“It Was OK”: New Dance Music from Mark Wolf and Khalil

Mark Wolf (@themarkwolf) is a versatile musician and accomplished guitarist based in New York City. Khalil (@khalil) is an R&B singer-songwriter. Not too long ago, they released a wonderful dance single, “It Was OK,” via ONErpm.

“‘It Was OK’ started as a simple piano part that sounded fun enough to play in a club. It wasn’t until I listened to ‘Unfazed’ by Khalil and sampled his voice that the song came to life and became something I’m excited to share and sing along with. As a debut release, I want this song to set a precedent for my sound, which is fun, danceable, and full of musicality.” – Mark Wolf explained

“It Was OK” is a sultry fusion of house music and R&B. Mark Wolf layers in an upbeat piano with glimmering melodies and a subtly dynamic bassline, which combines with Khalil’s emotive and soulful vocals for a track that feels at home on the radio, relaxing or even for a groovy moment in the club.

“It Was OK” marks Wolf’s new beginning as an artist, though he experienced success back in 2021 with his single “Sticky” with Tank God, the producer of “Rockstar” by Post Malone. The track was released as a music video NFT and sold out the 30 editions in its campaign within a week. Wolf is stepping up massively with this unique new release, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.

Mark Wolf has made significant contributions to the music industry, with his work featured on records released by prestigious labels such as Capitol Records and Hitco. His artistic prowess has been highlighted on tracks like “Priceless” by Joseph Black and “EVOL” Acoustic by Khalil, the latter of which achieved playlisting on Spotify’s New Music Friday and Apple Music’s Day One and A-List R&B.

Beyond the studio, Wolf has carved a niche for himself on the stage, holding club residencies at renowned venues like SoHo Grand, The Palace, Common Ground, Nebula, and Public. His performances have extended to collaborations with top-notch brands, including Crown Royal, Range Rover, Therabody, and Ciroc.

Khalil, once the quintessential teen idol, has evolved into an iconic figure in R&B, collaborating with industry luminaries such as Justin Bieber, Usher, White Iverson, and Rex Kudo. His tenure with Teen Island produced chart-toppers like “Hey Lil Mama” featuring Lil Twist, which peaked at #5 on 106 & Park and spent 13 weeks on Billboard’s “Bubbling Under” chart.

Khalil’s close friendship with Justin Bieber led to a record deal with Def Jam, resulting in the release of the star-studded “Long Story Short” mixtape on Soundcloud, featuring production credits from legends like Mike Dean and DJ Mustard, and collaborations with Birdman, Tory Lanez, and standout songs with Justin Bieber, including “Playtime” and “Time for Bed.” Khalil’s journey showcases his talent, from opening in stadiums for Usher on the OMG tour to hosting 106 & Park and amassing almost 16M streams on his independent singles “Quality” and “Simple.”
