After racking up big kudos for his first two solo albums, “O” and “21” released respectively in 2005 and 2006, R&B sensation Omarion is back in the spotlight with his new album “Ollusion” which is dedicated to the late “King of Pop.”
After a few years off, the Grammy-nominated singer released his third effort on Tuesday, January 12. “I Get It In,” the lead single which was previously recorded with Lil Wayne, features rapper Gucci Mane. The album contains production by Tank, T-Pain, Marques Houston, 253 and Tha Drummmahz.
In 2009 it was reported that Omarion signed with Lil Wayne’s Young Money label under Cash Money Records. Soon after, rumors began to spread that the singer was dropped from the label due to the leaking of “I Get It In.” However, in August 2009 Omarion tweeted that he wasn’t dropped from the label but asked to be released from the label to better his career. Since parting ways with Young Money, Omarion signed with EMI and created his own imprint StarWorld Entertainment.
Let’s hope that after his issues with Timbaland’s Mosely Music Group and Lil Wayne’s Young Money, Omarion will finally be able to find his own success with his first release to earn a parental advisory sticker.
