One of the most significant female artists in the annals of contemporary music, Elliott is making history once again in 2024 with the OUT OF THIS WORLD — The Missy Elliott Experience – her first-ever headline tour, accompanied by her longtime co-stars Busta RhymesCiara and special guest Timbaland. An avant-garde solo superstar, pioneering songwriter-producer and across-the-board cultural icon, the four-time GRAMMY® Award- winning Elliott has attained unprecedented success, including 22 GRAMMY® nominations spanning three decades, eight MTV Video Music Awards and sales now exceeding 30M in the U.S. alone. All of Elliott’s six studio albums have each been Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) platinum certified or better, marking her as the only female rapper ever to achieve that remarkable accomplishment. Among her countless triumphs, 2023 saw Elliott named the first female hip-hop artist to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, rightly declaring her, “a true pathbreaker in a male-dominated genre.”


Elliott’s most recent work, 2019’s EP, “Iconology,” drew instant acclaim upon its surprise release, with USA Today declaring it, “a master class at the school of Missy Misdemeanor Elliott.” That same year saw the iconic star making history as the first female hip-hop artist ever to receive the MTV Video Music Awards’ prestigious Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. In 2019, she broke new ground as the first female hip-hop artist and third-ever rapper to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In addition, Elliott became the first female rapper to receive an honorary Doctor of Music degree from Berklee College of Music, celebrating her lasting contributions to music and popular culture. Further accolades followed in 2021, with Elliott named among the 12 inaugural inductees for the new Atlanta landmark, The Black Music & Entertainment Walk of Fame and later honored with a star on the world-famous Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2022, Elliott’s hometown of Portsmouth, VA, celebrated its favorite daughter by presenting her with the Key to the City, renaming a portion of McLean Street to “Missy Elliott Boulevard” and declaring October 17 as Missy Elliott Day. What’s more, Virginia’s Norfolk State University awarded Elliott with the Presidential Commencement Medallion and an honorary degree at their fall 2022 commencement ceremony, acknowledging her, “outstanding professional achievements and extraordinary contributions to public service.” 


In addition to her historic induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2023, the Recording Academy’s Black Music Collective presented Elliott with its Recording Academy Global Impact Award, honoring her personal and professional achievements in the music industry. The 2023 GRAMMY® Awards saw Elliott among the superstars celebrating the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, joining such icons as LL Cool J, Ice-T, Method Man, Busta Rhymes and Salt-N-Pepa for a landmark performance honoring the genre’s diverse history. Additional 2023 tributes included the Black Music Honors’ “Music Innovator Icon” Award as well as a special ESSENCE cover story celebrating her headline performance at the 2023 ESSENCE Festival of Culture in New Orleans. Indeed, Elliott deserves all the flowers and then some. Now, with her OUT OF THIS WORLD — The Missy Elliott Experience hitting arenas across North America and new music on the horizon, Elliott continues to stand tall over pop culture as a true creative architect and revolutionary artist, her prophetic sound and vision as groundbreaking and influential as ever before.


Busta Rhymes persists and perseveres as one of history’s most indomitable, impactful and influential rappers. His patented tongue-twisting flow and lyrical fireworks changed the art form, flooding the culture with speed and begging it to maintain pace. He has garnered a staggering 12 GRAMMY® Award nominations, sold over 10 million albums worldwide, and delivered seven Top 10 debuts on the Billboard 200. Dubbed “the greatest performer of all time” by Jay-Z and “the James Brown of hip-hop” by Phife Dawg, he notably made it from the humblest of beginnings in East Flatbush Brooklyn, all the way to the White House visiting with President Barack Obama. 


