Omarion Steps In T.O.K’s

T.O.K. | Discography | DiscogsFootprints, the hit song by disbanded dancehall quartet T.O.K, is being given new life thanks to an Instagram post by popular American artiste Omarion.

In his post, Omarion uses the popular song — which is set to the Drop Leaf rhythm created by producer Don Corleon in 2004 — as the soundtrack for his post on protecting Mother Earth.

“Trees release oxygen when they use energy from sunlight to make glucose from carbon dioxide and water. According to the Taoist masters, trees are powerful. Not only do they absorb carbon dioxide and change it into oxygen, but trees can also absorb negative energy and turn it into positive ones. Make sure you thank Mother Earth today,” Omarion noted.

Group member Craigy “Craigy T” Thompson was among the first to respond to the post by the American pop star.

“Respect fam, @omarion. Been a long time, bredrin,” he said.

T.O.K and Omarion have had a close relationship over the years and the quartet toured with the singer a few years ago.

Fellow T.O.K group members Allistaire “Alex” McCalla noted that the music of the group is still potent.

T.O.K, which also includes Roshaun “Bay-C” Clarke and Xavier “Flexx” Davidson, was formed in the early 1990s. The foursome rose to become one of several major forces in Jamaican music before they announced their split five years ago. The quartet still does spot gigs all over the world but is not recording new material.
