Omar Samuel Pasley, better known as OMI, is just about leaving the charts with his song “Cheerleader”, while a new song “Hula Hoop” is ready to take the success over.
The “Cheerleader” singer could now be categorized as a dance artist, but he usually fuses reggae with pop. In fact, the original version of “Cheerleader” was a nice little reggae song until a record company came up with the idea to remix it.
When the idea of a remix was born, two people were approached to create a remix. Ricky Blaze updated it to a dancehall remix, but the speeded up house version by Felix Jaehn is the one we all know and love.
