Yesterday, Bossip caught up with Mario to discuss his new album and he gave Bossip an exclusive first listen to his recently titled “And Then There Was Me” jawn. Certified hitmaker, Sean Garrett, gave hit two cents:
Sean G: This is 2009. This where we’re really starting to show people what we’re really made of. Me and Bangladesh just had our 14th #1 record, Beyonce “Diva”. This record that we’re doing for Mario is really going to show people who he really is. This is gonna show people the swag he really has.
Pop the hood to see plenty more Sean Garrett (sans the glasses), Bangladesh, Mario’s “sang face” and more music news when you
Sean G: He particularly has been the kind of artist that’s been obedient to the record label to give them an opportunity to express their opinions. He’s done that, so now he’s doing him.
Mario: The album is called “And Then There Was Me”. It’s about growth and it’s about showing people who I really am. It’s not just about the me, personally. My fans deserve that. The music business deserves that. It’s an introspective album; I’m putting it out there. I’m still a young man. I’m 22 years old, so I’m not trying to get too deep with it. But, it’s really about making records that are gonna be around twenty years from now. It’s slated to drop in June.
Bossip: What’s the first single?
Mario: The first single is called “Break-up”.
Bossip: Is it a club song or a slow song?
Mario: It’s a little bit of everything on this record. That’s why I love it. Sean is like a brother to me. He knows me. So, when he did this record, he was definitely thinking about me. It’s a club record and every man has experienced this situation before. It’s like…why would you want to break up with me when you gon’ get the same thing with the next man. But, he ain’t gon do it as fly as I can. I can’t wait to perform it. It’s going to be a movie. Look for the movie! We’re not calling this a single or a video, we’re calling it a movie.
Sean G: We ain’t shooting no more scenes, you gotta start shooting movies if you want people to believe what you feel.
Bossip: What collabos are on the album?
Mario: Right now we have Luda. We have somebody special that might jump on it, but I have to get that confirmed first before I can name them.
So…who’s checking for Mario’s album?
