Following the release of his highly-anticipated debut album IVORY earlier this year, Omar Apollo proves to be the gift that keep on giving. The RnB infused alt-pop star has shared his brand new single Highlight, and it's exactly what it says on the tin - An absolute Highlight.
Omar's vocal performance shines over mellow production as he glides seamlessly between English and Spanish verses. We can't stop, won't stop hitting repeat.
Co-produced by Omar Apollo and Grammy-winning producer Manuel Lara (Bad Bunny, Kali Uchis, Rauw Alejandro), Highlight and the previously released single Archetype both appear on the deluxe edition of his debut, IVORY (Marfil), out on August 12th with 5 new additional songs.
Highlight arrived on the heels of his recent nomination for Push Performance of the Year at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in addition to being featured on Barack Obama's Summer 2022 playlist.
Released to widespread acclaim, IVORY takes Omar's songwriting to the next level – crossing genre lines as well as language barriers as it showcases even greater musical diversity from the budding superstar. The album features the Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo produced single Tamagotchi, as well as previously released singles Killing Me, which debuted with a television performance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Invincible featuring Daniel Caesar, the Teo Halm-produced single Bad Life with Kali Uchis and Go Away, produced by Omar himself alongside Carter Lang and Chromeo.
