Omarion asked for a release from Sony BMG in early 2009. In mid August, he was announced on the roster of Lil Wayne's label Young Money Entertainment.

Ollusion received generally positive reviews from contemporary music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 71, which indicates "generally favorable reviews", based on 4 reviews.Allmusic's editor Andy Kellman found it "Almost all of these beats would be classified as snapping, slapping, or smacking before banging, flecked with details yet simultaneously somewhat half-assed-sounding. Given the number of partially detached vocals, filled with android-in-heat impersonations, clipped-phrase drop-ins, and messing around, it's as if Omarion wanted to make a concerted attempt to downplay his vocal ability, which only adds to the album's weird, teasing charm.". Monica Herrera of Billboard magazine wrote that the album "The set come off more like a bid for street cred than maturation. Lyrics full of hip-hop bravado over dirty, and distortion-heavy beats. But when Omarion reaches for the high notes, he shines like a seasoned star.". Jon Caramanica of The New York Times wrote that "Clunky lyrics are everywhere, undoing some of the progress Omarion has made. The otherwise lovely "Speedin'," Omarion's most convincing song here.".
