Omar Apollo shares his Spanish debut “Frío” produced by Omar himself and Kenny Beats. Although the Mexican-American artist has sung in Spanish before, the new track is the first entirely in his native language and the first specifically steeped in Latin culture – fusing his signature heart-wrenching R&B with a sultry dembow rhythm. The result is an infectious anthem simultaneously fit for dancing at the club or crying in the bedroom.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the song, Omar says: “This was the first song I made fully in Spanish. I was in my hometown for my brother’s wedding, and I was at the attic where I used to live with six other people and where I used to record all of my early music. I was with my bassist Manny and my homie Tony and we just started making beats like we did back in the day. I got the verse and hook and then we stopped. Once I was back in LA I brought it to my homie Kenny Beats. The song is about not wanting to repeat the same cycle of emotions- but also about being stuck in that cycle too. Coming in and out of the cycle of a relationship.”
