We could all breathe a sigh of relief because Omarion has gotten a new record deal. However, that’s not the only major change in the former B2K member’s life as he has adopted a new nickname to mark this major event in his life.
To commemorate signing to Rick Ross’ Maybach Music label, Omarion has picked the nickname Maybach O. He is currently planning to release his first single from the label, ‘Let’s Talk’, which features Ross and will appear on his new EP.
When asked about why he signed Maybach O to his label, Ross stated the following:
“I ran into the homie, we had a few conversations and I flew him down to Miami and he played me a dozen records,” he said. “I was amazed by the music he put together. We had a few conversations and we made a situation happen.”
“He’s a phenomenal entertainer. His dancing is incredible. He’s an actor, he’s a writer. I thought it would be a great move for both of us. I’ve been looking to enter the R&B arena, I felt he was the best artist to kick the doors open.”
So, Maybach O signed with Ross to be used a test subject as the label experiments with R&B? I guess beggars can’t be choosers so let’s just be happy that Maybach O finally has a roof over his head and a new group of friends.
