New Music: Omarion – ‘Sweet Anita’

Just in time for cuffing season, Omarion is back with a song for the ladies called “Sweet Anita.” The slow burner finds the Maybach Music crooner pushing his falsetto to the limit over bubbling synths and sparse percussion, and never leaves slow-jam speeds, as Omarion explores the upper registers amid hazy reverb.

Omarion is gearing up to release his new album Reasons on Oct. 23. “This is just a different body of work,” he told VIBE of the follow-up to last year’s Sex Playlist. “This is me in my transformation phase coming off of ‘Post to Be’ and Sex Playlist. Sex Playlist was like the birth of creation. I think it’s my most important album because prior to ‘Post to Be’ and its success, a lot of people were sleep.”

One of his critics includes “The Breakfast Club’s” Charlamagne Tha God, who ridiculed his album sales during an interview with Rick Ross. Omarion responded, saying, “When you gone learn fam? It’s 2015 & I’m still going up. Gold & platinum plaques is what Rozay said. Show some respect.”
