Omarion Enlists ‘When Love Takes Over’ Writers For Comeback (Listen)

Published: Monday 23rd Jan 2012 by Sam

It’s been a hot minute since we’ve heard anything fro R&B trier Omarion.

The 27 year old’s B2K exit saw him on a seeming fast-track to solo superstardom, however poor album sales led to waning interest, led to dodgy record deals, led to his current predicament. Not to mention the drama which has plagued the entire B2K clan over the last few years.

Hoping to reverse his fortunes, the singer has teamed up with the Nervo Twins (the Australian sisters most notable for co-writing Kelly Rowland‘s ‘When Love Takes Over’). Together they’ve conjured up ‘Army’.

Can it be the comeback his career is so thirsty for? You be the judge after the jump…

On a scale from Rihanna to Adele, this by no means offensive. However, one has to wonder if jumping on a generic dance beat is really going to be the water-into-wine miracle O so clearly needs right now.

That said, the track boasts a growing buzz Down Under. Whether the rest of the world follows suit remains to be seen.

    i see this poppin in europe and in the gay clubs…nowhere else. im ashamed to say but the song is ok. its def the best omarion’s voice has ever sounded. that instrumental is so 2009 tho

  2. Nicholle Pride January 23, 2012

    That’s a s*** picture of him.

  3. crush January 23, 2012

    Omarion….give it up already.
    Go back to any school of your choice get a degree and move on….

    Its sad to see so many artist who were once teen idols from when I was growing up cling so desperately to the fame they once had.
    Ashanti,Lil Kim,Omarion(any member of b2k),Mario,bow wow,Tierra Marie, the list goes on…. Im sure it’s a hard pill to swallow just move on….the song is HOT Garbage also…his best work will always be 21

    Me no like 🙁 .

  5. aisha aguilera keys January 23, 2012

    well Crush, it’s hard for them to move on, they’re addicted to the money and fame. and what do u suggest they do, coach kids’ soccer teams? i agree w/ u, but these peeps don’t want to go back to being ordinary people.

    Omarion is really trying. I don’t really know what he could do anymore. Trey Songz, Ne-Yo and Chris Brown sing better than he does. Chris Brown is a MUCH better all around entertainer than he is so…. hmmm I don’t really know.

  7. HeavyHeavy January 23, 2012

    where is everyone going with these lyric-less songs….Rihanna mainstreamed it with WFL, now cassie is trying it with KOH and now Omarion tryna jump on the over crowded wagon. This song is too weak to re-launch him, he should go towards hip-hop beats with influences of dub step…I should be an A&R guy jheez

  8. Kingphoenix January 23, 2012

    I dont know why he did this but i guess…I was never really a fan of his music, but more of a fan of his assets…so it really makes no different to moi.

  9. HeavyHeavy January 23, 2012

    Why not set a trend and try and be unique, especially if your trying to re-launch your image/brand…don’t jump on a wagon for comparisons cause you will sound like everyone else

  10. HeavyHeavy January 23, 2012

    I think he should leak a naked pic that will create some buzz 😀

  11. stephaniewazhere January 23, 2012

    this actually is pretty groovy, so many haters. I like it, give him a chance.

    Yes, well said!

  14. Your Point Is January 23, 2012

    I actually like this s***.

  15. mobwife January 23, 2012

    In addition to Europe and the gay clubs, I actually think this will also play on the new pop-dance-psyduo-techno stations that seem to have popped up all over the country. Look at the success Flo Rida, Tao Cruz, etc have been having with this style of music! Vocally it doesn’t even sound like Omarion who actually has a nice voice. The generic pop-dance-wanna-be-techno music scene just might be his ticket back into the game. IMO

  16. Jamie January 23, 2012

    He shoulda stuck with that “Forgot About Love” song. This sucks

  17. Humberto January 23, 2012

    Guilty pleasure, tbh.

    I’m definitely feeling the beat.

  18. Dev January 23, 2012

    Omarion is cute. He be looking too fine these days.

  19. lostonez January 23, 2012


  20. Yeah January 23, 2012

    Oh god Omarion, I am the biggest fan of your voice but you have failed to keep your style of music updated and you’re still doing those ratchet dance moves from the touch routine. Chris Brown stomped a mud hole in your ass performance wise and creatively. You have no creativity O. Let it go.

  21. daz January 23, 2012

    2 Words- Baby Chimp ..YUCK!

  22. TheOneAndOnly January 23, 2012

    Rihanna would have made this beat a number one….sad, but its the truth

  23. B January 23, 2012

    Omarion i still like you, your a cutie and still talented to me, but give up the gig dude. Its over if it hasnt happened for you solo in all this time, your obviously lost about your sound of music, and cannot produce any hit songs…

  24. Gayman January 24, 2012

    This is cool. Dated, but cool. This is one of them tracks that they be playing at them gay men bath houses where you f*** and get your rocks off. LOL
