After introducing himself as a competent actor, Mario is back his roots, singing.
Mario has set back his singing persona by preparing third studio album titled "GO". The album that is due July 17 via J-Records, presents the work from noted producers such as Timbaland, The Neptunes, Scott Storch and Akon.
"I worked with a lot of different people. And you got to talk with the writers and producers and really be in front of it and really give your perspective on things," he said. "That's the best way to go - be involved and creatively help to come up with certain situations that cater to who you are."
"GO" includes the songs written by Ne-Yo and Pharrell Williams plus guest voice from Alicia Keys, Tyrese Gibson and Nelly. The first single "How Do I Breathe" will circulate urban radios on April 30 while the video is shot in two weeks time. The track "Crying Out For Me" will follow as the second single.
