Nevada is Jon White, former lead vocalist for American Christian electro-pop act Capital Kings. On February 23, 2016, White announced he would be leaving the group to make solo music under his new moniker. This is his first solo single after signing to Straight Forward Music Group (under license to Capitol Records UK).
"The Mack" is Nevada's dedication to the 20th anniversary of Mark Morrison's "Return Of The Mack." Along with samples of the 1996 hit song, it also features an added verse from Fetty Wap.
