"Other Side" - Khamari | Review

The final single for Khamari's debut EP, "Other Side" is a smooth neo-soul track that makes you feel ok about moving on. Wait for Jae Stephens' vocal on the second chorus, stunning.

Other Side brings the narrative arc of Khamari’s debut project into its nostalgic post-relationship state. The final single from his Eldorado EP reminisces back to how they were, how they felt, and leaves the door ajar in case it's worth revisiting. Overproduction from Alex Delicata and Trackside counterbalanced with Jae Stephens’ vocal harmonies, he continues the intimately musical vibe of the project. As a body of work, the full sequence of songs illustrates the rise and fall of love, expectation, and fulfillment.

Khamari's career debuted with a trio of Spotify New Music Friday placements, including a #10 spot with his sophomore release The Heat. His editorial support rounded out as the cover artist for Spotify's Fresh Finds, and further playlisting on Apple Music FEELS, Amazon's The New Black and Breakthrough R&B, and as cover artist for Tidal's Pop:Rising. With over 4 million cumulative streams in his first 3 songs - including 500k in The Heat's first week on Spotify alone - Khamari's first chapter is off to a powerful start.

A multifaceted independent artist, songwriter, and producer, Khamari grew up in the Dorchester neighborhood of Boston, MA. His first project wraps his powerfully earnest songwriting around contemporary sonics, with stellar production from Trackside throughout, as well as his own production. Skilled as a vocalist, pianist, and guitarist, Khamari's music is distilled from influences ranging as wide as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, and Sly Stone, to Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, and Mac Miller.
