Omarion is the newest signee of MMG, and in a recent interview he talks about how it came together and peoples' perception of him.
Â On "Maybach O":
"Yeah, Maybach O. Thatâs the new movement, man. Iâm so excited. I canât even express, you know, how excited I am, you know what I mean? And just how this whole thing came along, man, itâs justâ¦Itâs been a blessing. Thereâs a difference between your time and when you want to do things and Godâs time, you know what I mean? And this right here man, itâs been Godâs time, man. I saw Ross in North Carolina, you know, and I was telling him likeÂ [...] 'Yo, Iâm âbout toâ¦you know, I need you on these records, man, you know what Iâm sayinâ? Iâm âbout to do this ill so and so with so and so.' And he was like 'Man, we need to have a conversation before that.' And we sat down and he said some real important things to me that not even executives have said to me, you know what I mean? He showed that love and he showed that respect and he was like 'I believe in you,'Â you know what I mean? I canât even count to you how many times on my hand in my whole career that Iâve actually had people tell me that."
On other peoples' perception of Omarion:
"They ask me if I still dance, you know what I mean? Which is crazy. They ask me if I still sings, which is crazy, you know what I mean? Of course, I hear about the babies and the ladies and, you know what I mean, a whole slew of other things that people who sit behind a computer do, you know what I mean? But, I think that weâre in a great time in music right now, you know. I think twitter is also, you know â and Instagram and Facebook â is giving the fans more insight, you know, into who the real person is. Thatâs why I said itâs the most interesting time in my career because itâs like, who has seen, you know, young men start so young. Like, thereâs literally only two awards that I donâtâ have and thatâs a VMA and a Grammy, you know what I mean? And itâs like, I have to get to that place, you know what I mean? Like Iâve done so much, you know what I mean? So, now itâs time to get the VMA."
