Omarion continues on in his bid for R&B supremacy today, arriving to the genre’s party with a brand new single named ‘Know You Better’!
Unfortunately, in showing nothing for his time in B2K and run as a solo act, ‘Better’ makes for a pretty unfortunate lesson on all fronts.
For one, despite boasting sweet production, the song sees the star deal with predictable topic matter, doing nothing to win over the audience he’ll need to truly rise above his current standing.
Not sure what we mean?
After ‘MIA’, we’d hoped the material that would follow would mark a step in the direction.
Unfortunately, it seems he’s become limited to songs that document his time in the club, time in bed and time spending money.
Sure, while these cuts may sound hot in the club, they’re not the kind of songs that will pull him from out of Maybach’s shadows and place him at the forefront of his scene, where he should be.
Basically, if O’s content with his current standing on R&B’s sidelines, he’s going the right way about it.
