It may not be too much of a stretch to say that Staten Island-bred, R&B sensation Mack Wilds is having the best week ever. His independent debut, New York City: A Love Story, continues to gain critical and commercial acclaim, he’s taken over Times Square courtesy of Good Morning America to perform his hit single “Own It”, and now rumors of a steamy romance with fellow crooner Sevyn Streeter continue to be fueled thanks to a provocative performance between the two at S.O.B.’s New York location.
Mack’s debut album has been bolstered by the success of its lead single “Own It”, and to further impress the song upon the psyche of consumers he joined the cast of ABC’s early morning news and talk staple to perform the jam in front of a packed studio audience on Manhattan’s most famed block.
He kept his winning streak alive by joining Sevyn Streeter on stage during her show at S.O.B.’s earlier this week and she was sure to make it worth his while. The two budding artists have been romantically linked as of late and Sevyn added to the rumor mill by making Mack her muse for a performance of her single, “Sex On The Ceiling”. Page 31 caught all the action live, as Sevyn put on a display that has had people talking ever since.
Mack Wilds looks to keep his spring momentum going into the summer as he hinted on Twitter at an upcoming collaboration with Philly stalwart Chill Moody. Chill put his own spin on “Own It” making it a “#nicethings mix“, and an official collab from the two could make a big splash at The Roots Picnic, which Chill is scheduled to perform at this May.
Watch Mack put on a show for Times Square, Sevyn put on a show for Mack, and Mack & Chill discuss their upcoming collab below.
