Since departing from the group B2K it’s been a tough road for singer Omarion to make a solo name for himself commercially. He seems to have only defined himself as an artist who can produce one quality chart topper from one album at a time. But here’s hoping that it’s not a repeat with his latest effort “BDY On Me”, the first single taken from his forthcoming album “Reasons”. The artist has been busy down in South Africa not only wrapping shooting on the “BDY On Me” single but also filming a follow up track “Distance”.
“I can’t wait for people to hear, for people to see it,” Omarion said about “Distance” in a recent interview. “We shot the video in South Africa. That was an amazing experience. We actually shot three different videos over there. It was an amazing experience to be in a place…for the first time. You’re really connected with the experience…The video is amazing. I can’t wait for people to see it.” The singer also leaked some news about the upcoming album as well, saying he recorded a track with female vocalist Kehlani. “We have a song called ‘Angel’ that’s pretty awesome, I remember the first time I met her. We were doing a show…I watched her perform. Everyone had been talking about her. I had to do my research. Everyone had been telling me, ‘She’s dope. She’s fly. She has a dope personality.’ It was super cool to make music with her. The song we did is super cool because I think people are gonna love how she sounds on this song. People love how she sounds and this song we have is super special.”
Lately Omarion has been turning to record producer Nic Nac to make his hit singles, and he’s most famously known for producing songs for Chris Brown and Tyga, most recently “Loyal” and “Ayo”. For this album Omarion will keep going down the same path by having Nic Nac returning and also having some features which include the likes of James Fauntleroy and Verse Simmonds to state a few.
In the “BDY On Me” video Omarion is in Cape Town and enjoys some beautiful views including the sunset, an ocean cliff and of course, the ladies. The song samples the 1997 hit “Too Close” by veteran R&B group Next. Listen to the single below and don’t hesitate to let us know your thoughts:
