Omarion is back at it again, this time he’s released the music video for his latest single “Word for Word.” This track is off his upcoming highly anticipated album Reasons.
He recently spoke with Complex on how hard he worked on editing the “Word for Word” music video:
“Over the last three or four days I’ve been editing a mini-movie. I’m a living, breathing child of one of the greatest to ever do it, Michael Jackson. I’ve been in the edit for the last couple of days, and it’s been by far the longest edit I’ve ever had to do.”
The “Word for Word” video shows Omarion travelling around Japan. We see him dancing in the streets, cloning himself, surrounding himself with beautiful women, and showing the world how beautiful Japanese culture really is. He says that this video is his way of expressing his love for Japanese culture without being disrespectful or a “vulture”:
“It’s true art and an exchange of culture. There are always conversations about culture vultures and what’s appropriate, and I think this is a great example of doing it the right way.”
As for when his new album Reasons will be released, he says:
“We’re talking about the record business and business is complicated. I’ve never truly been concerned about the opinions of executives, because my art and creativity is meant to be shared with people who want it. I hope that when it comes out, it gets its proper time. But the fans have the power so I do need people who appreciate the music to share it. This is not new news, but no one had control over ‘Post to Be.’ It took six months for ‘Post to Be,’ and the fans made it happen. So it’s about us finding our rhythm, me and my fans.”
