Grammy nominated artist Mack Wilds also known as Tristan Wilds returns with “After Hours” a 12-track R&B/Soul project. “After Hours” serves as his sophomore release after 2014’s New York: A Love Story.
Mack Wilds, a well-known and established actor in Hollywood has something to prove with his suave style and debonair vocals.
“After Hours” is a well-crafted return which spotlights Mack’s true abilities. The solid project only features the likes of Wale, Tink, and Cam Wallace.
The LP touches on the subject of love and sex often, who doesn’t love that? And when I say “sex” it’s more classy and seductive than raunchy. It’s quite enjoyable. Mack Wilds is a true smooth mack.
The strongest song on the project is Vibes in my opinion. His delivery here is smooth, clean, mellow and without a hiccup.
In “Stolen Gold”, Wilds gives “Mr. Steal Your Girl” a run for his money.
“Couldthisbelove?” serves as a true “After Hours” interlude as Wilds croons over the a capella choir vocals.
Wilds takes on a certain confidence and ownership in the track “Stingy.” “Babe, when it come to you.Stingy”
“They want a piece of your loving but they won’t get nothing, cause straight up I’m cuffing yo ass off the rip cause you got the juice, so I guess I got the juice like that too.”
“Go Crazy” show Mack’s wild and freaky side, definitely a great addition to the LP.
“AfterHours” nears completion with somber track “Choose” A break-up track, where Wilds speaks on the love-loss he endured due to him and his ex-girl having other options.
The last track “Crash” is a lovely and fitting outro.
I am highly satisfied with AfterHours”. Wilds highly delivered on this project from production, vibe, and lyrics. This will definitely play in the Jeep this Spring.
“After Hours” is now available on Apple Music, take a listen for yourself.
