Do you remember when Mario came out with his version of Just A Friend? Quite honestly, I never really warmed up to the Biz Markie version, so when the R&B version arrived, I was like, ok I can deal with this. I don’t mind that Biz made an appearance, but him carrying the whole song?
Just a gimmick more than anything else.
Mario then released some other smoothed out tracks, including Let Me Love You and How Can I Breathe.
I really thought he was going to move into that upper realm of R&B singers, but it just did not quite happen.
He is back with a new track. It is called Drowning, and it is a single off the upcoming album Dancing Shadows.
