Omarion Is Making A Jaw-Dropping Change After The B2K Tour In Light Of 'Surviving R. Kelly'

"While I know our fans would be greatly disappointed..."

Published January 7th

As the #MuteRKelly movement gains its ground in the midst of the bombshell Surviving R. Kelly docu-series exposé, the voices of Hollywood’s favorites are gaining volume as well.

But only a handful of the industry is speaking out thus far, and in light of one of 2019’s most highly-anticipated relics of R&B—B2K’s reunifying Millennium Tour—Omarion is stepping forth with his stance on the controversy via Twitter. The lead vocalist of the early ‘00s boy group hasn’t tuned in to the six-part Lifetime documentary like everyone else. But with enough evidence laid out on the table and B2K’s collaborative history with R. Kelly, he’s making an executive decision about a few workings from his own catalog that every Millennium Tour ticketholder should be aware of.

  1. He started off by explaining that Kelly has indeed penned songs for the B2K

    Thus, he felt most compelled to share his voice on the matter.

     

  2. Additionally, he continued, there’s several more people to address within the context of the issue as well
  3. Sending prayers and hopes for rehabilitation to ‘everyone affected by this tragedy’…
  4. O announced that he’d be shelving all the songs penned by R. Kelly after the tour

    “While I know our fans would be greatly disappointed if we didn’t perform those songs on #TheMillenniumTour,” he wrote, “after the tour I am retiring those songs from my set list.” As a father of a young Black girl himself, he lauds “A.A.R.T. (Artists Acknowledging Responsibility And Truth.”)

    *Cues slow clap.*
