Before venturing into the music industry, the charming and self-confident boy appeared on a several commercials, including McDonald’s and Kelloggs Corn Pops’.

Due to the success of such songs as “Gots Ta Be” and “Why I Love You”, B2K hit Billboard 200 at No.2 and sold nearly 110 thousand copies during the week after it was released. The revenues from this album made a solid contribution to Omarion net worth. Within a year the boys released their second and last studio album, Pandemonium!. This album featured three successful singles, “Bump Bump Bump”, “Girlfriend” and a remake of “Why I Love You”. It peaked at No. 10 on Billboard 200 and sold nearly 200 thousand copies the first week.
