Omar Apollo's parents moved to the U.S. to give their kids better lives and the opportunity to go to college. After two weeks of classes, Apollo realized traditional education wasn't for him. Instead, he picked up writing, recording and producing skills and released his debut EP Stereo this past summer. The EP featured songs in both English and Spanish.

The singer's repertoire has traces of jazz, R&B, funk, alternative, soul and pop. But his new single "Trouble" is a tender alternative pop ballad, that sounds a little more mainstream than any of his past tracks. The song opens with apparitional guitar strums and heartfelt lyrics. If the soothing melody, doesn't make you the slightest bit emotional, check out the music video, directed by Aiden Cullen.

The striking video follows Omar Apollo and his young nephew around as they go through typical day-to-day scenarios. Viewers watch the impact Apollo has on the young boy, without even noticing. "Trouble" comments on the notion that children are constantly watching and mimicking everything they see, so set a good example and stay out of trouble for them.
