Mario - If (Freestyle)

Posted 8 years ago
Tags: Mario
Producer:
Stargate
Album:
Unreleased

Amid the delays for his third studio album, Go!, singer Mario has done everything possible to generate and sustain a buzz.  Even though How Do I Breathe and Crying Out For Me have been moderately successful at Billboard and video, Mario’s label J Records somehow hasn’t billed the album as a priority.  Thus, Mario has taken the matter into his own hands and recorded a new song that is atypical for an R&B singer.  Using the Stargate-produced beat from Trey Songz’ Can’t Help But Wait, Mario belts out the words to Beyonce’s If (with gender pronoun changes made of course).  Some might suspect a hidden message is being sent to the bigwigs at J.  To find out if the message got through, visit your nearest record store on November 27th and ask for Go!.
