New Song: Omarion – ‘Forgot About Love’

Published: Wednesday 26th Jan 2011 by Sam

Following the poor performance of Omarion‘s 2009 LP ‘Ollusion’ LP, the R&B singer  vowed to switch things up for his next record. A promise the former B2K star seems to be sticking to, if newly surfaced cut ‘Forgot About Love’ is anything to go by.

Is the song actually any good, though? Take a listen after the jump…

Refreshing!

With its solid production and unique vocal arrangements (which were clearly inspired by Brandy), O looks to be onto a winner with this one. A winner being something his career is in urgent need of at present – as there still remains no word on which label will be distributing his forthcoming LP.

    His career is thirsty in need of a hit. Cause walking around here playing b*** darts and pretending to be a fashion expert (tacky ass outfits) aint cutting it. Anyways I like.

  2. JB January 26, 2011

    The verses remind me a lot of Brandy’s “Drum Life,” which was a bonus track from Human. I love that song though. This one lacks continuity. I don’t really like it.

    I like it. not the verses though
    But the lyrics arent too bad, and the vocal arrangments are good.

  5. ULISES January 26, 2011

    Looks like he took some notes when it comes to Brandy’s vocal arrangements. Definitely enjoyed this. People definitely seem to have forgotten about love. Time to leave all the negativity and hatred behind. Spread the love y’all.

  6. S*** January 26, 2011

    I feel like a heard this 1000X’s already. Its like Brandy(With her Whinny yet hesitant over produced Vocals) Meets RayJ Meets B2Gay… 😐

  7. Traci Summers January 26, 2011

    yeah u can tell its brandy inspired… he needs to do more accoustic performances hes vocally slept on im so serious… but when he talks all sexual n s*** i dno. it seems forced.. but this is dope. he needs to pull a ciara.. GO BACK TO THE BASICS. no1 likes the kanye west/fonzworth swagger. go back the hood s*** omarion.. thats what gave u stardom… I RELLI LIKE THIS but the acapella at the end is horrible that was pointless

  8. Stoney-Brie January 26, 2011

    Brandy has a unique tone to her voice.. those runs and riffs r not to be played with..so callin them over produced is just another dumb loser that’s used to commenting hate comments on thz blogs…

    So @S*** what if ur computer freezes while your typing s*** like that.. who u gon be mad at??

    Does anyone really care about this cartoon?

  10. Humanoid 5000 January 26, 2011

    it’s sad to see the stars that I grew up when i was a teenager = during their former glory days struggle now. This is just ok it kinda gets annoying after the first verse. Omarion’s career has been over honestly since the 21 album which is sad because that is his best album. he got lucky with icebox and since then it’s been alot of misses on his part. I hope he can bounce back and get at least another gold album. it’s sad though that O the album went to #1 and only sold 700,000 and then 21 another #1 only sells 350000

  11. Fantasy Ride January 26, 2011

    He is vocally SLEPT on

  12. brazio January 26, 2011

    i like this! Always liked Omarion…He needs to release and ride this one out .. a hitt

  13. Harvey January 26, 2011

    Omarion needs to get them hits back EMI…tried to f*** his career up with no promo he needs to sign with Roc Nation.cause I feel so bad for him Chris Stokes may be for the blame cause he didnt even do promo the Only he had was heavy ass video play on MTv music channels.

  14. WonderLand19 January 26, 2011

    Another dance track, how is that refreshing?

  15. Harvey January 26, 2011

    This could be a hit on Urban radio rhythmic radio and pop….this amazing Brandy is always who he sings like.Omarion just need that goodass record label I’ll pray its
    Interscope he Would be under Polow Da Don label you know he would make him famous all over again.

  16. Harvey January 26, 2011

    @Wonderland19 this track would flop on club charts it’s just a light lil dance bet.this is why urban and just a pop.

  17. BREEZYTHEBEST January 26, 2011

    Omarion can dance and he can sing his ass off but when CB came out it was slowly over for O.It’s sad but the reality is if you are not unique in what you do people will forget about you.There is nothing special about Omarion if it was then Ollusion would have done better.I wish the best of luck to Omari.

