R&B singer Omarion drops an african inspired new music video for ‘Distance’, with hopes of breaking the commercial international market.

 

While on name alone you may now think VH1 reality star, good father, nice hairstyles, good dancer – well anything but music… The truth is Omarion has a long sting of hits from his music with teenage boy band B2K, to his single successes Ice Box, Touch and the most recent Chris Brown & Jhene Aiko collab ‘Post To Be’ – which notably went 3x platinum in the US and even impacted the official UK R&B charts at #11.

Offering tropical flavours, the music video stuns with rich greenery, jungle wildlife, including zebras, elephants, and giraffes.

 

“Get me on the phone,” he sings. “I be up late night talking like a smooth operator / Losing all control / I need that boom-boom right now, baby.”

 

 

Tweeting on the single, Omarion wrote:

 

 

This is Omarion’s second music visual offering for the year, as earlier this month he dropped a video for another single ‘BDY On Me,’ both singles said to be from his upcoming 2017 album, Reasons. This LP will be his first since his 2014’s Sex Playlist, and is expected to feature the fan anticipated singleAngel’ featuring Kehlani.

 

 

Omarion had an eventful 2016, firstly welcoming his second child, he silently left Mona Scott Young’s Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood, then he shockingly announced his split from his fiancée April Jones... and well, has been looking for some Insta-ttention ever since.

Last year O toured the UK, which we saw him headline Musicalize’s London date at KOKO, in Camden.

 

This time the 32-year old has tag teamed with Bobby V to bring a one-off show to the UK, promising to perform hits ‘O,’ ‘Tryna,’ ‘Entourage,’ ‘Post To Be’ and let us reminisce on Bobby V’s three R&B offerings ‘Slow Down,’ ‘Tell Me’ and ‘Anonymous’ – said to be a night not to be missed. The pair are set to perform at London’s Indigo at the O2, on Sunday April 2nd.
