After dropping visuals for “Kickback,” a track from off his Friends EP, rising Mexican-American artist Omar Apollo has returned with a new single produced by Kenny Beats. “Frío,” which means “cold” in English, is Apollo’s first single sung entirely in Spanish. The track fuses soulful R&B beats with a sultry rhythm.

Apollo talks about the inspiration behind “Frío:”

“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.”

Apollo is officially kicking off his The Speed of Sound tour November 2 in Oakland and closing it out in Atlanta on December 15. Stream “Frío” below and head here to purchase tickets for the artist’s upcoming shows.
