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.

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:
