R&B star Omar Apollo is getting ready to release his new single, TAMAGOTCHI, on March 23rd, and he's announced that it'll feature production from Pharrell and Chad Hugo, who are better known as the members of the production duo The Neptunes.
The Neptunes have worked with some of the world's biggest artists since forming in 1990, including Britney Spears, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani and more. They were also inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in January 2020 - a huge milestone for any musician. We're excited to hear what influence they've had on Omar's sound, as he's an artist that works well with musicians from any genre.

The song will feature on Omar's upcoming album, IVORY, which is set to be released on April 8th. It'll feature previously-released singles Killing Me and Go Away, as well as Invincible, his sun-soaked collaboration with Daniel Caesar, and Bad Life, his soulful collaboration with Kali Uchis.
Speaking about IVORY to GQ, Omar explains that he backed himself when making the album, preferring to trust his own instincts. "I used to work with 20 people in the room every time I’d be in the studio. Now I kick everyone out so it’s just me." It's hard to argue with the results so far.
Stay tuned for the release of TAMAGOTCHI, as well as IVORY. Omar Apollo's never been one to shy away from experimentation, and we're looking forward to seeing what sounds and genres he explores throughout IVORY, as we've loved everything we've heard to date.
