Omarion‘s new collection Reasons ought to have dropped today. His second full-length LP under MMG and follow-up to 2014’s Sex Playlist was unfortunately mysteriously absent. Rather than leaving his fans flat broke, Maybach O comes through with a front of Earth, Wind and Fire’s 1975 exemplary “Reasons.” Watch the R&B artist give his very own turn to the adoration song from 42 years prior.
Earth, Wind, and Fire’s “Reasons” is one of the finest melodies in all of recorded music. Philip Bailey’s ideal falsetto is a model for specialized control and capacity, yet when he gives himself over to the feeling of the tune seventy five percent in—that is the thing that individuals mean when they discuss soul.