  18. Royalkev January 26, 2011

    This is actually hot! I see that he definitely took Brandy 101. I always liked his style of singing and the work he did with Cornaboyz. I think Breezy’s arrival in the game may have something to do with the lack of interest in Omarion, but he’s creative enough to maintain his place in the industry. I think his strength is performing and he’s one of the few people that could be just as raw and exciting as CB.

    [email protected] Omarion can sing his ass off and his underrated vocally

    omairon is one of the worst. espeiclaly live

  22. Traci Summers January 26, 2011

    123456 SHUT THE F*** UP! U SAD B**** OMARION SHITS ON TREY SONGZ..CHRIS BROWN SINGING/DANCING WISE NO1 IS TOUCHING OMARION.. USHER IS THE ONLY MAN ABOVE OMARION OMARION IS #2. SO DIE SLOW. omarion is the Prince of R&B

  23. WorldWideWaddie.com January 26, 2011

    This song must be a hit for Europeans because they accept anything. This song is HORRIBLE! His songs on Ollusion were way better. That album wasn’t promoted well as well as its singles.

  24. Prince Barbie January 26, 2011

    Sounds like an urban hit to me. He better use it to his advantage!!

  25. Auntie Jackie January 26, 2011

    This is a GREAT song. It’s just enough Pop, just enough R&B. I love this. Remember ‘Touch’? That was a great song as well, and it was a good mix of poppy R&B. Why can’t artists STOP trying so hard to cross over and take this route? That generic s*** is tired, and as much as I adore Chris Brown, his pop songs aren’t quite as good as this one. I wish he’d make this instead of generic pop!

  26. foundidentitity. January 26, 2011

    Speedin was an underground hit and couldve been a real hit if it was promoted well and if it was the actual lead single instead of that dreadful dance song he had chosen.

    This song is solid btw, I love it!

  27. ree January 26, 2011

    well all I can say is that HELLO the new RUPAUl if it walks like a duck then you know the rest plus trying to sound like Brandy really!!!!!SMDH

  28. rob January 26, 2011

    love it

  29. Jamie January 26, 2011

    I’m not gon’ lie, I thoroughly enjoyed this song. It is a hit!!!!

  30. MrIncredible January 26, 2011

    Sorry, this sounds like a failed attempt at recreating Brandy’s “Acapella (Something Is Missing)”. Though I tried to be, I’m not impressed.

  31. STRAX January 26, 2011

    SOME OF THE LAME GET UPS OMARION HAS BEEN DROPPING OF RECENT, HAS BEEN OBVIOUSLY ATTENTION SEEKING.

    HE’S OKAY, BUT HAS BECOME MORE IRRELEVANT SINCE THE SUCCESS OF “O”.AND EXPOSED AS AN AVERAGE DANCER IN COMPARISON TO BREEZY AND HIS VOICE IS NOT THE BEST I HAVE HEARD, LETS BE REAL HERE…

    HOPE HE COMES BACK, AS I THINK HE HAS A PLACE IN MUSIC, BUT I DO NOT THINK THIS IS THE SONG FOR AN IMPACT OR MAJOR “COMEBACK”…

  32. tia January 26, 2011

    If Brandy dont jump on this and do a remix i know something!!!! This clearly fits her voice to a T!! I like it, but i wanna hear brandy on it, like Featuring Brandy for sure. Omarion needs to go back to timbo and pharrell for beats, thats where his best hits came from

  33. BREEZYTHEBEST January 26, 2011

    @Traci Summers ,I cant tell if your serious or joking but you know damn well Omarion does not s*** on Chris. O is not even on the same wavelength as Chris so please with the delusions.I said Omari is a good dancer and singer but let’s not OD, if you really wan’t to keep it 100% Raz B right now is more relevant then Omarion.

