I know I said I’d chill on the Omar Lye-Fook fan girl stuff but that was before they released they accompanying video for his first single, “The Man.” It starts off with Omar strolling through the countryside and then it gets good when his girlfriend and adorable twin daughters join him for the walk. They even stop to enjoy the playground. I’m guessing the imagery is reflective of Omar being pensive about his life as a man over the years. His family joins him at the point that he’s mentally ready to be the new man that he has become over the years. That’s my guess but I could be reading too deep into it. Anyway, enjoy:
Omar’s first album in seven years, The Man, will be available on U.S. soil on June 18 via Shanachie Entertainment.
