Congratulations are in order and well-deserved for the R&B group WanMor as they have signed with Mary J. Blige’s Beautiful Life Productions.
“WanMor is what we have been missing in music. There’s no one out like them,” said Kevin Liles, chairman & CEO of 300 Entertainment and Elektra Music Group in a recent interview. “It all comes down to their voices, songs, and fans. WanMor is bringing the superstar R&B group back. R&B is not dead. At 300, we are excited to partner again with Mary J Blige and her Beautiful Life team.”
Mary J. Blige echoched Liles’ sentiment in her own statement about the group.
“There’s been so much conversation about the state of R&B and the next generation of R&B artists,” says Mary J. Blige. “This generation has been giving us great R&B, and that feeling, that soul, and that sound remains in our DNA. When we heard WanMor sing, we knew we could stop looking. They are IT! Supporting and cultivating true R&B talent is why I started Beautiful Life Productions, and I couldn’t be more proud to do this with these young men.”
If you haven’t heard of WanMor, listen up. These brothers are descendant from R&B Royalty. The South Jersey-born brothers include: Big Boy, Chulo, Tyvas, and Rocco. The four are the sons of Wanyá Morris of Boyz II Men.
The group has not wasted anytime with getting new music out to the public. They have released their new single, “Every Pretty Girl in the City,” accompanied by a new video as well. In a statement to Billboard Magazine, the boys beam about their project and get straight to the heart of what’s behind the song.
“To us, EPGITC is a celebration of all girls in every city whose ‘pretty’ shine from the inside out.”
Ready to see for yourself that these boys are indeed making a name for themselves outside of that of their legendary father? Take a look at their video below.
In addition to signing with Mary J. Blige’s Beautiful Life Productions the quartet is also signed with 300 Entertainment.
