While many are belaboring the so-called death of R&B, there are many newer artists stepping up to keep its flame burning. One of them is rising star Khamari, who recently released his debut album A Brief Nirvana. The crooner also took his talents to COLORS to showcase his skills with a performance of his track “These Four Walls.”
“These Four Walls” is a tender ballad from the perspective of a man trying to make these things work in a relationship though his partner doesn’t seem to want the same. It’s a heartbreaking song with a silver lining, though, as he mentions on the chorus that the four walls that isolate him are much more reliable than she will ever be.
He brings the earnestness of the song’s lyrics to life in his COLORS performance. With nothing in the studio but him and a mic, Khamari performs with eyes closed as he sings and allows the song’s emotion to fill the brown-tinted room. We don’t know about y’all, but we think Khamari might have next.
“These Four Walls” is just one of the 11 songs featured on A Brief Nirvana that showcase the undeniable talent that Khamari possesses. Watch his performance of the song right here and then stream his debut in full below.
