Mario gets post-apocalyptic in his new video for “I Need More.”
A little over four months after unleashing the trap-inspired single, Mario unveils its cinematic new visual. In it, the crooner-dancer goes into some sort of internment camp run by the “Rain Dogs.”
However, he’s not down and out in this dire situation. Instead, he inspires other prisoners in a unified rebellion with a motivational speech in between athletic dance moves.
“I Need More” is a single off Mario’s first album in seven years, Paradise Cove. Earlier this year, he revealed that the project would showcase what he’s been missing.
“We were able to create a concept, lyrically and sonically, that expresses exactly what I was feeling: the void,” he said. “Even in the midst of manifesting our wildest desires and material gains, it still ain’t enough. You need more: truth, love, happiness, freedom.”
