The Video:

MarMar Oso is the consummate vibe-setter, packing swagger and slick storytelling into smooth-talking serenades since the earliest days of his young career. Today, the Northern California native returns to solidify himself as a hit-making heartthrob with his latest video single, “Independent.” A sensual salute to self-sufficient women, the track teems with tender admiration and desire for the kind of woman MarMar describes: “She don’t really need nobody/Getting to the bag is really her only hobby/Woah, yeah, dripped in designer clothes/She go to the nail shop and get white toes.”

The steamy video for “Independent” finds MarMar courting a love interest with flirtatious fervor. Whether he’s spitting game on a school day as a letterman-clad locker room loverboy or flying high in the clouds as a jewelry-dripped jetsetter, MarMar shows what lengths he’ll go to for his once-in-a-lifetime lover.

“Independent” arrives as MarMar prepares for his upcoming project, Good IntentionsThe follow-up to his twin 2020 projects Love Don’t Cost a Thing and Marvin’s RoomGood Intentions follows the 22-year-old artist through his journeys in modern love.

MarMar Oso allows everyone into his mind and heart. The Sacramento-born and Los Angeles-based R&B maverick born Marvin Webb, Jr. couples irresistible and inflective vocal vibes with vivid and vibrant storytelling as unfiltered as a DM. In 2018, he uploaded “Lost Feelings” to Soundcloud and effectively introduced himself as MarMar Oso. It paved the way for the Mixed Emotions EP and his 2019 album, Oso Different. Simultaneously, the single “Ruthless (Nice Guys Always Finish Last)” caught fire. It generated over 17 million Spotify streams and 13 million YouTube views. He kicked off 2020 with his next project, Love Don’t Cost A Thing, led by the single “Dream Girl.” Earmilk dubbed the latter, “a fusion of genres from ambient R&B and bedroom-pop to lighthearted hip-hop inflections.” Within a few months, the project delivered over 7 million streams. Along the way, he reached #1 on Rolling Stone’s “Trending 25” and #4 on the “Breakthrough 25.” He also held down a spot on Spotify’s US Viral 50 for a month. After posting up over 94 million streams independently, he invited an even closer connection on his third full-length album, Marvin’s Room [Free The Lost/EMPIRE] led by the singles “Relationship Goals,” and a Remix of “Ruthless” featuring superstars G-Eazy and Quando Rondo, and “Simp,”.
