R&B Music Star Omar Apollo Releases His Brand New Single ‘Want U Around‘ featuring Ruel
The track follows the previously-released singles ‘Kamikaze‘, ‘Dos Uno Nueve’, titled 219 after his area code in his home state of Indiana, and the self-written and self-produced ‘Stayback’
Omar says about the new single: “‘Want U Around‘ is about missing someone who doesn’t feel the same way. After you try everything and it’s still not enough, you know you should give up on that person— but something holds you back from giving up on the idea of being together one day.“
Apolonio features guest appearances by Kali Uchis and the aforementioned Ruel alongside production collaborations with Albert Hammond Jr, Mk.gee, DJ Dahi, and Michael Uzowuru. The project is the follow-up to his 2019 EP Friends, which NPR called “a funky, fresh collection of straight jams.“
The new single ‘Want U Around‘ also arrives ahead of Apollo’s one-of-a-kind concert documentary, live from Prince’s Paisley Park. Airing October 28th, the documentary will feature behind-the-scenes footage of Apollo and his band as they record and rehearse around the legendary estate alongside their performance live from the Park. Tickets are on sale here.
