MarMar Oso became a fast-rising star in and beyond his Sacramento hometown with his colorful charisma, empathic pen and silky-smooth vocals. Today, the North Cali crooner continues his hot streak of heartbreak anthems with his playfully poignant project, Good Intentions, available now via Free The Lost/EMPIRE.
The emotional 10-track album, led by vibrant singles like “Independent” and “Flirt,” featuring Bino Rideaux and produced by Internet Money, sees MarMar flex his mastery of vibe-setting songwriting as he floats from breezy, buoyant bangers like “Losing You” featuring Luh Kel, to heart-wrenching heat on tracks like “Where You Left Me” featuring Teejay3k, and intoxicated infatuation on “Fall For It.” Though MarMar is seen playing the heartbreaker on the Good Intentions cover, the project itself peels back the curtain to expose the introspective, vulnerable sincerity of the singer-songwriter that the Sacramento scene and R&B have been missing— a beacon of tenderness in the age of toxicity.
Born in Hawaii and raised in Sacramento, MarMar Oso began singing at church when he was 2 years old, and hasn’t stopped since. In 2018, MarMar made his debut with the music video for “Lost Feelings” from his Mixed Emotions EP, the success of which allowed him to quit his part-time job at UPS to fully pursue music. He went on to take the world by storm with the viral success of the GOLD-certified “Ruthless (Nice Guys Always Finish Last),” from his 2019 debut album, Oso Different, which boasts over 178 million streams on Spotify and over 37 million views on YouTube, and inspired a remix featuring G-Eazy and Quando Rondo. Since releasing back-to-back projects in 2020, with Love Don’t Cost a Thing and Marvin’s Room, MarMar has waited patiently to take his sound and career to new heights as he does now with the release of Good Intentions.

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,”.
