  • Artist: Mario
  • Track: Somebody Else
  • Feat. Nicki Minaj
  • Producer: Polow da Don
  • Album: Untitled (TBD)

Getting dumped is one thing; getting dumped and watching the man or woman you love run straight into the arms of Somebody Else is... well, it's f**king devastating. Unfortunately, that's exactly the situation in which R&B hitmaker Mario finds himself on the latest single off his forthcoming RCA Records debut. (Fall 2011's The Walls precedes it.) In contrast to the chilly style of his last song release, Killa, this cut boasts a more upbeat, hip hop-informed vibe. Polow da Don backs the artist's grief-stricken verses with thumping percussion and chopped soul snippets, allowing the sampled vocals to accompany Mario on the hook. The woman in question (as played by a surprisingly understated Nicki Minaj) offers her own perspective regarding their split on verse three. Mario was quoted as saying, “I hope this new song breathes new life into R&B.” Has he achieved that lofty goal? If you think so, you'll be able to cop the record on iTunes tomorrow, May 21. Watch our pages for the latest on Mario's fifth full-length, which has yet to receive a title or a solid drop date.
