Some voices just blend together perfectly, smoother than a blender. Omar Apollo and Ruel did a song together, and can we just say it’s heaven? We mean, two very soulful artists combining their talents to create something beautiful together- what’s not to love?
The song is called ‘Want U Around’ if you could tell by the slight clever word choice in our article title. It’s from Omar’s project that’ll be out this Friday on October 16, which we can be excited for in its own right, but right now is about ‘Want U Around.’
On the first listen, we were kinda like, “Wait, Ruel only has vocals on the bridge and ending?” But that’s not the case; he has gorgeously smooth background vocals throughout the song that just so happen to blend so well with Omar’s. Their talent as individual artists is immense, and even working together, they bring their A-game.
Wondering what the song sounds like at this point? We would be, too, if we were you. Listen here!
And as a bonus, they’ve released a visualizer. It’s short and simple– Omar Apollo just riding a bike, and the same scene is repeated throughout the clip. It may be simple, but it’s very relaxing to just watch it while listening to the song. 10/10 would recommend doing.
Now, maybe you’re curious as to where you can get Omar Apollo’s Apolonio when it’s out because you want to listen to him more. If that’s the case, you can pre-order it here!
Even Ruel’s got his project on the way. His EP Bright Lights, Red Eyes will be out the Friday after Omar’s on October 23! You can pre-order that here.
