Manifestation has become one of the most talked-about trends of the last year, and, whether you manifest to seek comfort, find a new direction or just for your general wellbeing, it is fair to say that it has become a regular ritual in many of our lives. Embodying his personal manifestations into a musical offering, R&B singer Emanuel unveils his new song “Worldwide”. The smooth track, which features minimal instrumentation and stripped-back beats, spotlights the singer’s effortless vocals as its narrative outlines the dreams and hopes he holds. Both enchanting and soul-drenched in nature, the song is the singer self-proclaimed “manifestation mantra” and acts as an inspiration to those who hear it, all the while exuding the sultry sounds that are key in any R&B track.

“‘Worldwide’ is an aeroplane of a song to me,” explains the singer when speaking on the meaning behind the track. “I see it as a way to speak on my deep yearning to show my music and take it all over the world. The song is about a greater purpose, being a world citizen, being able to reach around the world and have something of value to offer, while receiving such richness in return.”

With the track having being produced by Emanuel’s collaborator Bedroom and mixed by the renowned musical engineer Gary Noble, it is made all the more impressive. And, with the singer’s debut album ALT THERAPY set to drop in June and musical domination clearly on his mind, we can expect big things from him very soon.

Read our interview with Emanuel below…

Hey Emanuel, how are you? How has this past year been?
This past year has been difficult and challenging, but it has shown me many things about myself and my resilience.

Talk us through your musical journey, how did you first start your career?
I first started my career the day I decided to record music, falling in love with the process and the final product.

Your music video “Need You” was made collaboratively with Idris Elba, what was this experience like?
It was such an honour to work with Idris, something really special to see the adoration and humility coming from such a legend and giant.

And now you’ve just dropped “Worldwide” which is an incredible single, talk us through the production process and inspiration?
“Worldwide” is an aeroplane of a song to me. I see it as a way to speak on my deep yearning to show my music and take it all over the world. The song is about a greater purpose, being a world citizen, being able to reach around the world and have something of value to offer, while receiving such richness in return.

You cite the song as a celebration and prayer for the future, what made you want to write a song like this?
I like to sing my prayers.

What is it like releasing music during such a tumultuous time?
It has been heartwarming to see people respond and really have special intimate moments with the music. It has been a blessing to still be able to connect in this tumultuous time.

How would you describe your music?
I would describe my music as a conversation. Many stories.

You’ve been honoured with your first JUNO Award for traditional R&B recording of the year, what was your reaction to this?
Being nominated for a Juno is such a surreal experience, I’m still processing. My initial reaction was deep contemplation. My second reaction was pure excitement in telling my loved ones!

You’re also set to drop your debut album ALT THERAPY this June, what can we expect from the project?
More stories, more healing.

What was your mindset going into your album?
My mindset going into the next album is to create and have fun and learn! The same process as the first. I really want to grow as an artist.

What are you most excited for in the future?
I’m most excited to see the fulfilment of the prayer in this song, to really be able to take this thing worldwide and to not stop or slow my pace, until the job is done.
