Omar Apollo, has released “Kamikaze,” his new single follows the self-written/produced “Stayback,” as well as the song’s remix featuring Parliament-Funkadelic’s Bootsy Collins. Speaking on the inspiration behind “Kamikaze,” Omar says: “’Kamikaze’ is a song that taps into my old emotions, taking it back to when I was younger. When I made ‘Kamikaze’ I was reminiscing on how I used to feel for someone and realizing those feelings are lost and we’re left with nothing. It feels good to hold on to the memories without the feelings it gave me.”
