Omarion is not a man of subtlety on his new track, but we’d expect nothing less from the artist who gave us Sex Playlist.
“#Nudes” gives it all away in the title, and while Omarion is up-front with his request for salacious DMs, the way that the song unfolds is a little more surprising.
Cascading synths light the way, building a lush backdrop for O’s conversational singing on the verses, each closing syllable echoing in stereo. A female voice is sampled on the hook, bouncing off of his audacious request with a “Really??”
Just last month, Omarion shared his Care Package 4 EP, but he’s yet to deliver his long-promised Reasons album. O shared the song on Twitter today with the simple instruction, “For your listening pleasure.”
It’s not clear whether the song is tied to an upcoming release, but it’s certainly strong enough to begin a rollout.
