, “I thought it’d be easy to love someone else, but I’m running amuck, and I’m thinking about you.”
This lyric alone puts this pain and attempt to overcome the challenge of remembering past lovers’ times. The visual video displays his time in Los Angelos, as the melodic ballad and heartfelt lyrics demonstrate his true individuality and musicality amidst today’s music industry. Through using a black and white filter to demonstrate his thought returning to the past as if he is reliving it. This creativity alone shows the amazing expectation Motown Records sets upon their signed artist and the types of artists they want to represent their label.
