R&B sensation SZA is performing at Capital One Arena on Sunday, Feb. 26, and she’s bringing along rising young star Omar Apollo to open her SOS Tour!
Just last fall, Omar Apollo visited DC to sell out The Anthem on the heels of releasing his debut full-length album, IVORY. Released to widespread acclaim last year, IVORY takes Omar’s songwriting to the next level — crossing genre lines as well as language barriers as it showcases even greater musical diversity from the budding superstar.
The album features the Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo produced single “Tamagotchi,” as well as previously released singles “Killing Me,” “Invincible” featuring Daniel Caesar, the Teo Halm-produced single “Bad Life” with Kali Uchis and “Go Away,” produced by Omar himself alongside Carter Lang and Chromeo.

Omar Apollo, born Omar Apolonio Velasco, is one of music’s most exciting shape-shifters. Emerging on the scene in 2018 with his self-released EP Stereo, Omar has since released his 2019 EP Friends and his 2020 project Apolonio, which features the hit track “Want U Around” feat. Ruel and collaborations with Bootsy Collins, DJ Dahi, Albert Hammond, Jr., and more.
