Omar Apollo isn't wasting much time getting into 2023 with new music. Today, the singer is back with his new song "3 Boys."
The track follows the singer's Grammy nomination for Best New Artist and his debut album Ivory, which arrived last spring. Apollo will also be heading out on the road with none other than SZA later this month.
"When I first started writing songs I would often write about unrequited love," recalls Apollo. "Eventually, I wrote songs about the complexities that come with a relationship. '3 Boys' was my first time writing about something non-monogamous. Having more than one person to talk to. 🧐 I wrote the song on a rainy day in London. I spent most of December there, mostly just because I wanted to get out of America. I ended up going to the studio more than I thought I would."
He adds: "I wrote the song with a friend of mine, Dylan Wiggins. It seemed like we were both in the same mind state for a song like this. The song wrote itself really quickly. I also had my friend Mustafa help me with a few lines after I played it for him."
