It’s been a long time since we’ve heard from pop/rnb singer Mario who dominated the charts back in 2004 with “Let Me Love You” which went number 1 on the billboard charts all around the world. By the end of the 2000’s Mario was named number 98 on Billboards “Artist Of The Decade” list.
“Let Me Help You” is the new single taken from his forthcoming album “Paradise Cove” which is set to be released at the end of the year and fans of the singer like me I can tell you are excited. Like always this song is so true to the style of music we are used to hearing from Mario, as the lead single gives off rhythms of an island groove and still managing to deliver those pop beats and his smoothe r&b vocals.
The simple message of his new single is ‘you don’t have to love on your own’. In the song he’s a selfless lover and although he’s fully aware that his muse can love on her own, all he wants to do is make it a little easier by meeting her half way.
In an interview with FADER Mario told them this about R&B today saying Mario “Right now I feel like R&B needs to feel cool and fun again. A simple conversation, catchy melody and a story that draws my listeners in is what I feel like “Let Me Help You” does. There is enough music about egotistical perceptions and not enough about love especially in urban music. Love is still cool to me!”
Mario released the video for the song March 3rd and its directed by Mario and Meg Gamez, with the visual finding the R&B singer walking on the beaches of Malibu in a wetsuit after surfing. His strut catches the gaze of a gorgeous woman, who appears trapped in a loveless relationship with a grimacing man.
If you’re a fan of Mario’s style of music then you’ll definitely love this song. I expect it to chart decently on the Billboard charts, and hopefully this might bring the artist back into the spotlight after the failure of his 2009 EP D.N.A. “Let Me Help You” is available on ITunes now.
