Sadly, having a platinum single doesn’t warrant a Grammy nomination and Omarion expressed his feelings about it. Following the release of this year’s list of nominees, the MMG singer tweeted about his Grammy snub for “Post To Be” featuring Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko.
Omarion took to social media to express his frustration with not being nominated and speaking highly of the record.
"'Post to be' is one of the greatest R&B collaborations ever. CB, Jhene, & myself been in the game 10+," he wrote in a series of posts. "Even though people act like its easy to make a hit (& it's not). As an artist you look forward to being acknowledged by the game. The odds have always been against me. I constantly prove you wrong. I'll consistently do great things & you will have to celebrate me."
“Post To Be,” which has a video boasting over 300 million views on YouTube, was featured on Omarion’s last album, Sex Playlist. The album was released in December 2014 and served as the singer’s debut under Rick Ross’ MMG.
Back in September, Omarion spoke on the success of “Post To Be” and revealed plans for his fifth studio effort.
"It’s titled Reasons and this is my fifth installment," he said. "This is just a different body of work. This is me in my transformation phase coming off of 'Post To Be' and Sex Playlist. Sex Playlist was like the birth of creation. I think it’s my most important albums because prior to “Post To Be” and its success, a lot of people were sleep."
Last month, he released a new mixtape, an addition to his series: Care Package 3. The 8-track tape features contributions from BJ the Chicago Kid, Rich Homie Quan and more.
