* Twisted -Multi-platinum songwriter, producer and R&B charmer Marcus Darc has been droppin drawers and making panties wet since the 80’s when he formed his first group in Chicago, R-Kelly & MGM.
As one of the original new school sexy soul singers, his signature sound has ‘erected’ a body of work that has all ways and always catered to what women want to hear.
Darc possesses no inhibitions when he writes, produces and performs for his target audience of females. Yet unlike most of today’s hip hop lyricists, who shun sentiment over gratuitous sex, Darc sensuously aims for hearts and hips, swaying them with synchronized satisfaction.
“Twisted,” on Lucky Entertainment, his latest musical release since dropping “Pretty Woman” in 2013, is perhaps unprecedented in its aural explicitness. Darc leaves very little to the imagination when wooing and cooing his love interests, while inciting fantasy and fervor to a fever pitch.
“Twisted” is loaded with 13 shades of succulent seduction. Darc dedicates the production to Prince, his primary influence in the art of acoustic eroticism. Multi-platinum producer, Hurt M Badd, produced most of the project, including the first single release “The Greatest,”which is currently sweeping digital radio in heavy rotation.
Hurt M Badd and Darc have been writing and producing since their days together in the group B-Rezell on Death Row Records, when the two were signed to the label.
Badd produced Tupac’s “Makaveli”album and is often acknowledged for his work on Pac’s singles “Hail Mary,” “Me & My Girlfriend” and “Just Like Daddy,” from the classic CD. Chicago’s own Grammy nominated mastering engineer Slavic Livins, known for his work with Snoop Dogg, Common, Chief Keef and Avant, also lent his mixing talent and expertise to the project.
“Collaborating with Hurt M Badd after all these years was great,” offers Darc about the musical process and vision for “Twisted.” “Badd knows as well as anybody, how I have always been an advocate for the ladies.
A lot of artists sing ‘at’ them, I sing ‘to’ them. My music was considered too explicit back in the day, but now the musical arena is pretty much no holds barred.
Time has finally caught up to a vision I had years ago. My mission to tastefully tease and please has come full circle, and “Twisted” is really not twisted at all anymore. I have always stated that women are sexual creatures and they crave music that acknowledges them as such.”
“The Greatest,” the debut single from “Twisted,” currently in heavy digital radio rotation release, unabashedly boasts Darc’s steamy sexual prowess, as he stirs passion and heat with tales of his magic stick. “XX” is a seductive invitation to ‘cum’ along with Darc, while “Let It Out” is a bounce-flavored ode to freakiness. “I know You Want Dis Luv” is a candid disclosure about the pleasures of self-induced romancing while “Shake A Lil Azz” is a classic twerk-a-thon anthem. “If Only” explores forbidden lust and “J.O.” unveils and details a cautionary tale of confessional gratification.
Darc’s musical legacy is quite extensive. His recent in-depth interview on Bomb1st.com(https://youtu.be/_rtXADa0Xbs), where the artist/entertainer highlighted his industry exploits over the years, has garnered over 11,500 listens. During the interview, Darc discusses his uncanny knack for tapping new talent, i.e. R. Kelly, Hurt M Badd and even Jamie Foxx, (who Darc was about to replace R. Kelly with in the group MGM, before Foxx booked “In Living Color”) to his never before revealed run-ins with notorious Death Row founder Suge Knight. Part 2 of the interview session is slated to post soon.

Over the years, Darc has shared the stage as a performer with R-Kelly, Snoop Dogg, and Frankie Beverly & Maze, to name a few. His “My Pretty Woman” CD was a pinnacle achievement for him, showcasing his profound development as an artist. Songs like “So Many Wayz,” “Beautiful,” and “Touch U” were laced with live instrumentals, luscious vocals and evocative refrains, painting a tapestry of devotion to women and the art of loving them. While “Pretty Woman” was “G” rated, “Twisted” revels in a more explicit homage to the opposite sex.
