Preview Our World: Up Close with Music Mogul Andre Harrell

Legendary marketing mastermind discusses his journey from Uptown through Motown to president

His name is synonymous with the likes of Mary J. Blige and Sean “Diddy” Combs but Andre Harrell is always on the lookout for music’s next big thing. This weekend on an all-new Our World with Black Enterprise, host Marc Lamont Hill [@marclamonthill] sits down with the legendary music mogul and marketing mastermind to discuss his journey from Uptown through Motown to president.

Harrell, widely credited with creating the “New Jack Swing” sound that ruled radio throughout the 1990s, now finds himself seeking out the next big superstar as head of Harrell Records. “It’s not just about business, it’s about giving people opportunity,” says Harrell. Look for Hamilton Park, the first group signed to his label, to release their full length debut this fall.

A cake, a ring and a fly dress is not a marriage: In light of the explosive statistic that Black women are half as likely to marry than their White counterparts, our On The Record roundtable tackles the explosive topic, “Is Marriage Dead in the African American Community?”

Plus, meet professional sailor Donald Lawson, who first went to sea when he was just six-years-old. Today his goal is to become the first African American to race around the world and win!

Our World with Black Enterprise airs on TV ONE every Sunday at 10:00 a.m. and on local stations across the country all weekend.
