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.

Hosted by model/actor Boris Kodjoe and ‘Kisses Down Low’ diva Kelly Rowland, viewers were treated to yet another show-stopping collision of fashion and music brought like only ‘Rip the Runway’ can bring.

Omarion‘s B2K days may long be over, yet the R&B star continues to play up his pin-up appeal in the video for new single ‘Paradise’.
The singer, who is now signed to Rick Ross‘ Maybach Music Group and peddles the tag name Maybach O, strips off for the simple visual – which serves as the first to be lifted from his forthcoming album ‘Love And Other Drugs’.

Maybach O, or Omarion as he is most famously known, is ready to put his latest solo offering into high gear with ‘Paradise’ – one of many new tracks readied for his inaugural Maybach Music Group (MMG) release ‘Love and Other Drugs’.
The not so G-rated cut sees O revisit lyrically familiar territory (see: sex, drugs) over a Youngfyre-produced, chopped-n-screwed beat. With a music video for the tune reportedly due Monday, get acquainted with ‘Paradise’ below and tell us your thoughts:

And the drama just keeps unfolding…
As fans know, this week saw ‘All Because of You’ crooner Marques Houston hit former T.U.G. labelmate Raz-B with a restraining order after Raz shared a video sometime ago alleging Houston molested him as a child.
Houston denied the claims and says the video caused he and his family emotional distress which, in turn, triggered this week’s restraining order request.
In defense of his “brother”, Omarion (now known as Maybach O) primarily took to ‘The Breakfast Club’ to promote the remix to his Wale-assisted single ‘M.I.A.’, but also weighed in on the restraining order fiasco and his time with Chris Stokes while there. See more O below:

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 former B2K frontman Omarion.

Who could forget how inseparable Omarion and Bow Wow were once upon a time? Indeed, wherever one went the other was close behind. The friends even released a rap-sung album in the form of ‘Face Off’ in 2007.
However, as the hits dried up, so too it seems did their friendship. Publicly, at least.
This year, though, has seen the former teen stars re-embrace one another; first performing at Bow’s ‘Underrated Tour’ in June, and yesterday standing side-by-side as they reminisced about the good ol’ days on BET’s 106 & Park.
Watch Maybach O and Mr 106′s emotional reunion below…

This morning saw Twitter set alight with chatter over last night’s 2012 BET Hip Hop Awards.
Already drumming up buzz from the beef between rappers Rick Ross and Young Jeezy, the televised showing got viewers chatting for reasons other than the showdown between the hip hop heavyweights.
Indeed, Ross’ MayBach Music Group’s latest inductee and former B2K frontman Omarion joined the Biggest Bawse on stage for what was expected to be a sizzling performance of their tune ‘Ice Cold’. However, unbeknownst to both, the fire was just starting:
