American singer Omar Apollo’s ‘Invicible‘ feat. Daniel Caesar was one of the stellar songs played on this week’s Gossip Girl soundtrack — Gossip Girl, Season 2, Episode 6, “How to Bury a Millionaire“.
The song is the third single from Ivory Apollo’s 16-track debut studio album, which came out in April this year, and is one of just two songs from the album featuring a collaboration with another artist.
In the case of ‘Invincible‘, the song features the vocals of Canadian indie R&B singer songwriter Daniel Caesar.
The album went on to chart at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers Albums chart, #128 on the Billboard 200 chart and #14 on the Top Alternative Albums chart in the United States.
Omar Apollo himself is a Mexican-American singer songwriter who taught himself guitar when he was just 12-years-old by watching YouTube videos.
He began his music career by founding a band when still a teen, but eventually went solo and started to upload his self-produced, self-recorded songs to Spotify. Several of those songs eventually went viral, and he was soon receiving tens of thousands of plays a day.
Apollo self-released his debut EP in 2018, then later signed with AWAL and finally Warner Records, who released his debut album.
Listen to Omar Apollo’s ‘Invicible‘ feat. Daniel Caesar as heard on Gossip Girl yesterday in the song’s music video, and on Apollo’s Ivory studio album.
