Throwback Thursday: Mark Morrison – ‘Return Of The Mack’

Mark Morrison is an English R&B singer. Although he became a commercial success nearly overnight, his career was plagued by run-ins with the law that prevented him from consolidating his position as a star.

His classic single “Return of the Mack” was released in the United Kingdom in March 1996 and reached No. 1 on the UK Singles chart a month later. It reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in early summer 1997 for one week and went platinum. The song even stayed on the Billboard charts for a lengthy 25 weeks. The song’s track includes a sample from the song “Genius of Love” by American band Tom Tom Club. It additionally samples “Games” by Chuckii Booker.
