Omarion Signs With EMI

Published: Thursday 24th Sep 2009 by Sam


After a somewhat tumultuous few months, a period which saw him sign and severe ties with Timabland and Lil’ Wayne’s labels, Omarion today announced that he has signed a new deal with EMI. Check out the report below via MTV:

The former B2K frontman announced Thursday (September 24) that he signed a new deal with EMI to create his own imprint StarWorld Entertainment. Through the pact, the Los Angeles native will release his next project, Ollusion, due November 24. Just last month, Omarion united forces with Lil Wayne and joined the rapper’s Young Money roster. However, shortly after the news broke, the singer mysteriously parted ways with the camp.

“I have a lot of respect and admiration for the genius of Lil Wayne and the entire Young Money family,” he said in a statement. “I asked to be released from the label to pursue other opportunities that were recently presented to me. Because of our relationship, Lil Wayne had no issue with us ending our business relationship and released me from the label.”

Prior to linking with Lil Wayne, O partnered with Timbaland in 2008, but the union didn’t result in any material being released through the producer’s Mosley Music Group.

Omarion will now ready his third solo album, which will feature collaborations from Tank, Fabolous and Gucci Mane on the first single, “I Get It In,” set to debut October 5.

“My style has evolved so much on this album,” Omarion said in a statement. “I was able to express truly who I am from a creative and artistic standpoint, which allowed me to share a personal side of myself with my fans through my music. This is my masterpiece, and I can’t wait for the world to hear my new album.”

More power to him; it seems ol’ Omari has more lives than Super Mario. Here’s hoping all this label bouncing will result in a worthwhile album. The void Chris Brown has left in the young male R&B/Pop market has been left open for seemingly so long, so this really could be Omarion’s time to shine – providing he ditches the uber nasal singing and the material is half-way decent.

Your thoughts?

    He’s like a cockroach who can dance the robot lol. I’m happy for him. His has talent but he needs the right support system to help him realise his full potential. I don’t think he’ll be able to fill the void Chris left though. I still have my eye on Usher whose first single will be dropping soon.

    Trey Songs is the only male artist that seriously IMO went after Chris Brown spot ( even though I don’t think he succeed) while he’s been laying low. All the female chicks on the other hand have been too scared to go after RiRi’s spot and now its too late b/c she’s about to drop a new album. Now O has alot of competition he’s about to be up against Chris Brown, Mario, Usher, and Marques Houston (I know he might not count but still he coming out lol) so Omarion betta BRING IT good luck homie!

    So it fact that “I Get It In” will in fact be an Omarion single. Because if that is the case, and Lil’ Wayne isn’t the featured rapper on it, THAT IS the reason why Young Money dropped him. Trying to get early buzz on a single Lil’ Wayne ain’t OKed yet!

    Anywho… I get it in could(have) been hot! We will see what becomes of it. But you are right, Omaion is having more record deals thrown his way than any1 else as of lately, and IMO he isn’t that deserving. If I were him I would have stayed with Timbaland since he produced his biggest hit “Ice Box” or Lil’ Wayne, since right now Wayne can do no wrong…. hmmmmmmm!
