Mack Wilds had no idea his debut album “New York: A Love Story” would be as successful as it was. The 12-track disc spawned the infectious hit “Own It” and received critical acclaim from peers. “New York: A Love Story” earned Wilds a Grammy nomination that was followed up with a 2014 BET Awards nomination for best new artist. Within a year, Mack Wilds solidified a position among the next generation of R&B stars.
Wilds is a friend of #TeamBeautiful, so when we requested he perform one of his album cuts,”Don’t Turn Me Down” for our live performance series Interludes, he obliged with a charming smile. The Salaam Remi and Rico Love is a sexy and tempting ballad that feels like the lead single off a nostalgic movie soundtrack.
We caught up with Mack at the 2014 BET Awards and gabbed with the rising star about the BET Experience weekend. Watch his steamy performance then check out our interview:
