Happy Birthday, Omarion!
While the other members B2K have struggled after their 2003 breakup, Omarion has managed to keep his career afloat over a decade later. King O celebrates his 33rd birthday today (Nov. 12).
Omarion's post-B2K life hasn't reached the superstardom post-*NSYNC member Justin Timberlake or post-Destiny's Child singer Beyoncé. However, he stayed in the public eye by sporadically releasing great single. "O," a thinly veiled sexual metaphor, was his first; the song climbed up the urban charts and was a fixture on 106 & Park. "Touch" and the moody "Ice Box" are two his most recognizable hits.
Omarion bounced back in 2014 with his chart-topping hit "Post to Be" featuring Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko. King O also put his life on reality TV as a cast member Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. His relationship with Apryl Jones may have suffered from it. The couple broke up in July 2016 after having two children together, son Megaa Omari Grandberry and daughter A’mei Kazuko Grandberry.
Omarion is still working on music. After a brief hiatus, the R&B singer is set to release the fourth edition his popular Care Package mixtape series. Care Package 4 will drop on Nov. 17. The EP boasts four songs including the first single, “Open Up.”
Care Package 4 is a precursor to his t-delayed studio album, Reasons, which is the follow-up to his 2014 LP Sex Playlist.
Overall, it looks like Omarion is ready for the next chapter in his life. Happy Birthday, King O!
