Mario Taps Nicki Minaj for New Single ‘Somebody Else’

Mario

The wait is over for Mario fans. The R&B singer will return next week with a brand new single featuring Nicki Minaj.

“Somebody Else,” produced by Polow Da Don, is scheduled to hit iTunes on Tuesday, May 21. “I hope this new song breathes new life into R&B and where I’m gonna take it!” said the 26-year-old in a handwritten note.

Mario’s upcoming fifth album will reflect the changes in his life. “Nothing can explain the excitement in my heart at this point & time in my life,” he said. “I have changed so much as a man, artist, & creator, and I realize more and more everyday that it’s not about me. It’s about me doing what GOD wants me to do; change the world with my GIFT.”

His previous album, 2009’s DNA, debuted at No. 9 and spawned the hit single “Break-Up” featuring Gucci Mane and Sean Garrett.

    @The Truth, i love mario but i have to agree… this single will probably flop or only do moderately well simply because he is reusing another artist he already collaborated with before.

    @The Truth, Did you forget to change your name (To make it seem like others were agreeing with you.) or are you talking to yourself?

    i notice most urban acts recyle feature collaborations… which is why many of them get overshadowed by other genres.

    That Break Up Song Was Nicki in her mixtape days. That song was not an official release so most ppl didnt hear the song. Plus her verse on that song was a strong 15 seconds. This song will be awesome!

    You ppl r stupid who r saying another collab from them.. they never did, she added her on verse with breakup. It was featured on a mixtape of hers. Do YOUR HW YA’LL.

  13. Boom!

    Say what you want about Nicki but she always delivers good features too artist, so I’m pretty sure it’ll be nice. I do believe that she should stop all the features & disappear too record her third album, because it has too be dope ( she has a lot of naysayers). She’s a good rapper so I expect nothing less.

    I’ve been waiting for new Mario. Not too excited for the Nicki feature, but it should be decent.
