Musician Amani Omar Says "F**k Your Feelings" On His New RnB Track

The song "FYF" is covered in a prevalent unhappy, humming R&B kind of vibe that gives faith and approval, acknowledging that releasing ties makes more sense for both individuals in the long run. Instead, Amani Omar is singing his vocals out to others in similar situations as himself, guiding listeners that your mental health and condition of sanity need always to come first, no matter what the other individual feels about it. Amani Omar understands he has to accept time to concentrate on himself and do what he must do to retrieve and is moving forward without harshness or bitterness. 

Let's get to know Amani Omar below.

1. Describe your favorite and least favorite part about being a musician.

My favorite part about being a musician would have to be the real spiritual connections I make with other musicians. Nothing else feels as genuine as that moment. I also love hearing about how my music affected a listener because it's reassuring that someone is able to connect with someone on that level. My least favorite part would be the creative block that comes with it because it can be unmotivating.

2. Tell us something about your single, "FYF"?

FYF is one of my favorite tracks because it can be used for anyone you no longer involve yourself with. If one day you feel like you’ve had enough you can just tell someone ‘FYF” and send them the song. This song was made very quickly compared to my other songs because my emotion was flowing directly from my mind, to my notes app.

3. Describe your creative process when you write new music.

When I first start a new song, it usually sparks with a sample on Splice and from there I come up with a melody and record it as a voice memo so I make sure I don't lose the idea. Next I record my melodies on Logic and go back over the melodies and fill out the words.

4. Are there any musicians who inspire you? What qualities do you admire about them?

There are many musicians who inspire me, one musician that not many know about would be BEAM and the reason is because of the way he carries his melodies. He is a very versatile artist and watching him in action is always great. Another artist who inspires me would be Capella Grey, he is starting his own wave when it comes to sound and creativity. He moves very organically and has his own team behind him full of creatives who work very well together.

5. Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans.

I try my best to interact with my fans in a very welcoming way so they'll be sure to remember it the best they can. I always make sure to make them smile because you never know what it can do for that person.

6. Which qualities do you think make a great musician?

The qualities that I think make a great musician is being open to all kinds of different sounds. If you are closed minded then you wouldn't be able to see the possibilities you can create. I know for a fact that many of the top musicians have no room to be closed minded.

7. Do you have any weaknesses that you're actively working to improve on?

A current weakness that I'm currently working on would be my consistency when it comes to songwriting. I tend to finish half of the songs because of that creative block but I really know that I'm just getting in my own way.

8. If you were to completely start over again from day one, what would you do differently?

I would learn how to produce! That is something that is a very important skill especially starting off as an artist because you can develop your sound even more when you know exactly what you want to hear.

9. Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to sing as a career?

My advice would be to make sure you have a vocal coach, because having a vocal coach will make it 100% easier to develop your voice.

10. Describe your worst performance. What did you learn from this experience?

My worst performance was actually a 2 hour long gig of some originals and some cover songs, it was a complete drag but luckily I got paid for it. This experience taught me that it's very important to expect the unexpected even in a venue that you aren't too familiar with. Make sure you step outside of yourself and perform the best you can.

11. Amani Omar - is that your real name or stage name? What made you want to use that name as a stage name?

Amani Omar is technically my real name, it just excludes my last name! Amani Omar just flows better than Amani Baptiste for me. I think it's a very memorable name for my audience, it rolls off the tongue.

11. What's next for you?

What's next for me is more and more good music that will touch people's soul. I hope to share my music internationally and become a household name. There are so many creative ideas that I can't wait to execute!
