Staten Island R&B singer Mack Wilds may not have a drug empire or a desk-sized mound of cocaine (...yet!) but, as far as he’s concerned, the world is his. Which isn’t to say he’s keeping it all to himself. On his debut feature and latest single, Own It, the Sony Music signee invites a special woman to become his queen and reign over the globe alongside him. His lofty overtures receive a fittingly grandiose accompaniment courtesy of heavyweight producer Salaam Remi, who crafts an opulent beat driven by hip-hop percussion and cinematic strings. Like what you’re hearing? Then keep it locked; New York: A Love Story as yet lacks a drop date, but we’ll keep you supplied with fresh tunes and release details as they emerge.
