Get to know OMI, one of the newest artists on the rise, via our Popping Up feature.

It may be sub-freezing temps outside, but feel-good hit-maker OMI is here to bring a bit of sunshiny pop goodness to January with the colorful video for his latest single, “Drop In The Ocean.” The song follows up the 29-year-old Jamaican crooner’s previous smash “Cheerleader” — one of the 10 biggest-selling tracks of 2015 — and its follow-up, “Hula Hoop.”

“Drop In The Ocean” gives us OMI doing what he does best: Singing a bright love song over a reggae-pop beat while flanked by a crew of beautiful women. The video was directed by Daniel Czernilofsky, and if you blink twice, you might miss a quick cameo by featured artist AronChupa.

“Drop In The Ocean,” like global smash “Cheerleader” and “Hula Hoop,” appears on OMI’s debut LP Me 4 U. Incidentally, we’re premiering this video on Idolator just one day shy of a full year since we declared “Cheerleader” would be a future smash.