He is a rare force of nature who began his career with Leaders of the New School and has collaborated with everyone from Dr. Dre, Janet Jackson, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Missy Elliott, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige and Mariah Carey to Dave Chappelle, Ozzy Osbourne and Chris Rock. Esteemed outlets such as Billboard, Vibe and The Source placed him on their list of the Top 50 MCs of All Time, while MTV has called him “one of hip-hop’s greatest visual artists.” BET Jams crowned Busta Rhymes’ “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See” as the “Greatest Hip-Hop Video of All-Time.”  He was named the 2023 BET Icon/Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. As an accomplished actor, Busta Rhymes’ diverse career filmography spans the acclaimed “Higher Learning,” “Narc,” and “Finding Forrester.” His animated hits include The Rugrats Movie and blockbusters such as Shaft and Halloween: Resurrection. Busta Rhymes launched the next phase of his career with his 2023 aptly titled album, “Blockbusta,” executive produced by Pharrell Williams, Timbaland and Swizz Beatz via Busta Rhymes’ label, The Conglomerate ENT and distributed by Epic Records. The game is still just trying to catch up to this Icon.


Ciara is a GRAMMY® Award-winning singer/songwriter, entrepreneur and philanthropist. Over her 20-year career, she has sold over 23 million records and 22 million singles worldwide, including chart-topping hits “Goodies,” “Ride,” “Oh,” “1, 2 Step,” “I Bet,” “Level Up” and “How We Roll.” Ciara is not only known for her vocal talent and dance moves but she has starred in both TV and film roles, most recently the reimagined “The Color Purple.” Ciara is the founder and CEO of Beauty Marks Entertainment (BME), a company at the vanguard of the fast-changing music industry. With a business model built on fully supporting the artist, the female-led enterprise places Ciara at the forefront of forward-thinking entertainers taking an entrepreneurial approach to their careers. Along with her husband Russell Wilson, she launched The House of LR&C, a new concept in retail with a focus on doing good. In keeping with her entrepreneurial spirit, Ciara is the co-owner of Ten To One rum and recently launched her skincare line OAM (On A Mission) which provides clinical-level results through vitamin C. As part of her ongoing philanthropy work, she co-founded with her husband, the Why Not You Foundation, which is dedicated to fighting poverty through education and empowering today’s youth to lead with a “why not you” attitude. Most recently they became New York Times Bestselling authors with the release of their first children’s book “Why Not You” (Random House) which was inspired by the work they do through their foundation.


Multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning producer, artist, author and entrepreneur Timbaland is one of the greatest minds in music history. With more top 10 hits than Elvis Presley or the Beatles, he has taught the world to “say it with sound.” Dubbed the “Emperor of Sound” and ranked number three by Billboard on a list of 50 of the greatest producers of the 21st century. Timbaland, the musical mastermind, is behind the most memorable hits of our times. With over 18 GRAMMY® nominations, four GRAMMY® wins and 200+ American Society of Composers, Authors and Producers (ASCAP) Music awards, his indelible imprint has been stamped on countless hits from some of the most successful and legendary artists in the world from Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” and “Big Pimpin,” to Justin Timberlake’s “Sexy Back” and “Cry Me A River,” Aaliyah’s “One In A Million,” Missy Elliott’s “Get Ur Freak On” and “Work It,” Ginuwine’s “Pony,” and One Republic’s “Apologize” among many others. Timbaland’s credits have established him as one of the most iconic producers of all time. 


To date, Timbaland has released two books, a biography aptly titled “The Emperor of Sound” and his children’s book “Nighttime Symphony” and in the middle of the Global Pandemic, he and Swizz Beatz launched VERZUZ. The series garnered a Webby Award for Special Achievement – “Break the Internet,” as it crushed the Instagram record for livestreaming. Timbaland and Swizz received the “Shine A Light Award” at the 2020 BET Awards, while Bloomberg Businessweek included them among, “The 50 Most Influential People: ‘The People Who Changed Global Business” in the same year. Within a year, VERZUZ also won a NCAAP Image Award for “Outstanding Show (Series or Special).” Dozens of television shows, a Billboard cover and more have chronicled and studied “The VERZUZ Effect.”

Corazón by Baires, a new luxury dining concept set to debut on May 24


Corazón by Baires, a new luxury dining concept set to debut on May 24

40 oz Beef Tomahawk

ORLANDO, Fla. – April 24, 2024 – For nearly a decade, Mango's Tropical Café has set the standard for nightlife in Central Florida. It is now embarking on a brand-new evolution that will integrate fine dining with its vibrant essence. Corazón by Baires, a chic and intimate restaurant is set to debut on May 24 inside Mango’s as a collaboration with Baires Grill, one of America’s best Argentinian steakhouses.

