New Music: Mario f/ Nicki Minaj – ‘Somebody Else’

Somebody Else

It’s been four years, but Mario is back. The R&B crooner grabs Nicki Minaj for “Somebody Else,” the first single off his upcoming fifth album.

“I hope this new song breathes new life into R&B and where I’m gonna take it!” said Mario of the Polow Da Don-produced song.

Listen to the radio rip below. The song hits iTunes on Tuesday.

    Is this bad audio or is the beat supposed to sound muffled like this? Hate it, except Nicki’s verse. She killed per usual.

    @Jason, I found the demo on youtube and I’m pretty sure it wasn’t Frank’s voice.

    For some reason, this track sent me on a nostalgia trip. Can’t wait for the CDQ version! Mario’s back, another reason why 2013 is the rebirth of R&B, imo.

    Umm I was really expecting wayyy more than this as a come back for mario….I think he needs me to write for him. This beat isn’t dope at all. He has such amazing vocals but this isn’t the tune to come back with.

    If Mario was smart he would have put J cole on this track he would have murdered this beat. Nicki isnt fit for this beat in my opinion.