  34. CURLY SUE January 26, 2011

    Boring……………………………

  35. foreverAfan January 26, 2011

    Yay O! i did the hit or miss poll on my 1st listen like 15 seconds in and completely misjudged the song. #oops! but by the chorus i really really liked it!! so i refreshed and voted again lol! well done mr omarion!

  36. KWON_THE_LEO January 26, 2011

    @ S***…BRANDY HAS A WHINING TONE??? B**** ARE U SERIOUS?? THIS COMING FROM A BEYONCE STAN??? GIRL KILL YOSELF WITH YO HATING ASS!!!!!

  37. jordy January 26, 2011

    omarion needs to go back to the way he was and seriously needs to leave EMI and sign with a different record label that can bring him back to his ice box days, omarion we need you back, good song to btw

  38. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ January 26, 2011

    I like it! I’m glad he didn’t go the generic pop route even with his career in the dumps.

    And I agree, the vocal arrangements are VERY similar to my Bran Bran’s! Sounds like it could have been on the “Human” album. LOVE it! <3

  39. Carrington January 27, 2011

    More proof that you clearly have no idea what sounds good. This is mediocre at best. Give Rihanna a break – you obviously don’t know what the hell good music is.

  40. TTSUP3R January 27, 2011

    Just finished listening to this and honestly can’t remember how it sounded. =\

  41. VA STAND UP!! January 27, 2011

    I like it, It’s cool! It does sounds a lot like Brandy especially on the chorus with the harmonizong but B Rock is my girl so I don’t mind. It doesn’t sound like the typical r&b track it has an interesting beat, and he even goes acapella on it which gets kind weird after a while. I was never really feeling his singing voice, but he sounds pretty decent on here.

    Omarion had pretty much fell off my radar, and everyone’s for that matter, but this is very promising. I don’t know how it will do as a single though so I guess we will have to see. I think ‘Speedin’ was one of his best records yet and that completely fell flat so you just never know. Good luck O!

    Gurls please. omarion shits on chris brown.. chris brown is over .. omarion has a way in.. OLLUSION was my S***. hes from L.A so i have to stan for him
    ————————————————————————————–

    Girl sit your illiterate, hypocritical, delusional ass all the way down somewhere and stay there! You be on every damn Chris Brown post talking s*** and now you want to come here and say that dumb s***! B**** PLEASE!! I can’t believe you even typed that s*** knowing damn well it ain’t true!

    The only person who has ever been anywhere near the level of Usher is Chris! He is the only one that get compared to Usher, Omarion was NEVER even considered next in line.

    Omarion hasn’t had a hit in years! Ain’t nobody checking for O and you aren’t either you are just using him as a way to shade Chris!

    You stay bringing up CB’s name in a post that has nothing to do with him! Omarion is no where near the level of Chris and is no competition to Chris WHAT SO EVER!! Don’t believe me…check the charts! Omarion is no where to be found! That’s all the proof you need!

    Now have a seat B****!

  43. Quiana January 27, 2011

    This was a nice song, but I would like Brandy to do it because this sounds like her.

  44. SparkD January 27, 2011

    I love this song.

    STYLE: Very Brandy post-Full Moon Era
    RETRO: PM Dawn – fusion hip-hop, dance, r&b (Check – Looking Through Patient Eyes)
    HARMONIES: Somewhat BoyzIIMen and very Brandy

  45. AREIS January 27, 2011

    very good song, i would love for Brandy to redo this song, but Omarion did his thing.

  46. THe MEssage January 28, 2011

    IT HAS BRANDY ALL OVER IT.. THIS SONG MUSTA BEEN WRITTEN FOR HER AT SOME POINT>. Like the Song.. But would LOVE it.. if it were BRANDY.

  47. STFU @ S*** January 30, 2011

    S*** ur a dumbass that probably has no talent & wouldn’t know music if it bit you on your h***** infested genitalia.

    on another note this song is the s***. I wish radio would come back full swing with the GOOD music instead of the catchy, meaningless crap that’s forced upon us now. This song has a point to make. Listen to the lyrics & stop listening to the beat & wondering whether you can dance to it or not! You’re all becoming dumber by the second.
