It’s been some time since we put you onto Omar Apollo, and we hope you’re fiending for more! With the success of his latest album Ivory and his emergence on national television, Apollo is on a wave with his Latin-infused R&B sound. Now, he’s ready to reload as he prepares to release a deluxe edition Ivory (Marfil), with five new songs added. Omar follows up his previous singles ‘Tamagotchi’ and ‘Invincible’ with the scorching ballad ‘Archetype.’ In this track, Omar Apollo voices his yearning for true commitment with his heart on his sleeve.
Omar Apollo Wants An ‘Archetype’ For His Love
If R&B music’s already putting you in the zone this summer, ‘Archetype’ will keep you settled in. The track sets a poignant tone perfect for self-reflection or intimacy during sunsets with its electric guitar-laden groove. Apollo uses the instrumental as his personal canvas, baring his soul to affirm his devotion as a lover to his significant lover. Lines such as “Yeah, I know you’re feelin’ paranoia, are you in love?/’Cause I wanna try/I can tell by the way that you’re talkin’ to me/You don’t have a clue, neither do I…” captures the adrenaline of falling in love during the summer, a time that feels as alive as the rest of the year. Omar deserves some much-needed hugs for voicing how the anxiety we feel in his shoes.
In contrast to embittered songs like ‘Kamikaze’ and ‘Bad Life,’ Apollo is vulnerable to love when there’s sincerity, and we feel his pain! With the deluxe album on the way, stream ‘Archetype’ on all platforms and pre-order Ivory (Marfil) before it drops!
