Sunday Selection Omarion ft/Lil Wayne I Get It In
Whats up everybody! Hope all is well. If you havent heard the latest, rumors have been flying around all week about singer Omarions alleged departure from Young Money Entertainment. Is he with still rolling with Weezy and Company? Is he dropped? Or did he leave on his own? Those are the questions that have been posed, but whatever the circumstances are in the midst of it all a track titled I Get It In has surfaced. And as much as I love a good ole duet, this one with Omarion and Lil Wayne doesnt have me jumping for joy. Its not anything earth shattering or something I expect to be a big hit, just sounds like Omarion was trying replicate a sound thats popular amongst todays artists to blend in with his new crew. Now the last time I checked Omarion was a singer, but on this track it sounds more like hes trying to rap then sing. Omarion stay in your lane homiee! I know your trying to fit in with what everybody else is currently sounding like, but uh I would much rather hear an up tempo R&B joint that shows your vocal range with Lil Wayne on it than whatever this song is. But hey, sometimes artists like to do something different and take a risk. Do you! I aint mad at that but I just think you might have wasted Lil Waynes guest spot because this song will probably never do much. Youre not the first R&B artist to have Lil Wayne on your track and it not turn out to be a hit or will you be the last. In the end it just shows that everything Wayne touches doesnt always turn into gold. Omarion we havent heard much from you in a long time, and I must admit theres room for you out here in the game, but make your return something were going to enjoy and appreciate. Dont fall victim to following the trends. Well everybody you know how Im feeling about this new joint. Tell me how you feel! Thanks for taking time out to read what I had to say. Until next week check out this weeks Sunday Selection I Get It In.
