OMI Says Album 'Me 4 U' Represents His "Diversity" Past "Cheerleader"

OMI may have had the song of the summer with "Cheerleader," but the Jamaica-born singer is eager to show the world he's more than the breakout single. His debut full-length Me 4 U came out in October and is currently being promoted by the excellent, house-inspired "Hula Hoop"—just one of the surprises the 29-year-old says you'll find on the LP.

"Me 4 U captures the essence of diversity and that's exactly what we set out to do with the album," OMI tells Fuse. "All the songs are special, all the songs are different."

Other than showing his range, OMI says the album, and in particular its title, perfectly represent the message he's trying to get out to his biggest supporters.

"We're trying to be hip," he says of the LP's title. "It's like how you text. It's a simple form of writing, it's relatable. I think a lot of people will be able to connect to it. Also, it's a gift from me to my fans. Me 4 U, it says it all."
