We were first introduced to Mali Music earlier this year when we featured him in our “Base Level” column that highlights up and coming artists on the brink of stardom. A few months later, we’re jamming out to his major label debut, “Mali Is…” The 26-year-old is on a mission to revive the essence of R&B by injecting the genre with the love it deserves.

Mali’s master plan to bring that feel good music back to a saturated industry is cushioned by his song-writing ability. He’s penned songs for Jennifer Hudson and has over 100 songs in his portfolio. His charming smile is a bonus.

His single “Beautiful” reached #16 on R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs chart and #36 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and clinched the #2 spot on the iTunes Top R&B/Soul Songs chart, while topping both the Gospel Digital Songs chart and Hot Gospel songs chart.

Watch Mali perform the hit song on Interludes, above.
