To say we have been patently waiting for Mario to release his new music is an understatement. The highly underrated singer has been in the lab working on a mixtape, which has been much delayed, and his fifth album, but there seems to be some light in the tunnel as the Baltimore native has released a brand new buzz single in “Killa,” produced by Glass John. Over the subtle, marginally hypnotic beat the R&B crooner subdues to his addiction to a irresistible woman, included with a lyric sample of R. Kelly.
“With ‘Killa’ I wanted 2 articulate that special something that men wish all women had & the thing that some women are proud 2 know they possess,” explained Mario.
The song represents the beginning of a new chapter for Mario. “New ideas… New sound… New bank… New melodies… New ladies… New perspective,” he tweeted. Hear it below!
