Concord Music Publishing announced their worldwide publishing deal with Latin Grammy-nominated Pop, R&B Singer-Songwriter, Omar Apollo. The deal will cover Apollo’s full catalog, including his debut major label album, Ivory, as well as his future works.
Apollo has been gaining recognition for his album, Ivory, which received critical acclaim from Rolling Stone, Complex, and GQ, among others, and is generating GRAMMY buzz. This album features his hit single “Evergreen (You Didn’t Deserve Me At All),” which is trending on TikTok and streaming, peaking at #1 spot on Apple Music’s US Top Pop Songs Chart, top 20 on Spotify’s USA Top Songs Chart, and has received over 12.4 M streams to date. “Evergreen” is reaching new chart milestones as Apollo’s first single to break into Billboard’s Hot 100 and currently climbing on Top 40 radio. The live version from Apollo’s NPR Tiny Desk Performance released this month.
Omar Apollo states: “Working with Jeremy and the Concord Music Publishing team has been great.”
Prior to his success with Ivory, Apollo was popular on SoundCloud with his single “Ugotme” which has accumulated over 30 million streams in the U.S. to date across all platforms. In 2020, he released his unapologetically open-hearted mixtape Apolonio, and performed a livestreamed concert from Prince’s Paisley Park to celebrate the release. Apollo received his first Latin GRAMMY nominations in 2021 for his collaboration “Te Olvidaste” with C Tangana.
“Omar has already proven himself to be one of the most exciting artists, pushing music forward. It’s been amazing working Omar together with Dylan [Shanks, management] and his current success is only the beginning,” says Jeremy Yohai, SVP A&R at Concord Music Publishing.
Apollo has also had memorable festival appearances at 2022 Coachella, Camp Flog Gnaw, Lollapalooza, ALC Fest, as well as broadcast appearances on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and more. Apollo is about to embark on another headline tour in the US, with dates at major cities including two shows at Brooklyn’s Kings Theatre and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles.
