Multi-Platinum Recording Artist OMI Returns With Reggae-Pop Summer Anthem “Hello Hater” feat. Bori — Via Ultra Records

(Los Angeles, CA) Hot off the heels of his critically acclaimed chart-topping single “​Cheerleader​” and the recent release of his international anthem “I Want You,” multi-platinum reggae-pop singer/songwriter ​OMI returns with “Hello Hater,” out today via Ultra Records. Drawing from his Jamaican roots,​ OMI​ reintroduces himself with a unique blend of airy reggae, dancehall beats and sticky pop hooks that are sure to be a bouncy summer hit.

“This particular single is amongst some of my personal favorites to be released over the coming months,” OMI states. “ I think Bori and I complimented the vibe of the song, and I think it’s giving a true reflection of where I am musically which means showing versatility and dimensions to my ability as an artist.”

LISTEN “HELLO HATER”

OMI​ established himself as an international artist to watch through a string of viral releases, including his world renowned single “​Cheerleader​,” which spent six nonconsecutive weeks at ​No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart​, went​ 5x Platinum​, and garnered over 4 million Spotify weekly streams. The music video for the ​Felix Jaehn​ remix alone has accumulated almost 950 million YouTube streams​ to date, numbers comparable to those of international superstars. He’s performed on ​The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,​ ​Good Morning America, a​nd ​America’s Got Talent​ ​— and that’s just in the U.S. The worldwide success of “​Cheerleader”​ earned ​OMI ​collaborations with ​The Vamps​ (“​I Found a Girl​”),​ Shaggy ​(“​Seasons​”), and ​Marcus & Martinus​ (“​Never​”) in the years that followed. In 2018, he reunited with German producer ​Felix Jaehn​ for their single “​Masterpiece​,” which has accumulated 36+ million streams on Spotify. The uptempo, summery track encourages women to find beauty in themselves as they are, in a digital age that often pushes the other way.

In the years that have passed since releasing “​Cheerleader​” and his debut full-length album ‘​Me 4 U​,’ OMI has recharged his body, mind, and soul by spending time with family in Jamaica. He’s also been honing in on his craft —growing as a singer, songwriter, and performer. Now, he’s ready to begin his next chapter. With​ 5+ Million Monthly listeners​ and more than a ​BILLION Streams​, OMI is pleased to release this second look off his upcoming album — a project that will fuse elements of Pop, Reggae, and Dancehall and showcase OMI’s continuous progression as an artist.
