R&B Singer / Love & HipHop Hollywood star, Omarion has had quite the musical journey. Even with two number one solo albums under his belt, Omarion has also come faced with ‘floppery’ like many of today’s most successful acts. ‘Maybach O’ did what most artist fail to do, go back to the drawing board, and develop a winning sound.
In November 2012, Omarion released his first mixtape ‘Care Pakage’ since inking his current deal with Rick Ross’, Maybach Music Group. The modern day R&B cadence of the project is what captured us. Housing gems like Private Dancer, Arch It Up, and the Wale assisted single MIA, Care Package lowkey became the savior to what was missing in R&B. Vocally, Omarion was very remniscent of Brandy‘s Full Moon effort, as he crooned each song with perfectly placed background vocals, and intentional runs. The lyrics had a great blend of metaphoric yet literal content. The mix-tape became our top mix-tape throughout 2013, until its saga, ‘Care Package 2’ was unleashed in November 2013.
‘Care Package 2’ really set the mood for who Omarion was and is as an artist. Providing some of our favorite R&B songs to date like Love Other Drugs, Between The Covers, and Know You Better, ‘O’ had certainly stolen our ears, and raped them repetitively.
There is no reason why true R&B lovers shouldn’t be celebrating this Labor Day with Omarion’s Care Package 1&2. They provide the perfect balance of #feelgood, and #turnup, and you wont have to worry about skipping songs during your festivities as you can allow them to play straight through.
