Please let me know what day and time would work best for you and we will further arrange.
“PROM” was inspired by my high school prom experience. Being home-schooled through high school made it very awkward when I had to hang around my peers and observe their actions,” says Young Marco. “While making this record with my guitar the day after prom I tried to make the night as vivid as possible through the song and it actually turned out great. I just want this song to be the prom anthem in all schools when they attend this special event, I want it to give them the same energy it gives me,” he adds.
“PROM” is the official second single from Young Marco’s anticipated debut video EP, “4 Our Generation”, available on iTunes and all other digital retailers on April 22nd.
In the fall of 2015, YOUNG MARCO hit the road in support of his critically-acclaimed domestic violence inspired single, “Gone Long Gone” and performed the song at various shelters for tons of domestic violence victims. In the coming weeks he will pick-up where he left off and will embark on the “4 Our Generation” promotional tour and it will include stops in Washington DC, Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Houston, Dallas, Chicago and Detroit. On April 18th, YOUNG MARCO will make a guest appearance on the VH1 hit TV show, “Black Ink Crew” as he stops by the shop and hangs with the cast while getting a tattoo.
