OMI returns with 'I Want You'
Still riding high after enjoying triple platinum success in Europe with his recent collaboration titled 'Jambo' with Italian artiste Giusy Ferrari, singer OMI returns with 'I Want You'.
I Want You, a bouncy fusion of pop, reggae and dancehall is being released on Friday by Ultra Music.
OMI explained how the inspiration for the song came about.
"This track, funny enough, was demoed from a female's perspective but, myself and a few other writers changed it all up to match what I represent. It is always about love for me, giving the world and the fans different dimensions of my musicality. We did the track in London and the vibe was nothing but joy in the studio that day,” OMI shared.
Nat Young and Gian Varela produced 'I Want You'. It is the fourth single to be released from OMI’s upcoming sophomore album.
“This is the fourth single from my upcoming album and the songs are just my way to keep the fans engaged and delighted while we complete the album. It’s a taste of what’s coming and believe me, I am cooking this album and the main course will be served soon,” said OMI.
The previous singles released from the forthcoming album are 'Masterpiece', a collaboration with German platinum selling DJ Felix Jaehn, 'As Long As I am with You' featuring CMC$ and 'Better For Ya'.
Since the success of his multiplatinum selling chart topping single 'Cheerleader' in 2015, OMI has kept busy collaborating with several acts. They include 'Seasons' (with Shaggy), 'Never' (featuring Marcus and Martinus), and 'I Found a Girl' (with the Vamps).
In the years that have passed since releasing Cheerleader and his debut gold-selling full-length album ‘Me 4 U,’ OMI has recharged his body, mind, and soul by spending time with family in Jamaica. He has also been honing in on his craft —growing as a singer, songwriter, and performer. Now, he said he is ready to begin his next chapter.
