Mario told me that he's glad fans are receptive to his new single and that he credits himself for the successful sound.

"You know what's crazy? Not to shot down any A&R's, [but] I pretty much A&R my own projects. Really.

"I had a whole album done before this project that I wasn't pleased with -Actually, my album was suppose to come out a year ago."

Don't hold your breath on hearing any of the unreleased material, because Mario's onto the new sounds. Translation: We're not going to hear any of the scrapped marterial.

We also learned three new facts about Mario, one of them being that he LOVES the electric slide!
