Listen: OMI Drops ‘Cheerleader’ Follow-Up, ‘Hula Hoop’

Reggae singer/songwriter Omi drops “Hula Hoop,” a follow-up to his six-week chart-topper “Cheerleader.”  The Jamaican-born Omar Samuel Pasley, who Taylor Swift brought out during her 1989 Tour on Saturday night (August 29) in California, keeps the momentum going with another hit-in-the-making. He has also announced his debut album, entitled ME 4 U, which will be released on October 16.


The breezy summer anthem follows much of the sticky-sweet pop formula of his first smash, right down to the sax that punctuates the song’s breakdown sections, and packs a chorus nearly as addictive “Round and round your loving winds me up, like a hula-hula-hula hoop,” he sings. Listen the track below.
