Omarion‘s ‘Care Package 2′ left a fresh package at your front door today, now waiting on you to unwrap it and enjoy the gem within.
A gem, that comes in the form of his music video for the EP’s ‘Leave You Alone’, one of the many numbers the seasoned performer hopes will secure him the support currently behind Miguel, Frank Ocean and his old pal Jhene Aiko.

Before fans can get their hands on his 2014-due album ‘Love & Other Drugs’, R&B crooner Omarion, now known as ‘Maybach O’, is still heavy on the promo trail in support of the delivery of his latest EP ‘Care Package 2′.
A recent stop saw the ‘Entourage’ crooner drop by Billboard.com to discuss the EP, his forthcoming album, and interestingly, a B2K reunion. Hard to believe, but the demise of the hitmaking, R&B boy-band is nearing its 10 year anniversary.
As such, with 2000s bands like NSYNC and Danity Kane traipsing down “reunion’s road” (to varying capacities), O was quizzed on the possibility of reuniting with former bandmates J-Boog and Lil’ Fizz.

As anyone who’s given Omarion‘s ‘Care Package 2‘ a spin will agree, the former B2K is far more gifted and talented that most are willing to acknowledge.
Flaunting a creative growth that’s likely to surprise those who made the mistake of writing him off since his departure from Young Money, the release is now available to enjoy in full here, unveiled hours before he caught up with ‘Hot 97′ for an interview that’s sure to raise a few eyebrows this afternoon.
Why, you ask?

One year after ‘Care Package’ touched down on R&B’s door, Omarion unveils its follow up this week- gracing many an ear with…’Care Package 2.’
Released before the 2014 release of new album ‘Love & Other Drugs’, ‘Package‘ makes for a very impressive listen, sure to surprise any in doubt of O’s vocal skill and songwriting prowess.

Ever keen on keeping the masses abreast of fresh and/or often underrated talent, That Grape Juice presents ‘The Spill’ – a renewed look at not-so-new, yet active, acts.
Much like its ‘Freshly Squeezed’ sister segment, this revived assay aims to put the magnifying glass on talents who may not appeal to the buying public on a broad scale yet are still serving material that could easily spin side-by-side with some of today’s top hits.
Covering a kaleidoscope of genres, ‘The Spill’ is set to feature some names you probably know and love as well as some you’ll (soon) be glad to know. Click below to find out the spill on crooners Omarion, Luke James, The Weeknd, and much more…

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?

Omarion turns up the heat on a brand new cut today, billed ‘Bumpin’ & Grindin’!
Guitar led and produced TeeFLii, the jam sees him tackle familiar territory- so much so that it’s more generic than a genius. A shame, considering the potential Urban classic that was ‘MIA‘.

He doesn’t get enough credit for it, but Omarion truly is one of the only acts out today to get it right consistently.
Parting ways with the ‘Respect Us! We Used To Be Relevant’ agenda that saw he and Bow Wow billed laughing stocks circa ’08, the last few years have seen the former B2K star create and release material that’s both contemporary while still organically him.
Traits, that made his 2012 ‘Care Package’ EP one of our favourite releases to drop that year.
Now watch as he kicks off the campaign for his fourth studio album with the ‘Maybach O’ web series, documenting his journey towards its release date.
