Omar Apollo & Kali Uchis Team Up On “Bad Life”
The 23-year-old laments about giving his all in a relationship, and getting nothing in return.
Produced by Teo Halm, “Bad Life” finds Apollo singing over gentle chords and Uchis harmonies.
Reminiscent of Blonde-era Frank Ocean, Apollo pours it all out on “Bad Life.” Diving into the pain of giving his all in a relationship, and not getting anything back, Apollo channels his emotions into sharp lyrics that are delivered beautifully throughout the track.
“It’s a song about being resentful towards somebody,” Apollo said in a statement about “Bad Life.” “Wanting them to have ‘bad life’ with whoever they’re with now.”
A combination of warm sounds and cold lyrics, “Bad Life” is a modern tale of love, and what happens when it all goes bad.
‘Cause I feel it deeper and stronger
It won’t be much longer
‘Til you see for yourself
That’s a bad life you’re living
