The MMG crooner’s forthcoming album will feature Kehlani on the song “Angels.”
It’s been a couple years in the making, but Omarion’s forthcoming album, Reasons, looks to finally be right around the corner. In a new interview with Rap-Up, the MMG crooner revealed some further details about the follow up to 2014’s Sex Playlist, including the title of its first single “Distance,” which he already shot a music video down in South Africa for.
“I can’t wait for people to hear, for people to see it,” he said about “Distance”. “We shot the video in South Africa. That was an amazing experience. We actually shot three different videos over there. It was an amazing experience to be in a place…for the first time. You’re really connected with the experience…The video is amazing. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
In addition to the lead single however, Omarion also revealed that Bay Area singer Kehlani will be featured on the album as well.
“We have a song called ‘Angel’ that’s pretty awesome,” O told Rap-Up. “I remember the first time I met her. We were doing a show…I watched her perform. Everyone had been talking about her. I had to do my research. Everyone had been telling me, ‘She’s dope. She’s fly. She has a dope personality.’ It was super cool to make music with her. The song we did is super cool because I think people are gonna love how she sounds on this song. People love how she sounds and this song we have is super special.”
For what it’s worth, Omarion told us [HNHH] back in August of 2015 that Reasons would also see the likes of Nic Nac, James Fauntleroy, and Verse Simmonds all featured on there as well, but who knows if the same tracklist/songs still exist though. At least we now know Kehlani is though.
Watch the new interview (here), and be on the lookout for the single “Distraction” to surface soon. In the meantime, revisit his latest release “It’s Whatever” to hold you over.
