Omarion Reacts to Being Replaced by Lloyd on Young Money Single

Omarion and Lloyd

After his split with Young Money in August, Omarion hit another “Rock” when he was replaced by Lloyd on the rap crew’s new single. He shares his reaction with Rap-Up.com.

The former B2K member originally sang the hook on “Girl You Know,” later retitled “BedRock,” for December 15th’s Young Money compilation We Are Young Money. When asked what he thought of his replacement, “You” singer Lloyd, Omarion said, “That’s interesting. I heard it. It didn’t bother me.”

O was first contacted about remaining on the song or having someone else sing his hook. “I was contacted and they told me they wanted to potentially use my version of the song or have someone else sing it because I wrote the hook.”

In the end, his vocals and lyrics were swapped for Lloyd’s. “Lloyd did another hook. That’s what’s so interesting to me too,” he shared. “Technically people didn’t have to know that [I wrote the hook if Lloyd would've sang my version]. I didn’t go and tell nobody before the song came out.”

But Omarion still thinks he outshined his R&B counterpart. “Truthfully, I thought mine was better.”

    lmao oh lord omarion, why? look, i love me some omarion but that boy is a little cocky right there but i agree, personally i like omarion’s hook [lyrically, more original] more than lloyd. lets be honest, how many times are people going to use the phrase “call me mr flinestone i can make your bed rock” thats played out. but i will say lloyd covered the entire track better than omarion did, lloyd let it be known that “lloyd is on this track!” you had to find out omarion was on the track once the verse came along.

    i like omarion’s hook better (lyrically more creative) but i like the way lloyd dominates the entire track more. i think they both did a good job. people like to compare too much

    Are we listening to the same tracks?? Clearly Lloyd did a much better job than Omarion. Whether or not the lyrics were not original or whatever I think Lloyd’s version sounds more full and ready for the radio. Omarions sounds more mixtape than retail. Plus I think Lloyd’s whole style and approach fits better with Young Money than O

    Omarion’s is better lyrically, but Lloyd’s voice is more fitting for this song. I just want to see the “I Get It In” video.

    I gotta say I like O’s hook way better. The beat is so unusual with the hook…it just sounds more unique. He thought more outside the box.

    I do puffer Lloyd’s voice though. His hook is just a lil more predictable, more of an obvious sound to go with the beat.

    Both are good, but O’s version is better. For radio they’ll probably keep Lloyd’s version though.

    Oh and I love the production!

    the beat of the song is amazing.. gd job by kane beatz for producing it, saying that i find Lloyd’s hook matches the beat better and has the better flow. He also has a better voice and its more catchy