Coconut and Curry Mussels

The innovative partnership will deliver an iconic gastronomic experience with globally inspired Latin American cuisine. From the gaucho-perfected grilling technique of grass-fed Argentinean beef to fresh seafood and pasta with Mediterranean influences and Asian-inspired dishes, Corazón by Baires menu, created by Executive Chef Paulo Osorio, is ready for center stage. The result is a remarkable international menu as diverse as the culture that inspires it. An extensive wine collection completes the ensemble.


“Orlando is one of the world’s most visited cities so, not surprisingly, we have been eager to expand here for a long time,” said Sofia Koenig, general manager of Baires Holdings. “This partnership gives us an invaluable opportunity to successfully introduce our restaurant to a new audience. By sharing in Mango’s expertise and knowledge of the market we will win the hearts of Central Floridians and of the thousands of travelers that visit Orlando every day.”

“Corazón by Baires is aimed to be a favorite of locals, convention center attendees, and theme park tourists searching for late-night dining. It is in Baires’ DNA to serve later into the evening than other restaurants to meet the needs of guests who wish to dine far after the sun sets,” Koenig continued.

The synergy between the two brands is indisputable. Baires Grill and Mango’s both trace their decades-old roots to Miami Beach, from where they have grown to other markets and achieved national recognition for delivering superb hospitality experiences.

“We are ushering in an unprecedented era with this partnership,” said Wallack Holdings CEO David Wallack. “It will lead the transformation of the I-Drive entertainment district into one that includes sophisticated dining experiences, luxury lounges, and high-end leisure options.”

Salmon a la plancha


The new restaurant concept and experience will adorn a vibrant reimagination within Mango’s for dinner reservations from 5 to 10:30 p.m. beginning on May 24. Menu highlights include a 40 oz. Tomahawk, 18 oz Certified Angus Ribeye, Andean Branzino with potatoes, chickpeas, and chorizo hash, and Fettuccini a la Ruota with Parmigiano Reggiano and truffle dust.

Corazón by Baires will serve dinner Wednesdays through Sundays. Reservations will be available through OpenTable. Sunday brunch is set to debut in the coming weeks.

After 10:30 p.m., the space will revert to Mango’s legendary nightclub where nighty fiestas, special concerts, and private events thrive.

Baires Grill has seven locations in South Florida, one in Midtown Manhattan, and another under construction in the Tribecca district of New York City. Baires Holdings has also leased additional space in the adjacent Hollywood Plaza Garage for a future restaurant concept.


The Mango’s evolution has much more in s exciting changes in store. KALI Ultra Lounge, a multi-million dollar, multi-sensorial experience, is scheduled to open this summer. Located at the second level of the 55,000-sq-ft complex, KALI will transform and set the standard for Orlando’s nightlife with a separate entrance, distinct vibe, and immersive experience, the ultra-lounge bar and bottle service will offer an exclusive list of premium spirits, luxurious handcrafted cocktails, and entertainment.

KALI, themed for the goddess of destruction and renewal, was envisioned as an immersive, video-centric club that can be customized to provide different atmospheres so that no two nights ever feel the same. It was designed by industry leader Michael Meacham, whose bold and innovative work can be experienced in high-end venues around the world including Tokyo, Dubai, Mexico, Las Vegas, New York, and Miami.

KALI is scheduled to open in the summer of 2024.


Wallack Holdings is helping to lead the evolution of the I-Drive Entertainment District, striving to keep the area competitive with convention-popular markets such as Las Vegas.

“The Orange County Convention Center is embarking on a $750M renovation, and more high-end, fine dining and entertainment options like Corazón by Baires and KALI Ultra Lounge will contribute to its success when competing with other well-positioned markets,” said Wallack Holdings COO Joshua Wallack.

“We will create dazzling experiences right here in the I-Drive Entertainment District as we enter a new era for our destination. This kind of collaboration between our companies to create a united vision of Corazon is so rare and special. We are very excited for Central Florida to have a culinary powerhouse like Baires make such big moves into our community,” Wallack continued.
