Ahnwar Yancey’s recent music video for “Everything U Need” insinuates the importance of having faith in God and setting up one’s priorities straight. The singer-songwriter’s flawless vocal performance, accompanied by the song’s heart-wrenching lyrics and melodies, is a pure celebration of God, His Higher Power, and music.
“Everything U Need” emphasizes family values and managing work-life balance. The video introduces the viewers to verse 1 Timothy 3:4-5, 5:8 (NASB); “But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.” The story unfolds a married couple’s troubles and obstacles. The man almost loses his family because of his indifference and inability to prioritize his wife over his work.
Some of the events depicted are taken from Ahnwar’s own personal experiences. The gospel artist admits that there have been times when he’s been careless to the woman he loves. “Everything U Need” is a way of expressing regret and asking for forgiveness. Ahnwar explains why he chose this path and what music means to him: “I love music. It’s really that simple. It’s that thing I do that never feels like work. I’m up all night producing, writing, mixing, singing, something! And it never gets old or played out. I couldn’t envision doing anything else. Music is a gift given to me by the Lord and I want to use it to inspire, teach and bring Him glory.”
Yancey is known for revolutionizing gospel music. The producer believes that one shouldn’t limit the genre by specific standards. His tracks may deviate from the traditional sound, but that won’t stop him from praising God with his music. Highly inspired by stars like Mahalia Jackson, Donny Hathaway, Luciano Pavarotti, Prince, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Scarface, UGK, Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, Ahnwar will continue to make impactful songs that incorporate different tempos and arrangements, bringing him more success than ever.
