Omarion


Omarion Ishmael Grandberry first appeared on the scene in Kellogg's Corn Pops commercial. He was the guy that fooled the football team into thinking there was a pep rally. He was then recruited into the new R&B group B2K, which means Boys of the Millennium . He beat out various teenagers to be the fourth member of the group.

He is considered the diplomat of the group and probably the most down to earth as well. Omarion, who goes by Omari, means African King. He and the others members (J-Boog, Raz-B and Lil Fizz worked with their mentors IMX on their first album-B2K.

The group toured with Lil Bow Wow during his 2001 tour and appeared on his Ghetto Girls video. The group appeared on The Jenny Jones Show, MTV, Soul Train, TEENick and the underachieving network known as BET. Between working on the album, Omari appeared in McDonalds commercials promoting their 99-cent menu.

The group worked on another album for Christmas-Santa Hooked Us Up. It was slated for a 2001 Christmas release, but was held up due to various delays on the release of the B2K album. It came out a few months later to decent sales.

Omari was born Englewood, Ca. on September 12, 1984. He has 6 siblings-ORyan, Amira, Arielle, Ukil, Tymon and Kira.

The group released B2K: The Remixes that featured remixes of a few of their songs along with a song by Jhene. Most of the remixes could be found on various DJ records heard in night clubs.

The group released their second album Pandemonium and re-released it again with a DVD and bonus songs from the first album and an unreleased song.

Omari once dated Solange, the sister of Beyonce, who once dated his brother Marques. The group finished a movie called You Got Served (A remake of Breakin) and the soundtrack. Omari and Marques play two brothers (Pun?) that attempt to win a dance contest against another group.

To help promote the movie the group signed a deal with Dr. Pepper and Southpole clothing as the movie was set for a Superbowl weekend release.

On 12-31-03-B2K broke up. J-Boog, Raz-B and Fizz signed with new management. Omari stayed with Chris Stokes as he went to the hospital for surgery. Various issues came up as money, abuse and freedom were the issues that ended the group.

As a result of the breakup the movie You Got Served does not mention the the group's name or him. After the surprise poularity of the movie, Omari got casted in the Fat Albert movie with Raven, Kenan Thompson and Jeremy Suarez.

The remaining members of B2K have tried to get back together, however Omari has pretty much ignored them. Fans in return have ignored him and booed him at concerts and boycott his music.

Omarion went to work on his self titled cd. The first single was O, followed by Touch and finally I'm Tryin. He went to work with Bow Wow for the hit song Let Me Hold You. The two later joined forces again for the Scream 4 Tour with Marques Houtson and a limited release cd featuring the remix version of I'm tryin.
