Pedro Pascal is making his debut as a recording artist thanks to his friend Omar Apollo. The Chilean actor appears on one of Omar’s songs from his album God Said No, released today (June 28). The LP also includes hidden features from the Mexican-American superstar’s parents. 

Last month, Omar Apollo set the Internet ablaze when he revealed the tracklist for God Said No. Many speculated that the song “Pedro” was about Pascal. The crooner later confirmed through a press release that The Last of Us star was featured on the LP. “Pedro” is indeed the song that features Pascal’s voice. 

“Pedro,” an interlude produced by the singer, opens with Omar briefly singing about wanting to be loved and embraced. Pascal then clears his throat in a voice memo. He opens up about overcoming a moment of grief in his life. The actor ends his candid stream-of-consciousness by saying, “I can’t believe I’m sending you this.”

Many people online praised and connected with Pascal’s contribution to Omar’s album. On X, one person wrote, “tell me why i’m sobbing at 7am over the pedro pascal x omar apollo track.” Another person added, “PEDRO PASCAL ON PEDRO BY OMAR APOLLO! I LOVE THAT MAN!!!!”



“Pedro” leads into the final song on the album, “Glow.” At the end of that sprawling ballad, Omar’s mom talks in Spanish about her childhood memories of making gorditas in Mexico. Moreover, his dad’s giggle can be heard in the song “Drifting.” Though it appeared that there was no Latine track on God Said No, he actually sings half of the heartbreaking track “Empty” in Spanish. 

Next month, Omar Apollo will kick off his God Said No World Tour in Australia. The tour will later touch down in the U.S. on Aug. 20 in Indianapolis, IN.
