Omar Apollo has released his first new song of 2023, "3 Boys," and you can hear it below. In a statement, Apollo explained of his track:


When I first started writing songs I would often write about unrequited love. Eventually I wrote songs about the complexities that come with a relationship. "3 Boys" was my first time writing about something non-monogamous. Having more than one person to talk to. I wrote the song on a rainy day in London. I spent most of December there, mostly just because I wanted to get out of America. I ended up going to the studio more than I thought I would. I wrote the song with a friend of mine, Dylan Wiggins. It seemed like we were both in the same mind state for a song like this. The song wrote itself really quickly. I also had my friend Mustafa help me with a few lines after I played it for him.


"3 Boys" comes after Omar Apollo was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2023 Grammy Awards. Apollo released his debut studio album, Ivory, in April 2022. The record features guest appearances from Daniel Caesar and Kali Uchis, as well as the R&B singer-songwriter's biggest hit to date, "Evergreen." Later in 2022, he released a deluxe version of the album, Ivory (Marfil).
