Omar Apollo Shares New Song Co-Produced By Kenny Beats

Omar Apollo returns today to share a new song, “Imagine U”, which he co-produced with frequent collaborator Kenny Beats. The track, featured on Apple’s New Music Daily, is his first release of the year and follows two other songs he worked on with Kenny Beats in late 2019, “Frio” and “Hit Me Up” featuring Dominic Fike.

Speaking on the inspiration behind the song, Apollo says: “I’m all about the feeling when it comes to music. The lyrics and melody came to me so naturally and I feel like free thinking is what’s missing in a lot of music nowadays. There’s a guitar part I played that’s pitched up as soon as the song starts that I love and when I first made the song that part was all I had. I was obsessed with it — I kept playing it on loop cause it felt so good to me. I was listening to a lot of daft punk at the time so I was really inspired by those themes.”
