afropunk premiere: listen to memphis singer apollo mighty’s passionate new release “happiness (priorities)”

March 31, 2016

“Happiness (Priorities)” is the passionate new R&B track from Memphis singer Apollo Mighty. The single is a declaration of dedication, a pledge of allegiance if you will, to an unseen entity; which makes the track all the more relatable. Apollo’s voice is the real stand-out, as his rich tonality and impressive range soars over the dramatic and swelling melody. “‘Happiness (Priorities)’, is about evaluating life choices and deciding where to place your focus. For me, it was a reflection. I’m singing about the emotion you feel when you connect with something bigger than yourself. It’s the complete absence of pride being replaced by unconditional love,” the singer tells AFROPUNK.

“Happiness (Priorities)” is the third release from Apollo Mighty’s upcoming project “The Great Divide” out April 15.
