MORE ABOUT OMI:
OMI established himself as an international artist to watch through a string of viral releases, including his world-renowned single “Cheerleader,” which spent six non-consecutive weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, went 5x Platinum, and garnered over 4 million Spotify weekly streams. The music video for the Felix Jaehn remix alone has accumulated almost 950 million YouTube streams to date, numbers comparable to those of international superstars. He’s performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Good Morning America, and America’s Got Talent — and that’s just in the U.S. The worldwide success of “Cheerleader” earned OMI collaborations with The Vamps (“I Found a Girl”), Shaggy (“Seasons”), and Marcus & Martinus (“Never”) in the years that followed. In 2018, he reunited with German producer Felix Jaehn for their single “Masterpiece,” which has accumulated 36+ million streams on Spotify. The uptempo, summery track encourages women to find beauty in themselves as they are, in a digital age that often pushes the other way.
In the years that have passed since releasing “Cheerleader” and his debut full-length album ‘Me 4 U,’ OMI has recharged his body, mind, and soul by spending time with family in Jamaica. He’s also been honing in on his craft —growing as a singer, songwriter, and performer. Now, he’s ready to begin his next chapter. With 5+ Million Monthly listeners and more than a BILLION Streams, OMI is pleased to release this second look off his upcoming album — a project that will fuse elements of Pop, Reggae, and Dancehall and showcase OMI’s continuous progression as an artist.
