R&B ringleader Usher has long stood a solo symbol of the R&B divo – outlasting many of his 90′s male (and female) contemporaries to usher in chart-topping albums and singles over several genres. While able to claim the title of one of the most successful male solo acts of all time, the singer has still found time to lay his recognizable falsetto over many-a-rapper’s hooks and hits.
But, some may not know of his oft-under praised duets with singing co-stars.
On the heels of today’s ‘Lemme See’ video release (which features Rick Ross) and news the singer was set to duet with the late Amy Winehouse shortly before her death, That Grape Juice looks to salute Ush’s smoother musical couplings with some of R&B’s leading divas – Beyonce, Brandy, Alicia Keys, and Omarion. Get into old favorites and new acquaintances below:

“If you love something let it go, and if it comes back then that’s how you know” – Marques Houston
It’s been all of four years since Sing-Rap duo Bow Wow and Omarion graced a stage together and the same amount of time since the “close friends” have even been seen together.
And while the reason for their (musical) divorce remains unknown, it appears they’ve put their differences behind them. For, Maybach O (as Omari likes to be known these days) joined his former ‘Face Off’ comrade on stage during a recent stop on Bow’s ‘Underrated’ US tour.
Watch the pair in action below…

As the latest member of Rick Ross’ ‘Maybach Music‘ group, today saw the release of Omarion‘s first music video under Ross’ leadership, for the single ‘Let’s Talk‘.
Lifted from the upcoming release ‘Self Made Vol 2‘, the
budget ‘blacked out’ clip features Mr.B2K in the company of his new found boss and a troupe of scantily clad tabloid hopefuls.

Last week saw B2K alum Omarion sign to Maybach Music, the music group owned by Rapper Rick Ross.
So, in a bid to generate steam for his upcoming release under the MC, he released a brand spanking new cut today, named ‘Body’.
Check it out below…

Talk about quick! Fresh from making the announcement that ‘Icebox’ crooner Omarion would be joining ‘The Biggest Boss’ Rick Ross‘s camp Maybach Music, the two are already unleashing new music for the masses. The former B2K frontman’s first offering under the imprint is “Let’s Talk” – a thumping tune that samples 90s hip hop heavyweights Notorious B.I.G. and Salt & Pepa.
Certainly hoping to add his own brand of spice to the mix, see O and crew make their joint debut with this behind the scenes look at the upcoming visual:

Yesterday saw rapper Rick Ross shock the Urban diaspora with news that he had signed R&B trier Omarion to his Maybach Music imprint.
And while many jaws remain on the floor, the former B2K star stopped by BET’s 106 & Park (with his new “crew”) to discuss his surprising signing and the heat his new music will be packing.

Congratulations are certainly in order for Omarion.
For, after spending the last few years in what some might career limbo, he has inked a lucrative recording contract- with Rick Ross.

They once had the world quite literally at their feet. However, doomed solo and duo runs have seen the boys from B2K teetering on the border of Pop oblivion.
So, in adhering to the Industry 101 (see: three flops are better than one), the group (Omarion, J-Boog, and Lil Fizz) have reunited for a new project of sorts. And while little is known beyond the fact they recently recorded together (see: shot above), one things is certain: controversial member Raz-B will not feature.
Indeed, many will remember Raz’s shocking revelations, which left lead singer Omarion none-too-impressed. Remember this…

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…
