I will tell ya’ll a story about Omarion. I saw him perform once at a Scream-style concert with other artists including Lloyd and Marcus Houston. Omarion was so playful and appreciative of his fans and it showed in his performance! He also sang very well and danced his ass off as usual. So I have a little soft spot for Omarion – I think he’s a talented, humble guy…Moving on, here is the video for his second single, Hoodie featuring California rapper Jay Rock. Omarion pays homage to his hometown in this gritty Michael Jackson Beat-It tribute video. The song sounds similar to Get It In, which didn’t fly too well around these parts. It’s cool that Omarion is riding his (so) hard hip-hop image wave, but where’s my real R&B at O? I hope this album is not going to be another disappoint. I’m hoping for music more along the lines of his former hits, O, Touch and Icebox. With what he’s released so far, I’m not fully impressed just yet. Check the video below. Also, that female in the liquid leggings and red hair is Omarion’s MOM. Go girl!
