Artist To Watch Amber Mark just released my favorite song by her so far. It’s called “Put You On,” and it features the always enjoyable rap-crooner DRAM.
Mark has had a good 2018. Back in May she released the Conexão EP, featuring a truly tremendous cover of Sade’s “Love Is Stronger Than Pride,” and followed it with her debut TV performance. “Put You On,” a ’90s-vintage R&B and hip-hop party jam that basically incites dancing on contact, is her first single since Conexão. In a press release, Mark described it like so:
The idea of the song came from wanting to talk about a woman who made it out of the hood in NY and into the top of success. Cardi B was really blowing up at the time and I thought a similar story to hers would be such a vibe for the production. The beat sounded so much like summer in NY and I figured it would be dope to lyrically make a subtle NY anthem.
“Put You On” is out now on PMR/Interscope.
