Limited LP : 180g Purple Vinyl
On 22nd April 1996, a relatively unknown Mark Morrison took the world by storm and released his debut album ‘Return Of The Mack’. The lead single would go on to become one of the biggest songs of the 90’s topping the charts in the UK, across Europe and hitting number two in the US Billboard Hot 100 the following year going platinum in the US (and staying in the charts for 40 weeks) and then onto double-platinum in the UK.
The track launched the album of the same name selling over 3 million copies worldwide and making Morrison the first artist in British pop history to have five Top 10 hits from a debut album. Morrison’s notoriety rapidly grew both in and out of the studio, but the track became the benchmark of UK R&B revitalising the scene and has withstood the test of time with it recently again being rediscovered in global syncs for MacDonald, Google and Uber Eats as well as a reworked version by Chris Brown x G Eazy earlier this year.
