Singer Mario has returned to the music scene. In celebration, the R&B crooner appears on the latest issue of VULKAN magazine. In the article, he discusses his hiatus, working with singer Zendaya on the reality series “Greatest Hits”, working in the studio, his fifteen year career and more. Regarding his new single, Mario stated that it’s him being free, having fun and testing the waters regarding what he can do and what his fans want from him. As for the performance of his hit “Let Me Love You” with Zendaya on “Greatest Hits”, he says he liked that she gave the song a female perspective, which was inspiring to him. He added that it’s great to know that women still want to hear the song and want men who know what love is.  His accompanying photo shoot shows the singer showing off chic fashion as well as his muscular body. There’s no word on when fans can expect an album from the singer, however. Although it’s now November, rising singer/songwriter October London is looking to make his mark during the closing months of 2016. The crooner, who was discovered by rapper Snoop Dogg, emerged with the single “Black Man In America”, which not only showed off his range, but also presented a classic sound during modern times. With his debut album “Color Blind: Love”, fans can look forward to the singer bringing old school R&B back. Released at the end of October, the album features eight tracks that drip pure nostalgia. “Black Man In America” closes the album as an outro. Faith Evans makes a special appearance on the track “Bring Me Up” and proves to be a great compliment to London on the jazzy groove. October London is gifted and dedicated to providing fans with quality music. Fans can purchase “Color Blind: Love” now. Singer/actress KeKe Palmer is letting it be known that she’s not standing for any nonsense. On her new EP “Lauren”, she delivers five bodacious tracks that reflect on the highs and lows of her love life.
