If you haven’t already heard of emawk, you’re really missing out on New York’s finest. The multifaceted artist has steadily built up an organic following for the past few years, and we’d say all of his hard work has truly paid off. As he continues to turn heads left and right, emawk delivers his introspective new single, “ACOUSCOUS.”
With insanely gorgeous melodies paired with soothing guitar plucks, “ACOUSCOUS” is a slow-burning offering that showcases the best of emawk’s R&B cadences. For those of you who’ve ever felt misunderstood, “ACOUSCOUS” is an excellent source of comfort and reassurance. To top it off, the accompanying visual follows two Black men dancing their way through life’s hardships.
On “ACOUSCOUS,” emawk reflected,
“’ACOUSCOUS’ is about one of the ways I’ve learnt to process feeling misunderstood/misjudged. Sometimes I’m able to take it lightly, know that I’m okay, and not take outside negativity to heart. I’m still learning how to let go of what I fear others think about me. Much love to Zach Ezzy (who produced ‘ACOUSCOUS’) and my manager Lewis who encouraged me to finally finish this song. If it wasn’t for the two of them, it would still be chilling on my laptop.”
