Today (May 15), Omar Apollo revealed the tracklist for his upcoming album, God Said No. However, fans of the Mexican-American star think one song in particular could be linked to his famous friend Pedro Pascal.

In a post across his social media accounts, Apollo unveiled the cover art and tracklist for his second album God Said No. The LP will include angsty anthem “Spite,” which he released last month. One song title that has captured his fans’ attention is called “Pedro.” After Apollo was spotted hanging out with the Chilean-American actor last year, people online are drawing all kinds of conclusions about the upcoming track. 

It’s important to note that while Pascal is an ally of the LGBTQ+ community, he hasn’t publicly put a label on his sexuality. That hasn’t stopped Apollo’s fans from connecting the song “Pedro” to The Last of Us star. On X (formerly known as Twitter), one person posted a photo of Apollo with Pascal and wrote, “Omar Apollo having a song called Pedro on his new album. I see what’s going on.” Another person wrote, “I hope omar apollo’s song is just an outright love letter to pedro.” 

Multiple reports are claiming that Pascal will feature on God Said No. In March of last year, Pascal was spotted smiling while watching Apollo’s opening set at a SZA concert. The following July, Pascal commented on an Instagram post of Apollo’s fashion campaign with Loewe with a heart-eyes emoji. In October, Apollo and Pascal were later photographed hanging out together.

Apollo’s God Said No album will be released on June 28. Last year, he released his Live For Me EP. The EP included his song “Ice Slippin,” where Apollo opened up about his experience of coming out as a gay man to his family.
