Since dropping his debut single “Just a Friend” back in 2002, Mario has been a consistent figure in R&B. And ahead of a his forthcoming album Dancing Shadows release, the Billboard Music Awards winner came through to the 8th Floor.
Mario’s newest single, “Drowning,” receives an acoustic performance in the Power studios that features just his signature vocals and the backing of a strummed guitar. Standing against the vibrant orange backdrop, Mario sings out:
The closer I get to you baby
Your water are rising
While her tears are falling
But I’m so close to you baby
Either way I’m thinking
I’m sinking, I’m not swimming
In your waters I’m drown, downing, drowning.
