“OMG” is a song by American recording artist Usher and American rapper will.i.am, who also wrote and produced the song. It uses the auto-tune effect in several lines, as well as Jock Jams-esque sports arena chanting. It was released on March 22, 2010 as the first worldwide single off his sixth studio album, Raymond v. Raymond, and the fourth single overall, following the three US singles “Papers”, “Hey Daddy (Daddy’s Home)”, and “Lil Freak”.

OMG was written and produced by The Black Eyed Peas frontman, will.i.am. The tune was recorded at Chung King Studios, New York City. Dylan “3-D” Dresdow mixed the record at Paper V.U. Studios, North Hollywood. The vocal sample of a crowd shouting “owowowo” used in the song was recorded by will.i.am while performing with The Black Eyed Peas on the French TV show Taratata.
