Mario Taps Nicki Minaj for New Single ‘Somebody Else’

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.
