AllMusic Review by

After some snags, Omarion finally released his first Maybach Music Group album, Sex Playlist, in late 2014. While it was issued only as a digital download, it deserved a full promotional push and physical release from Maybach parent label Atlantic, as it was one of the year's best sets of contemporary R&B. True to its title, Sex Playlist is more slow jam-oriented than any of Omarion's Epic and EMI albums. The singer mixes romantic and salacious sentiments over sinewy productions, and only a small fraction of the 13 cuts -- including the DJ Mustard-produced "Post to Be," featuring Chris Brown and Jhene Aiko -- are midtempo. On "You Like It," he boldly shows off his falsetto and successfully interpolates DeBarge in the process.
