The chart-topping R&B superstar Omarion and the groundbreaking entertainment network BET have joined forces to make Omarion's new single, "Entourage," available for the first time in any format as a ringtone exclusively through BET Mobile.
The new Omarion single, "Entourage," will premiere on the BET hit series, "106 & Park," on Friday, May 12 (check your local listings). Fans will hear the song for the first time and learn how to get their exclusive Omarion "Entourage" ringtone:
To download the exclusive ringtone of "Entourage," the new Omarion single, directly to their mobile phones, cellphone users simply text message the letter "O" (for Omarion) to "23888".
"Entourage" is the first taste of Omarion's upcoming sophomore album, one of the year's most eagerly-awaited new releases.
When Omarion's debut album, O, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 bestselling albums chart at #1 the week of its release in March 2000, the contemporary R&B powerhouse (who rose to stardom while still in his teens as a frontman for the groundbreaking urban "boy band" B2K) entered the ranks of bona fide hip-hop stardom.
Tracks from O -- including "O," "Drop That Heater," "I Wish," "I'm Tryna," "Never Gonna Let You Go (She's A Keepa)," and "Touch" -- have generated sales of more than a million ringtones. The video for "O," the title track from Omarion's debut solo album, peaked at #1 on BET's "106 & Park."
Born and raised in Inglewood, California, Omarion rose to fame while still a teen as a member of the groundbreaking urban "boy band" B2K. His soulful vocals and undeniable charisma helped B2K score a hit with the group's very first single, "Uh Huh," in 2001; achieve gold status with the group's self- titled debut album in 2002; and go RIAA platinum with the group's best-selling sophomore outing, Pandemonium! in 2003.
Omarion's undeniable mediageniality has led to numerous television guest appearances including "Punk'd," "The Sharon Osbourne Show," and "Soul Train." In addition to his musical performances, Omarion has acted on the big screen with key roles in "You Got Served" and "Fat Albert." Omarion stars in "Somebody Help Me," an innovative horror film directed by Chris Stokes and has been attached to screenwriter/producer Tyger Williams' ("Menace II Society") upcoming "Street Soldier."
