Omarion has been gearing up to release his new album “Reasons” within the coming months. The R&B singer who stated that his next album is about going to the next level has been doing a lot lately in order to get to the top. His music has expanded in sound and features a more dance vibe than previous works.
“Okay Ok” is a fun-loving and upbeat song that was made specifically to get up on your feet and bust out a few moves. Check it out.
Aaliyah was one of the best R&B artists that helped to push the genre into the mainstream. She had a string of hits that were quite successful and have become classics in their own right. “A Girl Like You” is one of Aaliyah’s best tracks with its p-funk vibe and mellow feel. Treach from Naughty by Nature provides a nice feature to compliment Aaliyah’s vocals.
