OmarionOmari Ishmael Grandberry (born November 12, 1984), better known by his stage name Omarion, is an American R&B singer, songwriter, actor, and dancer. He rose to prominence as the lead singer of the boy band B2K. The group achieved success in the early 2000s with their singles "Gots ta Be", "Uh Huh", "Girlfriend", and the number-one hit "Bump, Bump, Bump" (featuring P. Diddy).
After the group disbanded in 2004, Omarion embarked on a solo career with the release of his debut studio album, ''O'' (2005), which debuted atop the ''Billboard'' 200 chart. The album, gaining success from its title track, received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Contemporary R&B Album. The same year, he was featured on the hit single "Let Me Hold You" by Bow Wow, which peaked at number 4 on the ''Billboard'' Hot 100.
His second solo album, ''21'' (2006), became his second consecutive chart-topping album, spawning the hit single "Ice Box", which peaked at number 12 on the ''Billboard'' Hot 100—remaining his highest-charting single to date. He then released the collaborative album with Bow Wow titled ''Face Off'' (2007), and his third studio album, ''Ollusion'' (2010) to moderate success. He signed with Rick Ross' record label Maybach Music Group prior to the release of his fourth album, ''Sex Playlist'' in 2014. It was preceded by the lead single "Post to Be" (featuring Chris Brown and Jhené Aiko), which peaked within the top 20 of the ''Billboard'' Hot 100 and was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Omarion has also ventured into acting, with appearances in films such as ''You Got Served'', ''Fat Albert'', ''Somebody Help Me'' and ''The Proud Family Movie''. As a solo artist, he has received a BET Award, a Billboard Music Award, and a Soul Train Music Award. Provided by Wikipedia
