Big R&B Moments of 2012: Omarion Signs to Maybach Music Group
Out of all the comebacks this year, Omarion's had to be the one no one saw coming. In April, TheSource.com revealed that the former B2K crooner could be signing with the Rick Ross-led Maybach Music Group. But it wasn't until a press conference the following month that the news was officially announced. Omarion, now known as Maybach O, found himself rubbing elbows with the likes of MMG stars Meek Mill and Wale.
O upgraded with this move, which essentially brought back his cool. On Nov. 29, he released his new EP, 'Care Package,' his first project since signing to MMG. The crooner's focus is on his dedicated fan base, who have grown with him through the years. In an interview with Billboard he affirmed his direction. "This is the real grown-up me," he said. "This is that age when Beyonce had ‘Crazy in Love’ and Michael Jackson had ‘Thriller,’ when Justin Timberlake had ‘FutureSex/LoveSounds.’ I feel like I’m at that age. I can’t wait to display this new me.”
