Pedro Pascal has opened up about his friendship with Omar Apollo, and it’s incredibly wholesome. 

Back in October, fans of The Last of Us star and the ‘Ivory’ singer went into a frenzy after the two were spotted in New York City

While Pascal and Apollo kept quiet about the viral photo at the time, that didn’t stop pop culture enthusiasts from becoming obsessed with the pairing—with many wondering about the exact nature of their relationship. 

Their enigmatic bond sparked even more interest when the Apollo revealed that the Fantastic Four star would appear on his upcoming album, God Said No.

With anticipation at an all-time high, Pascal opened up about their upcoming collaboration and his close bond with Apollo in a recent interview with GQ.

“Omar is a really good… It’s his birthday today! Send him a shout-out,” he exclaimed to the publication. “Omar is a very good friend of mine. I love his music.”

Pascal went on to gush about their similarities, highlighting their bilingual background and shared appreciation for Corona beer. 

“So I love being a friend in each other’s journeys and uplifting whatever I can creatively, supporting whatever creative experience that he’s having as a friend, as an artist, as a Latino, as a Spanish speaker,” he continued.

“It just means a lot to me. But anything else about his album before it comes out, you’re going to have to ask him.” 

While the Game of Thrones star remained tight-lipped on their upcoming collaboration, Apollo recently revealed to ABC News that the former’s favourite God Said No song was ‘Glow’.

“There was a song that he really loved, the song ‘Glow’,” said Apollo. “I was like, ‘It’d be really cool to hear you speak before that song plays, because the song is about grief and heartbreak, Apollo told the news outlet on 16 May.

“I thought it’d be a really good idea for him to speak on like a grief in his life or a story in his life. He sent me a voice memo, I asked him to, and then chopped it up, and that’s how it turned out.”

Additionally, God Said No includes a song simply titled ‘Pedro’. With Apollo’s above comments, it makes sense that the voice memo is its own interlude leading into ‘Glow’.

Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait too long for the Grammy-nominated singer’s sophomore album. God Said No will make its world debut on 28 June.
