Apollo, clearly thrilled by the unexpected turn of events, eventually stood up with a microphone to contribute his vocals to the track. “Worth The Wait” is featured on Kali Uchis’ album Red Moon In Venus, released earlier this year, which marked the first of her promised two albums in two different languages.
Kali Uchis, known for her versatile musical style, shared insights into her upcoming project, Orquídeas, slated for an early 2024 release. This second album is a testament to Uchis’ commitment to linguistic diversity, with the entire performance dedicated to Spanish.
In a statement, Uchis explained the inspiration behind Orquídeas, stating, “This album is inspired by the timeless, eerie, mystic, striking, graceful, and sensual allure of the orchid.” The decision to perform entirely in Spanish aligns with Uchis’ dedication to connecting with her audience in different languages.
Kali Uchis’ performance at Camp Flog Gnaw, enriched by the surprise appearance of Omar Apollo, stands as a captivating moment in music history.
