Let the nostalgia flow through your veins and seize control of your body altogether. Omarion and T-Pain have officially linked up, calling back to a pair of eras far removed from the sound of today. That’s not to say their collaboration sounds dated in the slightest – in many ways their new single “Can You Hear Me” feels like a natural progression for the two R&B veterans. Not only that, but the song also has the added benefit of being a comeback single for the once-mighty Omarion, who has recently seen his name making headlines for all the wrong reasons.
Musically, it’s hard not to see this one as a breath of fresh air. Taking to a bubbly instrumental fueled by the modern combo of 808s and “trap” hi-hats, Omarion allows himself room to flex like his glory days are only getting started. His confidence is only further emboldened by that of T-Pain, who thrives on tracks of this particular tempo; anyone familiar with the affable singer knows that his flow is nice, especially when he’s got the space to let it fly.
