US singer-songwriter heartthrob Omar Apollo has dropped the music video for new ballad Ice Slippin, inspired by the moment he came out as gay to his family.

Ice Slippin is the lead single from Omar’s upcoming EP Live For Me, out soon.

The lyrics of the heartfelt ballad reference heartbreak and rejection, and the beautiful music video features sentimental clips of Omar’s family home movies.

Those scenes of him as a child are juxtaposed with him as an adult, nude and alone and surrounded by ice.

The musician himself explained Ice Slippin “is about reliving the thoughts I had passing through my mind the winter I came out to my family.”

“Receiving cold judgment as opposed to the acceptance I felt I deserved,” he recalled.

“This song is a reflection and reaction of all the emotions I had to face before and after I decided to leave the icy streets of Indiana.”

Omar Apollo’s new EP is out on October 6, and he’s said the new release will contain songs he holds “very close.”

The singer-songwriter’s career exploded in 2022 after he released his debut retro-soul and R&B album Ivory.
