The heartfelt single “Emotions” is a resonating entry from Hamburg-based singer/songwriter Amo Jr., the project of Fidelis Amo-Antwi. A solemn piano line complements the initially understated vocals. Twangy guitars and string-laden effects emerge as the one-minute mark approaches, culminating in a soaring vocal emotion. The piano’s gradual evolution, casting a spirited effervescence in its added prancing in the final minute, plays entrancingly through the various vocal layers, resembling a choir at points. “Emotions” resonates with its sincerely emotive qualities and pretty songwriting.
Written instantaneously in the studio, “Emotions” wears its passion proudly, even if the initial intentions were to release something else entirely. “Actually I wanted to release a completely different song, a dance track first,” Amo Jr. explains. “But the video creator I urgently wanted to work with didn’t feel that song. So I sent him a couple of other songs and he picked ‘Emotions.'”
