xavier omär afraid cover

Xavier Omär’s second Red Bull Sound Select record asks all the right questions.

San Antonio’s Xavier Omär in two takes with Red Bull Sound Select figured the best way to reach people was to discuss love. The anxiety of it, the closeness and then some. Last week, fans got “Afraid”, a Bizness Boi selection where Omär couldn’t help but be right at the door of love but still uneasy about walking through.

Now he returns with “No Way Out,” the second and final piece of his Red Bull Sound Select suite. The track features D.C.’s GoldLink and is produced by Hit-Boy. Here, Omär is still asking plenty of questions about love, even when he’s centered in a great relationship.

“We all know disagreements and frustrations are going to come in a relationship so this song is really about deciding what your mindset will be in those times,” he told Genius who premiered the track. “Are you afraid of losing or are you determined to win together? I want to win together.”

We’ve all been in a position where a lover makes us toss and turn in wondering the future. “I can’t believe I’m even questionin’/ When I’m with you I am the best I’ve been,” he sings on the track. GoldLink comes in highlighting a classic Baby Bash track in “Suga Suga” to highlight how his woman stays on his mind. This thankfully isn’t Jimmy Cozier’s “She’s All I Got” but Link knows the range of his love goes from rough sex to tender kisses at a moment’s notice.
