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:

Since confirming reports surrounding his sexuality by way of an open letter two weeks ago, Frank Ocean has found himself on the receiving end of many a varied opinion.
Accused of ‘fooling women’ by Khia while applauded for his honesty by Beyonce, today saw B2K alum Omarion share his thoughts on the letter.

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…
