Omarion released his first project on Maybach Music Group last year with the Care Package EP, but now he’s readying his first full-length album since joining Rick Ross’ empire. The LP will be titled Love & Other Drugs (yeah, the namesake of the 2010 rom-com starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Anne Hathaway). In an interview with VIBE, Maybach O revealed that the album — his fourth in total — will speak “from more of an honest place” and will look to revive that classic R&B sound of old, à la R. Kelly and Jodeci. Jhené Aiko is a confirmed guest.
I’ve matured and experienced older women, experienced certain things in love and to life. It’s like I’m speaking differently. Speaking from more of an honest place where I’ve actually experienced [things]. Because when men go through something with a woman it’ll change your whole point of view. It’ll make you poetic and all kinds of shit.
