GRAMMY® nominated R&B/Hip Hop artist Mack Wilds will be making his national morning television show debut on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” performing his hit single “Own It” on March 19. Mack is featured in the Sean John Spring “Dream Big” ad campaign, which spotlights men who have made their dreams a reality. The campaign also includes Rob Beitzel, Chef Roble Ali, Pheo and Cashius Green. “We worked with the next generation of dream makers; men of creativity, vision, and drive…men who can follow in the footsteps of a visionary like Mr. Combs,” says Jeff Tweedy, president of Sean John. The collection is currently available at Macy’s stores nationwide.
Released late last year, Mack Wilds’ critically acclaimed debut album New York: A Love Story continues to generate buzz. “Own It” proved to be a hit with radio play across the country, earning him a spot on Billboard’s Most Added Airplay Charts for several weeks in a row.
His new single “Henny,” is currently available on iTunes. With lyrics written by Mack Wilds, the track was produced by SalaAM ReMi and rapper/producer Havoc, and also includes a sample from Mobb Deep’s hit song “The Learning (Burn).” Mack is currently filming a remix video of the song, which will feature Busta Rhymes, Mobb Deep and French Montana, due to be released early April 2014.
