Indiana-raised artist Omar Apollo has followed up the release of his single “Frio” last week with another new song, collaborating with Kenny Beats once again and bringing Dominic Fike on for “Hit Me Up”.
A couple of months ago, Instagram posts of Apollo and Fike working together started circulating, and now listeners have the chance to hear what they’ve been cooking up. “Hit Me Up” offers the best of both artists’ worlds; Kenny Beats, who previously collaborated with Fike on their song “Phone Numbers”, uses a similar sonic aesthetic to bring the two vocalists together in a way that fits both of their styles. Over a smooth bassline and punchy drums, Apollo’s harmonies soften the track as Fike’s melodic flows ride the beat more aggressively. The three artists make for a natural match, and they’re able to capitalize on the hype that they each have around their names right now to make for a rewarding, highly-anticipated collaboration.
