OFM produced and co-wrote the 5 times worldwide Billboard No. 1 single “Down” (Featuring Lil Wayne) as well as the second single, “Do You Remember” (featuring Sean Paul and Lil Jon), peaking at No. 10 on the Hot 100 and rapidly selling over a million units, itself. These two platinum selling singles charted in the Billboard top 10 and the Billboard hot 100 at the same time, which had not been accomplished by a male artist since 2003. OFM is currently involved with touring, sponsorships, TV appearances, and clothing lines with Jay Sean, as well.
