Omar Apollo's 'Spite' shines on the latest 'La Alternativa'

On Sunday's edition of La Alternativa, we unveiled a bunch of exciting new tracks. Among them, "Spite" by Omar Apollo emerged as a standout.

A poignant exploration of unrequited love that's both infectious and deeply authentic, this track serves as the inaugural single from Apollo's anticipated sophomore album slated for release this summer. The announcement of the new project marks a thrilling milestone in Apollo's career, following the success of his 2022 album, Ivory, which earned him a Grammy nomination in 2023 for Best New Artist.

Meanwhile, Puerto Rican rapper and doctor PJ Sin Suela graced us with his trademark experimental vibes on "Amor Artificial." The captivating track delves into love's complexities, questions its authenticity and urges listeners not to squander precious time on artificial affections. Beginning with the gentle strumming of an acoustic guitar, the song gradually evolves into a whirlwind of drum-and-bass goodness, perfectly encapsulating the eclectic musical ethos of La Alternativa. It's a testament to our commitment to showcasing diverse sounds and pushing artistic boundaries.
