Omari Ishmael Grandberry, 12 November 1984, Inglewood, California, USA. Vocalist Omarion launched his solo career at the start of 2004 following the surprise break-up of his former group, the highly successful R&B boy band B2K. His solo work followed the direction of B2Ks US number 1 hit Bump, Bump, Bump, a raunchy collaboration with P. Diddy written by R. Kelly. Leading producers and songwriters including the Neptunes and Rodney Jerkins were brought in to beef up the sound on his debut O. The Underdogs-produced title track was a US Top 20 hit at the start of 2005, paving the way for the album to make its debut at the top of the US charts. During recording sessions for his debut album Omarion also found the time to appear as Reggie in Bill Cosbys Fat Albert. He had made his acting debut earlier in 2004 alongside the rest of B2K in their lamentable street dancing movie, You Got Served.
